General

The Akai BT-500 is a belt-driven turntable that combines authentic quality with modern functionality. It enables you to listen to your favourite records in hi-fidelity and also offers a USB interface as well as Bluetooth functionality so you can send your vinyl to a set of Bluetooth speakers. Listening to your record collection has never been more enjoyable!

Akai BT-500: durable and high-quality

The BT-500's extremely quiet belt-drive system boasts an isolated motor and prevents any vibrations via the platter and tonearm from affecting your music. Its heavy, die-cast aluminium platter ensures a stable loop and a very low signal-to-noise ratio. The tone arm's counterweight is adjustable and transfers the sound of the music to the Audio-Technica cartridge by means of an elliptical stylus. The rubber anti-slip mat covers the platter perfectly and ensures your records stay put.

Built-in phono preamp

The integrated phono amplifier in the BT-500 can be used with a conventional stereo amp, or connected directly to a set of active studio monitors. This also enables some modern additions like the Bluetooth module and makes the USB interface possible. You can stream the sound of your vinyl to a set of Bluetooth speakers or digitise your entire collection for eternity by connecting it to your computer via the USB port. For digitisation, you can choose a sampling rate of 44.1 to 48 kHz without losing any audio quality. As well as this modern functionality, the Akai BT-500 is also equipped with a headphone output for when you want to really submerse yourself in your records.
