Analogue Alchemy Gloria Turntable




























Gloria - is even more superior turntable in our range of all-UK hand-built turntables, that is, again, a sophisticated, non-suspended record playing system. It has a unique construction and it is the biggest in our turntable range. As all of our turntables, Gloria has three stages, which are lined up as follows:

Stage ONE is a single 20 mm high translucent or black hand polished acrylic TT base (other colours available on a special order), with a 40mm high frosted acrylic platter, high precision bearing, large solid steel and aluminium adjustable feet and shoes, supplied with an adjustable aluminium tonearm plate of your choice. All system is sitting on a matching 20mm acrylic isolation platform with aluminium / steel feet and shoes and fitted bubble level. The isolation platform comes together with the turntable as an integrated part of the system, or can be obtained separately.


Stage TWO is a 40mm high single (TWO - S40) or a 20mm high dual base, separated by 20 mm high aluminium spacers (TWO - D20), translucent or black acrylic base (other colours available on a special order), with a 40mm high frosted acrylic platter, high precision bearing, large cylindrical solid aluminium and steel feet and shoes, with an adjustable aluminium tonearm plate of your choice. All system is sitting on a matching 20mm acrylic isolation platform with aluminium / steel feet and shoes and fitted bubble level. The isolation platform comes together with the turntable as an integrated part of the system, or can be obtained separately.

Stage THREE is a 40mm high single (THREE – S40) or a 20mm high dual base, separated by 20mm mm high aluminium spacers (THREE –D20), translucent or black acrylic base (other colours available on a special order), with a 60mm high frosted acrylic platter, high precision bearing, large cylindrical solid aluminium and steel feet and shoes, with sandwiched aluminium adjustable tonearm plate with aluminium semi-cylindrical spacers to bring the armplate to required height. All system, including standalone motor, is sitting on a matching 20mm acrylic isolation platform with aluminium / steel feet and shoes and fitted with a handy bubble level. The isolation platform comes together with the turntable as an integrated part of the system, or can be obtained separately.

Beautifully designed and striking looking GLORIA turntable can be obtained with two standalone 100mm diameter motor options: Stage I comes with a standard AC Motor, with speed adjusted by changing the belt position on the pulley. Stages II and III come with an advanced DC motor with separated electronic fine speed adjustments for 33 1/3 and 45 RPM. Any of three stages are very flexible and can take up to 4 arms: two of almost any arm – 9”, 10.5” or 12” arms, and two of up to 14” arms, if desired, with a special solid aluminium armboard of your choice, also used on our other models.
