The Akai Professional BT500 is an exquisitely crafted, elegant instrument whose performance is complimented by its luxurious walnut finish and brushed aluminum controls. With all the must-have features audiophiles demand for top-flight musical reproduction, the BT500 is also enabled with Bluetooth connectivity so you can stream your vinyl to any external Bluetooth-enabled speaker. Another convenient feature is its ability to convert your vinyl to digital using the included software and USB port.
For audio purists who prefer uncompressed sound, the BT500 boasts a built-in switchable phono preamp so you can use it with a traditional home stereo system or connect it directly to powered speakers.
Vinyl aficionados will appreciate the BT500’s quiet belt-drive system and mechanically isolated motor, which eliminates any residual motor noise and vibration. The heavy, die-cast aluminum platter ensures an exemplary signal-to-noise ratio, while the low-mass straight tonearm with adjustable counterweight lets you dial in the precise amount of tracking weight. The BT500 also features an Audio-Technica magnetic cartridge with elliptical stylus, which is mounted to a removable headshell. A leveling bubble and adjustable feet give you the ability to zero in on a perfectly level needle drop for optimal sound.
