Analogue on Purpose
TT-2 Optical is a well-built record player if there ever was one. The needle, the pick-up, the plate – they’re all made from high-end parts that you’d usually only find on way more expensive models. The base is heavy, meaning your records won’t slide around damaging the needle and your precious ears.
TT-2 Optical comes pre-mounted with an Ortofon OM5e MM-pickup. This one even has the RIAA amp built in - so you can plug it directly into your amp or your active speakers! As the name of this record player suggests, we've added a optical output alongside the regular analog output, meaning plug and play with just about anything, even your soundbar!
The Charm of Vinyl
Yes, your grandpa probably refers to the times of old with a bit too much enthusiasm. But if there’s one thing his generation did nail, it’s their choice of physical media. CD’s, cassette tapes, weird torrented MP3-files with a guy blow drying his hair in the background – they all came and went – vinyl stayed.
That’s because there’s a charm to the ridiculously large discs, the detailed placement of the needle, and the lack of an all-knowing playlist AI shuffling your music, that you just can’t find anywhere else today. Investing in a record player really is investing in your music experiences.
Wallet Friendly Design
We’ve done everything in our power to keep the production costs down on TT-2. There are no fancy design choices, and that’s entirely on purpose. The matte finish stands out on its own and sends an important statement to the rest of the room, that you’re the guy with a record player. If you want a few extras, we’ve got an array of accesories for you to customize and pimp your TT-2 with.
Contrary to our regular TT-2 record player, TT-2 Optical is made with an optical out so you can connect it to an optical in on your amp or on your speakers. The TT-2 Optical also has a regular line out, for plug and play into any analogue input.
To RIAA or not to RIAA?
The TT-2 has a true minimalist approach to turntable design. Everything present is there to ensure a long lasting and high performing turntable. The TT-2 does not have a built in RIAA/phono stage, meaning you need to check your speakers or amp for such an input. Our very own ALTO Active, FORTE Active and SA1 amp all have built in RIAA for easy connection.
If your equipment doesn't have this input, the TT-2 Optical is the turntable for you instead, featuring easy plug and play to just about anything.
