Enjoy your favorite 33 1/3 and 45 rpm vinyl records with wireless or wired connectivity to your stereo system with the Alva TT Direct Drive Turntable from Cambridge Audio. Built-in Bluetooth aptX HD enables you to place it anywhere you like and stream your music to a compatible Bluetooth receiver at up to 24-bit, 48 kHz high-resolution quality. The turntable's integrated phono stage simplifies your setup by removing the need for extra pieces of equipment—it provides the connection between the record player and an amplifier, minimizing noise while preserving the characteristic warmth of your vinyl.

The Alva TT comes preinstalled with a high-output moving coil (MC) cartridge with an exposed cantilever design. Perfectly matched to the other components in the turntable, the cartridge reduces unwanted resonance and vibration, and delivers high levels of gain and musical detail during playback. A detachable dust cover protects both the turntable and whatever you're spinning.

Direct Drive

Featuring a medium-torque direct drive, the Alva TT provides more accurate playback speed than belt-drive turntables. The Alva TT has just 0.06% wow and flutter, which means better pitch stability, particularly during long, sustained musical notes.

Pom Platter

Complementing the direct drive motor, the platter on the Alva TT is both dense and heavy. It's made from polyoxymethylene (POM), an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness and dimensional stability. The weight of the platter, coupled with the medium torque direct drive motor, ensures speed stability during playback of your records.

Single-Piece Tonearm

The Alva TT uses a British-made one-piece tonearm. With no joints, the tonearm provides the best possible grounding for the cartridge, with extremely low friction.

Asked by: LAWRENCE
The built-in preamp is high quality and it cannot be bypassed: Preamp: Gain 42 dB at 1 kHz Nominal Output 250 Vrms Equivalent Input Noise 0.1u Vrms A-Weighted RIAA Equalization Curve Accuracy &plusmn;0.3 dB 30 Hz to 20 kHz Signal-to-Noise Ratio &gt;90 dB (Ref 1 V Out, 20 Hz to 20 kHz BW) THD + N 0.0025% at 1 kHz Input Impedance 47 Kilohms Input Capacitance 320 pF You cannot use an external phono stage with the Alva TT. The turntable features a proprietary Cambridge Audio phono stage built-in (based on our award-winning ALVA Solo &amp; Duo phono stages) which is compatible with Moving Magnet (MM) or high output Moving Coil (MC) cartridges. Please Note: If your amplifier includes a phono stage built in, do not connect the Alva TT to the phono input. Connect the turntable to any other available RCA analogue input.
