Musical Fidelity’s latest Roundtable S is a new venture into
the world of turntables. This is a high quality competitively priced complete
solution. It has a high-quality low resonance 9” pickup arm (magnetic
anti-skating) with steel tipped vertical bearings housed in zirconium with
rubber damping, not dissimilar in principle to the Incabloc shock protection
system on watches. The horizontal bearings are ABEC7 ball bearings. It is
fitted with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.


Musical Fidelity has a long heritage of designing
exceptional turntables and the Roundtable S is no exception:

Top spec components include: a polished high carbon tool
steel bearing – for an exceptional long life and friction free performance – an
extremely inert chassis and suspension system and a very high-quality pick-up
arm, usually used on products several price categories higher.

The platter is made from finely machined high density MDF
and has high mass and low resonance. The plinth is made from similar bulky low
resonance material. The feet are also part of the isolation system. The
Roundtable S offers a stable low resonance platform for vinyl disc playing.

The very high-quality pickup arm is matched with a well-regarded
cartridge which complements the arm’s characteristics exceptionally well. The
turntable system itself has excellent isolation properties, low resonance, high
stability and consistency. The motor, belt and main platter bearing are all
selected for complimentary characteristics.
