$1,900 base price

SOTA’s Escape turntable again brings unparalleled performance to the price point. Three phase synchronous motor controlled by the Condor PSU drives a clean, clear, precise speed. With a 1/2″ phenolic resin plinth the plinth does an incredible job of removing vibrations. Sound clarity is found with the speed stability of the Eclipse package. More separation of instruments and voices create a soundstage that is breathtaking at a price point that is not. The stock tonearm is the RB 220, but the Escape mount accommodates Origin Live, SME, Rega, Audiomod, and many other tonearms. 360 brass spike feet with pads for improved imaging and sonics finish off the table.

For the ultimate in speed control consider adding the optional Roadrunner tachometer. This will provide feedback to the condor and ensure speed stability throughout the longest of listening sessions.
