No Turning Away the McIntosh MT10

No Turning Away
McIntosh releases it's first turntable after six decades in the audio business, the MT10’s specs match its style.

Witness its belt-driven 12-pound platter, machined from a special silicone acrylic. The 2.5-inch thick, backlit platter rotates on a magnetic bearing that literally suspends it on a friction-free cushion of air.
A damped Dural aluminum tone arm rides on a sapphire and ceramic bearing and is pre-set for tracking force, anti-skate and cartridge alignment. Finally, a mirror-finish chassis and fiber optic-illuminated glass front panel — sporting the renowned McIntosh logo and trademark analog meter (this one indicates platter rotation speed) — helps ensure that the MT10’s form complements its function.
PRICE: $9,500
