Miniot make exquisite wooden iPhone cases, but having smashed their Kickstarter target with the Wheel, they’re on the verge of rewriting the rules on turntable design. By inverting the tonearm and cartridge, and hiding them inside the plinth, they have created one of the most elegant turntables Brogue has ever seen. Mount horizontally or vertically, all the functions are controlled by the centre spindle. Turn for On/off, play/pause, skip, even control the volume of the headphone port. Wheel’s linear tonearm is built around the AudioTechnica AT95E cartridge, the arm itself is machined out of a single piece of laminated mahogany and the heavy aluminium platter is driven by an electronically stabilised belt drive.
