You will be floored by the rich detail that flows through your ears

$1750 base price

Listening to the Comet, you will be floored by the rich detail that flows through your ears. The additional weight of the Comet’s design allows for improved levels of vibration control. The Comet’s platter spins on top of an interior dampened plinth utilizing constrained layer technology.

Wood Veneer choices allow you to match the Comet’s exterior finish to your house’s interior design concepts. The Comet delivers performance at a price point that is unattainable by our competition.

The Comet turntable includes the precision S330 tonearm, a one-piece, tapered arm-tube design, which yields exceptional performance. The S330 tonearm offers adjustable anti-skating, damped cueing and can accommodate a wide range of cartridges.

SOTA turntables have a lifetime trade-in value, your investment in SOTA will never become outdated or obsolete. In twenty years you may want the new SOTA and you can trade in your old model.
