Lenco has released its new LBT-345WA Bluetooth turntable, designed for individuals looking at purchasing their first turntable, engineered with input and components from Pro-Ject and Ortofon.

It’s been claimed that very few Bluetooth loudspeakers come with a good internal MM phono section, and this new Lenco device comes with the ability to disable it.

Using an external phono stage will reportedly provide a better listening experience, should the user choose to upgrade from the pre-installed Ortofon 2M Red cartridge to the 2M Blue or Goldring E4.

The built in switchable phono stage does allow any active speaker to be used, and the Bluetooth connection allows for Bluetooth speakers or headphones to be used wirelessly.

The turntable comes with a Chrome plated Record Stabiliser. This can be placed on the centre of the platter, and lightly presses on the record, ensuring even contact.

It also reduces unwanted vibrations, and delivers a stable rotation for accurate and balanced sound reproduction.

The turntable is available in a gloss walnut colour, and features a USB output for vinyl to digital conversion, as well as a felt slip-mat, and a detachable dust cover.
