Check out Mobile Fidelity Electronics’ Line of Turntables
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, also known as MoFi™, is long known among record collectors for its extremely high fidelity analog remastering and limited-edition record reissues. The independently owned and operated imprint now offers its own line of turntables, cartridges, and phono preamps under the Mobile Fidelity Electronics name to eager and loyal fans of the brand, which produces coveted Original Master Recordings™ on vinyl and SACD—including transformative albums from iconic artists such as Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, Dire Straits, Santana, Janis Joplin, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin, and many more.
They are available in two turntables, the StudioDeck ($999) and UltraDeck ($1,799), which both feature technology typically reserved for much more expensive turntables, using extremely high quality components in collaboration with multiple legendary analog hardware designers, including Delrin —a material very similar to vinyl— for it’s platters, isolated motors, anti-vibration feet from Harmonic Resolution Systems, and custom-designed tonearms from Allen Perkins of Spiral Groove.
Each turntable can be equipped with a custom designed StudioTracker, UltraTracker, or MasterTracker cartridge, each of which was also designed in partnership with Allen Perkins. Each line of Japan-built cartridge follows the same twin-magnet layout as the cutting head in a record lathe, allowing near-perfect accuracy in playback from what would have been heard in the mastering studio. The dual magnets also mean that stereo separation should be extremely good when listening via any of the cartridges.
Each turntable can be equipped with a custom designed StudioTracker MM ($199), UltraTracker MM ($499), and MasterTracker MM ($699)- each of which was also designed in partnership with Allen Perkins that utilize two powerful lightweight magnets precisely aligned with the left and right channels in the stereo groove. This topology mirrors the layout of a cutter head used to make a record’s master lacquer and offers increased channel separation, higher resolution, and excellent tracking.
The phono preamps, StudioPhono ($299) and UltraPhono ($499)were designed by engineer Tim De Paravicini, and have modes for selectable gain, switchable mono mode, and a subsonic filter. UltraPhono includes a powerful, built-in Class-A headphone amplifier for experiencing vinyl records through headphones.
