For Vinyl Lovers. And We Mean Lovers.
Two days ago, the Beatles celebrated their 50-year anniversary of performing on the “Ed Sullivan Show” where they changed the face of music forever. If you’re anything like us, that means you’ve been giving your Beatles Stereo Vinyl Box Set quite the workout. Give that sweet vinyl the tender love it deserves with the McIntosh MT5 Turntable ($6,500). Engineered with the ridiculous level of quality you’d expect from a McIntosh, every piece of the MT5 precision turntable ladders up to one thing: superb performance. First, there’s the high performance platter and motor drive assembly, coupled with a precision tone arm and high output moving coil cartridge that also happens to be compatible with moving magnet inputs.
The coolest part? The platter is magnetically suspended, and gives off a fresh green glow that adds even more ambiance to your room, in addition to all the sweet music it’s kicking out. The magnetic platter, along with a precise belt drive motor ensure that your records are spun with absolute stability and quiet, for a perfect listening experience. Oh, and speaking of perfect playback, let’s not forget the tracking force, anti-skate force, cartridge overhang and arm height, which are all factory adjusted and preset for maximum performance. If this is all starting to sound complicated, fret not—the setup is as simple as the Beatles’ guitar chords—did you know there are 21 Beatles songs that use the same three chords—A, D, and E? Of course you did. Enjoy.
