Nottingham Analogue Studio was founded in Great Britain over four decades ago and produces some of the finest turntables in the world. The primary purpose of better analogue LP playback is to savour every last bit of music buried in the timeless grooves, and Nottingham’s design philosophy does just that.
The basic design idea, incorporated into nine models, is to liberate the platter, arm and motor from the resonance-laden, box-like base which housed most turntables in the past. Using low torque motors and materials that work wonderfully well together, Nottingham Analogue Studio creates a range of turntables not only pleasing to the eye but (and more importantly) to the ear.
The Nottingham Analogue unipivot tonearms are, obviously, designed with our turntables in mind, lightweight yet robust they allow the stylus to do its job with the minimum of interference.
This turntable comes with our Interspace tonearm. Built onto a 50mm ‘ingot’ style chassis it has a 27mm alloy platter with a black acetal bearing which contains two internal bushes, this aids with the bearing oil circulation and adds stability, creating a lovely smooth running platter. Textured black finish ( colour options and / or gloss finish at extra cost ).
This turntable also comes with our Interspace tonearm. A conventional style turntable the components are built onto the 50mm plinth. It has a 37mm alloy platter with our classic bronze bearing. Textured black finish (colour options and/or gloss finish at extra cost).
One of our most popular turntables. The 37mm platter is mounted onto its own chassis and runs on our classic bronze bearing. The motor/pulley assembly is mounted in its own housing which sits separately from the turntable chassis, the only connection is the drive belt, this helps to avoid audio resonances being transferred through the chassis of the turntable. Upgrade options available are: Second arm mount for left side, HD (heavy duty) upgrade kit comprising of the 25mm graphite ‘mat’. High gloss black finish (colour options at extra cost).
Looks exactly like the Spacedeck but has a few hidden extra features. The bronze bearing has the carbide/bushed type internal workings, the motor housing and armbase are manufactured from a heavy dense steel. All these features add greater stability to the turntable. Upgrade and colour options are the same as for the Spacedeck.
This turntable has a 58mm alloy platter with a 25mm graphite ‘mat’ and is mounted on its own chassis. The smooth running carbide / bushed bronze bearing allows the bearing oil to keep a constant, even flow around the spindle shaft. The motor housing is divorced from the chassis, (as the Spacedeck) and can accommodate a second tonearm if required. High gloss black finish (colour options at extra cost).
This lovely turntable has been designed to accommodate 12” tonearms only. Based along the same lines as the Ace Spacedeck turntable, it has a 14” diameter alloy platter which allows the resonances to disperse efficiently and give a wonderful open sound. The turntable can be upgraded with the 14” HD (heavy duty) upgrade kit and has a second tonearm option if required. High gloss black finish (colour options available at extra cost).
One of our bestselling turntables, the Dais has a 20+ kg gravity spun cast iron platter topped with the graphite ‘mat’. The bronze bearing has the carbide/thrust design which allows the continuous flow of bearing oil between the spindle shaft and bearing, this, along with the special grade stainless steel spindle housing give great stability and is a wonderful platform for the vinyl record. Can accommodate up to two tonearms (9”, 10” or 12”). The Dais comes as standard with its own power supply. Platter colour, black or silver, base colour black gloss. (Colour options available at extra cost).
One of our favourite turntables. The lovely wooden chassis (or ‘log’) is made from either Sapele or aged Oak. Each ‘log’ is made by joining sections of the timber in a rotational fashion allowing the audio frequencies to disperse away from the platter, once the ‘log’ is machined and dressed it is allowed to season, only then is it ready to be made into the ‘AnnaLog’. The platter, bearing and spindle assembly is the same as on the Dais turntable and also comes as standard with its own power supply. The AnnaLog can accommodate two tonearms if required. Black gloss finish for the platter and base with colour options available at extra cost.
