    A new USA made turntable ... The Shinola Runwell (video)

    Post by Bob Latino on Tue Jan 24, 2017 9:06 am

    The Shinola company in Detroit, Michigan is now in the process of making its first run of 500 Shinola Runwell turntables. These will be "Made in USA" from USA and some foreign derived parts. Priced at about $2500 USD, they will not be a budget item. Check the video and the link to their web site below .. Hey, we have Schitt DAC's so why not Shinola turntables ?

    Always good to know. That makes two US-sourced TTs that I have learned of through this group. The first being U-Turn Audio's efforts.

    Thanks!

    Has a built in mm preamp and no visible anti skating. Looks like a potentially serious turntable that got seriously compromised by design choices.
    Lose the cheapie preamp on a chip and add anti-skating

    With the amount of advertising they are paying for, Shinola obviously has bigger plans than five hundred turntables.  They are all over the Internet and even have a billboard on the main street between downtown San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Shinola Detroit, the manufacturer, has no connection with the original Shinola shoe polish company other than having acquired the trademark from the heirs of the Shinola company which went out of business in 1960. But they do include shoe polish among their products which include wristwatches, and now a turntable.

    I guess we're just lucky they didn't follow Schiit's example for a catchy brand name ...

    Wonder if those will still be spinning after 40 years like my trusty ol' Mitsu? Guess I'll just have to stick around and find out!

    Well, if you were choosing between listening to analog or digital material, and you happened to have both the above mentioned products in your system, then the choice would be between Schiit or Shinola.

    Not knowing Schitt from Shinola is the reason Bose is in business.
