Turn 5 is direct-drive turntable with a quartz-controlled brushless direct-drive DC motor, accented by gold trim
Coupled to the dampening rubber base of the platter (which is also supplied with a rubber mat), the Turn 5’s motor supports 33, 45 and 78RPM playback with a choice of three buttons on the top plate.
A S-shaped tonearm arrives with a removable headshell. The tonearm features an anti-skate dial, adjustable VTA, a hydraulic lift system and a “heavy” counterweight. In the box, the Turn 5 is supplied with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.
The turntable’s chassis is a heavy-duty metal construction with shock-absorbing feet. The rear-mounted gold-plated, phono-level RCA outputs with separate earth connection are recessed into the chassis. You also get a dust cover. Price is £650

If you can bear with me, Phil, I’ve requested a review sample so will be able to address that then.

When you review could you test the tonearm bearing play and antiskate adjustment as these Hanpin OEM turntables all seem to have issues. The DJ tables may have looser bearings due to the nature of 5heir use but this one should be up to specification.

I hope the company has improved matters since then.
