E-Line Turntables

The Elemental Phono USB turntable was introduced to give vinyl enthusiasts on a budget a viable alternative to cheap, plastic turntables that damage your records. The Elemental Phono USB is a real "Plug & Play" turntable, with no tricky adjustments required - simply install the belt, plug it in, and enjoy your records. Though it seems effortlessly simple, the use of high-quality audio principles ensures the Elemental still sounds superb for the price.

The straight, ultra-low-mass tonearm is optimised for the pre-installed Ortofon OM 5E hi-fi cartridge, which means you don't need to do any counterweight or anti-skate adjustments at all.

The hidden secret behind the Elemental Phono USB's audio superiority is its central gravity mass-point, which is made from artificial stone and placed directly underneath the platter bearing. This design feature fully absorbs the unwanted vibrations from the main bearing and the motor.

The Elemental Phono USB is even more convenient thanks to its built-in high-quality MM phono stage. This allows for simple connection to any audio system that has a free LINE or AUX input available. The addition of a USB output, also means you can now record your vinyl to a computer in high-quality.

  • Belt drive system with low-vibration DC motor
  • Central gravity mass point made from artificial stone

FAQ

Can I play my turntable through my computer/laptop using USB without recording?

To play records in Audacity without recording, make sure 'software playthrough' is enabled in the Transport menu, then right click the right-hand recording VU meter with the microphone symbol, which turns on "monitoring". Click in the meter again if you want to turn monitoring off.
