Cambridge Audio has unveiled the new Alva TT Direct Drive Turntable ($1,700). The turntable will be available from April 2019.
Alva TT is the first turntable in the world to offer aptX HD Bluetooth, and liberates your record player from the hi-fi rack. Your music can be streamed from Alva TT to any Bluetooth receiver at up to 24bit/48kHz Hi-Res, which means you’re guaranteed an authentic vinyl experience, wherever it’s placed.
Alva TT’s custom designed, integrated phonostage simplifies process of a physical connection – removing the need for extra boxes in your set-up. This phonostage builds on the success of our award-winning, 5-star standalone pre-amplifiers, the Alva Solo and Alva Duo, reducing unwanted noise while preserving the characteristic warmth of your vinyl.
Rather than go for a Belt Drive system with the ALVA TT, Cambridge Audio opted for a medium-torque Direct Drive. It also has a built-in phono stage, a single-piece tone-arm, and a high output MC cartridge that comes pre-installed.
