Marantz TT-15S1 Turntable Demo

hi this is Kevin deal from upscale honey
and today we’re going to talk about I’m
wearing my Ducati t-shirt and that gets
me always pumped up even though it’s
winter time right now and I can’t even
ride cuz it’s not very good gets me all
excited thinking about precision and
Italian motorcycles and all of that
stuff it’s not that oh my god I got to
do something about Precision’s and
that’s what we’re gonna do we’re going
to talk about the marantz TT 15 s1
turntable but before we talk about this
turntable I got inspired by this I got
inspired because when I saw it and I
said how much is it I said oh my god
this thing is so beautiful
well it doesn’t come with a dust cover
okay well let’s see how much is the dust
cover it’s what you know there’s a
couple of manufacturers that make them I
go oh what’s that one it’s $250 what
does it look like
looks like ass it looks horrible and
that’s not another manufacturer and it
looked a little bit better but it was
kind of expensive I go you know what
I’ve had it with these ugly dust covers
I went through the best fabricator in
Los Angeles the best these guys make
parts I’ve seen when I went there they
had a lotus sitting out front uh so
what’s with the Lotus oh we’re making a
special thing for their Sun rific oh my
god that’s what I’m talking about
who else do you make things for oh we
make things for the Getty Museum and we
make things for this most miss
Smithsonian we make things that go into
museums and I said that’s it our new
brand of dust covers is called perfect
view museum quality dust covers what
does that mean I hate it when these
things just look like cheap plastic and
they charge you so much money I want
something that’s gonna look like glass
so this is a prototype almost done and I
want to tell you what makes it different
it’s 8th inch acrylic but what they do
is on the edges they put what’s called a
museum finish that means it’s highly
highly polished and by doing so it just
looks that much better plus when they
glue the edges air cannot get in
and it’s not gonna be fog become foggy
with time and it’s gonna age better and
it’s gonna look like glass and so why is
it I don’t have it ready for you today
because I found out about another
material that costs 25 percent more but
I’m gonna do it anyway and it is called
green edge what does that mean
the acrylic when you look at it from the
sides it has a green edge to it so it
makes the acrylic look like the dust
cover has actually been made out of
glass that has been glued together how
much more is it 25% I said I don’t care
that’s what I would use on my turntable
that’s what I want and that’s what I
want for you guys so for people that buy
their Marantz turntables from us look at
the website you’re gonna see how much it
is because I’m gonna make it the same
price or less for customers that buy
their turntables from us because I’m on
your side and I don’t want you to get
something that is so beautiful and then
dumb it down with a cheap desk cover so
that’s what I’m talking about and it’s
gonna tell you when we have them already
on the website we’ll give you all the
information there but I am so excited
about this because I’ve been bummed out
every time I see some other ones that
customers are using so what makes this
turntable so bitchin listen I don’t
subscribe to clear audio good music halt
bad project good VP of it I don’t
subscribe to that as you go up and down
in the turntable realm on our website
you have to think about the package
think about the package and more
specifically think about the cartridges
that are giving you the cartridge is the
transducer as important as the tonearm
is and the plants and the platter and
all of that the cartridge is really what
you are listening to so if you buy a
$1500 turntable and it’s got a $99
cartridge on it it’s a $99 turntable
that’s all there is to it
so what’s happening here they are using
the clear audio virtuosa wood cartridge
and depending on where you look it’s
between a thousand and eleven hundred
dollars for that cartridge that’s what
I’m talking about
it’s an elliptical diamond moving magnet
it sounds amazing it’s open and it’s
fast and now you don’t have to worry
about buying something and then having
to upgrade the cartridge later
so three point eight millivolts out
it’ll work with any photo stage that we
sell it’s going to go into the moving
magnet input and you are going to be
rocking the tonearm is the satisfied
black tone arm made in Germany by clear
audio it uses the magnetic anti-skate
which works so so beautifully and it is
German German precision
now speaking of precision let’s talk
about this motor it’s an AC motor which
means that it is cog less belt drive the
motor is completely isolated from the
plinth because it is detached I’m gonna
say something to you don’t forget now
whenever you start your turntable when
you’re turning on the motor first you
want to turn the platter a little bit
then flip the motor on that will extend
the life of the belt and it’s good for
the motor because you’re not putting
extra stress on everything else okay the
platter is really super cool to look at
this I mean I hope you have the overhead
shot here mr. 420 do you mr. 420 are you
there okay I thought maybe he was
sleeping again today so look at that I
mean look at this a crow I mean it is
absolutely stunning so really really
super nice plants amazing feat by the
way look at how heavy these feet are and
how big they are and massive that’s what
I’m talking about to get proper
isolation I mean you feel like you’ve
got something for your money here I love
that for you guys I mean I don’t like it
when people will overpay for tchotchke I
mean this thing is so so so bitching the
cartridge I’m telling you I know that
cartridge because I’ve heard it and I
put it on a lot of other turntables and
it is an absolute joy
$14.99 then go to our website look at
the drop-down see what you get it for
with the dust cover now you’re gonna
have a complete package the
is absolutely something that is worth
owning oh and it also comes with the
souther Clement clever clamp you know it
doesn’t look like much to be honest but
it is very very functional it is just a
piece of plastic but that’s why they
call it clever because of its
functionality and it can be very very
helpful if you have some warped records
is that the sexiest thing in the world
no I don’t think that it is is it
functional
absolutely and who cares I mean you can
spend more money on another one later
so listen go to our website none of our
sales people want Commission I want to
see one more thing to you is there any
downside to the student table no I will
have to say that the little oh my god I
forget the name of the little thing over
the spindle sometimes these have been
out of adjustment we can check them for
you but we will kind of go over it with
you I have dedicated analog experts here
that are world class and so there it’s
held on with three set screws and if it
gets a little wonky and shipment we can
show you what to do to just make sure
it’s nice and stable so you know that’s
part of buying from upscale audio is
that we will follow up with you after
the sale and make sure that everything’s
perfect if you want us to check a lime
if you want listen I mean it’s about
attention to detail that’s why we sell
more turntables than anybody in the
country now right I mean we’re just
rocking it in this world
go to our website call Mona my
non-commissioned salespeople I promise
you I’m gonna treat this like it’s my
own turntable that’s the way I want to
work for you guys
Thanks

Marantz TT-15S1 Turntable Review

If you are looking for a new clearaudio cartridge, the Marantz TT-15S1 turntable is the model to choose from. This is the newest model in the series and comes with an all new belt design that incorporates the Speed control section and a new exclusive technology known as Auto Roll Control. This innovative new technology allows the tonearm to have a much smoother roll as well as a more fluid action in the grooves of the vinyl which means that you will not get any scratching or skipping while using this great sounding system.

The Marantz TT-15S1 turntable comes with all the great features of the rest of their lineup. It comes with two large (14-inch) tonearms that are extremely accurate and smooth as well as having a light that glows green when it is powered on. Other great features include a lighted control screen, anti-skid feet that are designed to withstand heavy usage, the built in volume control allows you to change the level of sound very easily, an anti-crash lock to ensure that your records remain safe even when turntables are knocked and a shock absorber system that reduces the level of damage that can be caused by the occasional jolt that is felt when using some of these machines. Overall, the Marantz TT-15S1 turntable offers great performance and all the great features that you would expect from this line.

The Marantz TT-15S1 turntable comes with a tonearm that has an optimized cutting depth that allows for cutting through even the most sensitive vinyl. This means that even when you are recording a live show or a live album, you will be able to get the best out of it. Another great feature is that the belt is fully adjustable and also uses shock absorbers so that there is no worry about causing injury due to heavy equipment. There is also a foot pedal that allows you to change the speed of the record player. This is useful for people who like to play slow and smooth or are more comfortable with fast and slanted tracks.

If you want to have the most reliable and powerful unit that you can afford then you would be pleased to know that this unit comes with a tonearm called the MR Booster. This roller bearing is one of the most powerful roller bearings available on the market. This is because it has been designed to run at a much faster speed than the standard tonearm on any other model of Marantz Turntable. It runs at 45 RPM, which allows for smooth and precise tracking even during tough recordings. The tonearm also works in conjunction with the tonearm’s locking mechanism that keeps everything in place and prevents any slipping or unwanted movements.
