Edwards Audio TT1SE Turntable
The Special Edition TT1 turntable from Edwards Audio is a substantial evolution from the original, and highly reviewed, original TT1. The SE features various changes to raise performance and cosmetics to an even higher level. To start with there’s a more rigid 18mm thick plinth which is beautifully finished with high gloss paint. The platter is made from turned frosted acrylic that’s 18mm thick, with a label recess and flywheel lip to concentrate the mass towards it’s outside edge. The Blue Little Belter drive belt is included which spins the platter upon a the ceramic ball bearing. The TA202 tonearm is included, which is a rigid one piece Rega derived design of very high performance. It is available without cartridge or with a choice of cartridges, please see pricing below.
Sonically the TT1SE is incredibly impressive. It has a clean, taut and purposeful sound, with good bass weight and excellent timing. Colouration is also impressively low for a deck at this price level, evidently thanks to the carefully chosen materials used in its construction.
There’s a great sense of fun to the sound of the TT1SE, the music really drives along when required, yet is subtle and delicate when it needs to be. We can highly recommend it, for the price it offers superb performance and the sharp looks are the icing on the cake.
