NAMM 2016: Akai Professional Hails Record Achievement with BT-500 Turntable

Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of music production equipment, today announced the introduction of its one-of-a-kind BT-500 audiophile belt-drive turntable.

The Akai BT-500 Turntable offers record enthusiasts a unit that combines no-compromise audiophile performance with luxurious, elegant styling and modern features such as A-to-D LP conversion capability and wireless Bluetooth streaming.

The BT-500 also boasts the ability to convert analogue records into digital files with its included on-board software and USB port for quick connection to any computer. With a built-in switchable phono pre-amp, it can be used with a traditional stereo or connected directly to powered speakers.

Responding to the rapidly growing demand for high-performance turntables in the resurgent vinyl market, its basic turntable performance is beyond reproach. It has a quiet belt-drive system with a mechanically-isolated motor that eliminated any residual motor noise and vibration, a heavy die-cast aluminium platter that ensures an exemplary signal-to-noise ratio, a drive system with vanishingly low wow and flutter and a low-mass straight tonearm with precision damped cueing.

Offering a unique combination of modern digital technology and convenience features, the BT-500 is truly a one-of-a-kind - a record achievement by Akai Professional.

"We're very excited about the BT-500 turntable and its absolutely unique combination of amazing analogue performance and modern digital technology," "This is a turntable like no other - a traditional audiophile's dream coupled with incredible cutting-edge digital capability and convenience, all in one unit." - Dan Gill, Product Manager for Akai Professional.
