Smooth Drive, Retro Style

Rediscover the magic of analog sound with the Onkyo CP-1050, a direct-drive turntable with a customized brushless DC motor, a 12-inch die-cast aluminum platter, and a handsome retro aesthetic that looks like it was pulled right out of the ‘70s. Along with the low-noise motor and rubber slip mat, the cabinet’s thick MDF construction helps reduce vibration, while the quartz-lock control system makes for a highly precise turning speed. The result is smooth, stable rotation, whether you’re playing 33s or 45s—and the included adapter lets you pull out your 7-inch records, too.

Construction & Connections

At the business end of the static-balanced, S-shaped aluminum tonearm is a detachable headshell that supports a range of aftermarket cartridges. On the rear panel, you’ll find two gold-plated pin-type RCA phono terminals for connecting your external preamp, stereo amplifier, or AV receiver. The sturdy, reliable craftsmanship is just what you’d expect from Onkyo, a company that created its first crystal turntable pickup for the CP-1000 back in 1946. Every aspect of the design has been engineered to deliver audio performance well beyond its price.
