A glance at the new Pre Audio GL-1102N.
Polish turntable gurus Pre Audio have unveiled a flashy new turntable with an LED lit platter. Boasting a granite sub-chassis, the Pre Audio GL-1102N is a hefty 60kg beast, so bring out your sturdiest table.
Designed by Daniel Prendecki, the direct-drive deck features a parallel tracking arm – which, arguably, will reduce distortion and provide a more accurate reading compared with a laterally-tracking curved arm.
A turntable of this calibre won’t come cheap (£4700) but will reward sonically. Ogle at photos in the gallery and scroll down for technical bits.
