Making sound since 1938 design has always been at the heart of Elipson. From classics such as the BS50, Elipson has been synonymous with spherical speakers, but more importantly the focus has always been on exceptional sound reproduction.
This short video explains the thought process into how new products are developed including the exciting turntable range – available in the UK exclusively through Avoke.
Elipson launched a new range of turntables for 2017. We demonstrated the top of the range model, the Omega 100 RIAA BT at the Bristol Sound & Vision Show in 2017 to great acclaim, and we have seen award after award given to this model, culminating the Which? Best Buy Award in 2018. As you will see from the picture below Elipson has retained it’s design heritage with a spherical shapes, including on a patented tone arm.
One of the many wonderful features of the Elipson turntable range is the ease of set-up. Simply take the turntable out of the box and follow the simple video (link below) – then you’re ready to go – no fiddling with anti-skate weights, no measuring, just add the belt, put on your favourite vinyl and enjoy!

There are three variants – 100, 100 RIAA and 100 RIAA BT.
The Alpha 100 turntable has a PVC chassis with a black matt finish and the pressed steel plate is covered with a felt to gently accomodate the record. The automatic speed control allows you to switch between 33 and 45 rpm ensuring a constant speed. The motor is sustained to prevent any vibration in the turntable, the tonearm or the cartridge. The aluminium OTT tonearm developed by Elipson is equipped with Ortofon OM10 cartridge and anti-skating. It has a very low friction for precise tracking.
The RIAA is equipped with an MM/MC phono pre-amp and the RIAA BT enjoys a Bluetooth aptX transmitter and Opto-isolated USB output allowing vinyl recording through a Mac or laptop.
There are five variants – 100, 100 RIAA, 100 RIAA BT, 100 Carbon and 100 RIAA BT Carbon.
The Omega differs from the Alpha range with its PMMA chassis, in black, white, red lacquer and new carbon finish. The tonearm is upgraded to carbon allowing for better stiffness and less resonance.
The Bluetooth feature really does allow you to send your vinyl to a linked Bluetooth speaker upto 10m away. This flexible feature enables you to place the turntable where it suits you.
The new Carbon models feature an OTT tonearm developed by Elipson and come with a Ortofon 2M Red cartridge and anti-skating allowing a better stiffness and less resonance.
