SOTA COMET SERIES III TURNTABLE WITH S301 TONEARM IN TEXTURED BLACK
The SOTA COMET III turntable offers affordability and engineering dexterity in one marvelous machine. With the SOTA Comet, 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 S-301 tonearm offers adjustable anti-skating, damped cueing, and can
accommodate a wide range of cartridges.
The COMET dustcover is available as an additional accessory.
