The M500

Advanced Manual Sub-Chassis Turntable


As the first manual REKKORD turntable in our M series, we set the bar very high with the REKKORD M500. The aim was to develop a manual turntable based on the technically high-quality REKKORD tonearms, which combines a heavy basic chassis with a floating sub-chassis in a modern design. Despite the slim design, the basic chassis has the necessary mass to dampen any kind of impact noise and vibration from the outside. The aluminum-covered sub-chassis is floating on four special parabolic springs and is therefore decoupled from the rest of the chassis. This ensures an additional minimization of external interference. Three specially buffered aluminum feet in combination with the cardan tonearm mounting make time-consuming leveling of the turntable unnecessary. Of course, the high-precision anti-skating and tracking force settings of our fully automatic machines are also used here. A problem-free and uncomplicated installation is therefore always guaranteed. The M500 is not only convincing on the outside. The M500 is available with and without the high quality Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge which reproduces every detail in the recordings. Voices and instruments sound even more natural than before. Cables, dust cover and a single adapter comes supplied with the turntable.


Available with pre-adjusted Ortofon 2M Blue

The 2M Blue is an audiophile MM cartridge that delivers a wide but detailed soundstage with an overwhelming clarity.

8,3'' weight-balanced tonearm

Ultra low mass (ULM) aluminium tonearm with cardan bearing from our own production.

Damped aluminum platter

The solid aluminium platter has a damping ring on the inside that helps to dampen all resonances and minimizes wow and flutter.

Massless tracking force

Massless tracking force adjustment which optimizes the center of gravity directly at the bearing center.

Floating sub-chassis

The platter and the tonearm are decoupled from the rest of the chassis by the sub-chassis system.

Heavy MDF chassis

The main chassis is made out of a single piece of MDF which has an ideal resonance-dampening basic character.
