Launched earlier this year, the new ON turntable boasts the full gamut of sound sources, from analogue and digital to wireless and bluetooth streaming. It claims to be the first plug-and-play deck of its kind of manage the lot, as well as USB compatibility for connecting to a computer.

That said, the G Pinto ON also flirts with the higher end of the home audio spectrum, with a built-in, exposed valve pre-amplifier and dedicated power supply from 100 up to 500 Watts RMS.
