301 Turntable Player System


Description ▴

301 Player System from Shindo Labs uses a damped integral mat. The Shindo platter is 20mm larger than the stock unit, and about 3lb heavier. The Shindo bearing is higher mass, has a larger diameter and is machined to much tighter tolerances than the stock unit. It also uses a special oil. The Shindo plinth system uses layers of laminated hardwood glued together and lacquered by 6th generation master carpenters.

There are no voids left under the table and literally the plinth fits the Garrard like a glove. Not only beautiful to look at but offers the highest performance. A must for every Garrard 301. The Ortofon SPU is a classic design dating back to the mid 1950’s, considered one of the finest cartridges in the world due to it’s amazing musicality and direct sweet sound. Shindo takes the Ortofon SPU and does some proprietary modifications to the damper, coil, suspension and cantilever. This makes the classic SPU sound more refined, extended and resolute.
