SOTA Comet Turntable Series III w/ S301 Tonearm Special Package


  • $1,300.00 USD


The SOTA Comet turntable offers affordability and engineering dexterity in one marvelous machine. With the SOTA Comet turntable, you'll hear music rendered cleanly and quietly. This is because the Comet isolates noise and vibration from affecting its groove retrieval function. And this is what differentiates it from other turntables and the reason why the Comet continues to be highly positioned in the firmament of high-end turntables.

The acclaimed Rega S301 tonearm mates exquisitely with the Sota Comet turntable. The dustcover is available as an additional accessory.
