The whole idea with our Inception Hi-Fi systems is (1) to deliver high quality sound, (2) use top quality products from the world's best brands & (3) do this at prices that stretch your dollar to the maximum. Our Inception 100.1 system is designed for the listener who wants to concentrate on vinyl but may already own a CD player or other source components. Although we have chosen quality items from top brands the system price is truly affordable for almost all music lovers.
Mechanical engineering is the key to building a good turntable. Pro-Ject pay close attention to the construction quality of all their turntables & the Essential II is a great introduction to the joys of record playing. Cambridge Audio is typically British in it's approach to design with an understated style that has lashings of stiff upper lip and a cultured sound to match. That Cambridge can make products sound this good for this little money is a testament to their integrity & talent.
Together this system punches way above it's weight in class and sound quality. Enjoy.
