TIMESTEP EVOKE SL-1200GAE TURNTABLE

Timestep of the UK (Sound Hi-Fi) recently introduced an upgraded version of Technics new SL-1200GAE Direct Drive turntable. They've removed the Technics arm and replaced it with an SME IV – as you can see in our picture here –  and they've also junked the unscreened internal switch-mode power supply, replacing it with an exetrnal linear supply. As a package it comes fitted with the Audio Technica AT33PTG/II moving coil cartridge (reviewed Sept 16 issue). Here's a specialist and technical view of the Timetsep EVOke upgrade, with measurement that reveals cogging and other Direct Drive turntable issues.

ENTOTEM PLATO

Here's a digital streamer that plays LP! Well, OK – Entotem's Plato records LP onto its hard drive then plays it, so you need a turntable, with MM or MC cartridge. Then it not only stores and  plays LP, it also identifies it automatically – from internet lookup at Gracenote – retrieving and displaying cover artwork! 

Add in hi-res digital playback from 2TB of on-board hard disc storage as well as optional 45W power amplifier and you have one amazing new all-in-one "music centre" – to use an old term. This is a super-new hi-res variety though.
