The flagship product of ONKK Limited UK, the Cue turntable fuses “ultra modern design, innovative engineering and contemporary aesthetics to deliver superlative, mastertape-like sound reproduction” says the company’s recent press release. We’ve been speaking with the guys at ONKK for some time now and whilst the turntable will make its debut at the National Audio Show this coming weekend, the company are not releasing photographs other than this we found on Twitter. onkk_turntable

This brand new direct-drive turntable employs high precision DSP speed control, a bespoke resonance-damped aluminium plinth, unique pistonic suspension system and a silent ceramic bearing.

Cue offers a choice of three speeds (33, 45 and 78RPM), which can be adjusted in 1/100 RPM steps, memorised and recalled at the touch of a button. This is done by a simple, intuitive and ergonomic user interface.

Meticulous attention has been paid to mechanical vibration isolation, with the specially designed mass-damped cast aluminium plinth and the previously mentioned pistonic suspension system providing immunity from external resonance.

The silent, wearless ceramic bearing is designed to last for generations. Its special material allows a minute contact point which  is said to significantly reduce drag and permits instantaneous motor response to changing load conditions. Speed fluctuations are sensed and adjusted in milliseconds.

Cue is handmade in the United Kingdom and comes with a five year parts guarantee.
