"A big step up from the Elemental, this turntable delivers better sound as well as having a full sized base. It comes with an Ortofon OM5e cartridge so all you'll need is an amplifier with a phono stage (or a separate phono stage).

There's also an Elemental deck with a built in phono stage if you need it - check out our links below."
