INGENIUM PLUG&PLAY

Since its introduction in 2013, the Ingenium has been winning awards globally and become the benchmark for entry level audiophile players. With the increased popularity of vinyl, especially with novice customers and younger enthusiasts, in 2018 we raised the bar yet again of this popular design.

Ingenium Plug&Play builds on its predecessor, retaining many features, making some aesthetic improvements and a more straightforward installation. Complete with quality fitted tonearm and cartridge, it is ready to use within ten minutes…. really Plug&Play

“Product of the Year in the Turntable category”
– Jeff Dorgay

KEY FEATURES

  • Sapphire Jewell Bearing
  • Vibration Transfer Clamp
  • Solid Aluminium Chassis
  • Sorbothane Isolation Feet
  • Aluminium Platter Upgrade

ENGINEERED QUALITY

Sharing the same design philosophy and features from our more expensive designs, Ingenium Plug&Play has true audiophile credentials and an engineered quality.

Our unique sapphire bearing and clamping system, which efficiently channels unwanted vibrations away from the record to the chassis, reduces the background noise of the record itself, so there is clarity to the music, the performance not vailed but vivid and transparent.

“For a plug and play turntable this was a stonker of a machine”
– Janine Elliot

REASSURINGLY AVID

Isolating the turntable is critical to maintain low coloration and we have employed the same optimised elastomer used in our Diva range, giving excellent mechanical isolation of the playing surface, resulting in better information retrieval and resolution.

Ingenium Plug&Play opens the door to quality audiophile reproduction, without the feeling its “just another record player”.  It’s reassuringly an AVID record player at an affordable price.

“Fantastic combination of rhythmic precision and sheer musical energy”
-Ed Selley
