  • Shinola • Runwell Turntable

    ". . . a well-designed, massively built, great-sounding, striking-looking plug-'n'-play ‘table"

    Guy Lemcoe offers his review of the Shinola Runwell Turntable at The Audio Beat

    Interesting to read of VPI's involvement as it looks like a Clearaudio.
    Dynavector DV20x2L MC cartridge - Genesis G7.1f speakers - Marantz Reference PM-KI-Pearl Int. Amp. - Oracle Audio Paris MkV turntable - Various Morrow & Valab/King cables

      It's actually based to a large extent on the now discontinued Classic turntable.

      I always liked the look of that VPI Classic table.

      To me it looks like a cross between the Classic, with the phonostage and arm like the "Player" table

    I can see the appeal of a higher end "lifestyle" plug and play turntable, but I think that not being able to bypass the built in phono preamp thus preventing use of many MI and MC cartridges might limit its appeal to those seeking future flexibility.

    That said I think it is a very good marketing decision to reach a market segment that might not otherwise seek out a better than plastic table.

      You would be shocked how many people who want to get into analog-including even some well known musicians-don't want to hassle with outboard phonostages. Plus I doubt people buying the Shinola are interested in another cartridge.

      Techically the phonostage could be bypassed. All you would need to do is buy a junction box, attach it to the back of table and then run a phono cable out to an outboard phonostage.

        Or they could have out in a bypass switch too which wouldn't require a customer to do anything, just sayin'.
