Let’s skip the tired cliché about a so-called vinyl revival: to those that care, it has never really gone away. Nonetheless, there’s been no shortage of new tables turning heads – and first pressings – so far this year, from the much-hyped Technics Grand Class SL-1200GAE, to Sony’s hi-res-ready PS-HX500. Adding its name to the growing list is Fern & Roby’s weighty reference model, The Turntable. Comprising a 32kg cast iron plinth and 16kg bronze platter, this stunning deck is capped off with a bespoke Schröder Reference SQ tone arm and Soundsmith cartridge.
