Well Tempered Versalex Turntable
About Well Tempered Versalex Turntable
The flagship Well Tempered Versalex turntable and removable LTD tonearm were both introduced at CES 2012.
The Versalex employs multilayer “Baltic” plywood plinth with Walnut veneered top surface. Baltic plywood has natural resonances that also results in a very natural “EQ”. It is therefore very suitable for these purposes, however, as it is a product of nature, minor irregularities in grain are to be expected
The Well Tempered Lab Versalex is pre-drilled with inserts to facilitate easy mounting of LTD Tonearm. The tonearm is available in both 9″ and 10.5″. There’s no extra cost for the longer arm.
Well Tempered Versalex Turntable Reviews
“It was the analogue source that captivated most. Its sound was relaxed, natural and effortless but immaculately timed and tonally inspiring. – The Audio Beat, on the Well Tempered Versalex and LTD tonearm at CES 2012CES & THE Show 2012 • Best of Show” – THE AUDIO BEAT
“The Versalex has a knack for getting music out of the groove in an effortless, yet gripping fashion.
It’s the sort of sound that encourages you to wind up the level and rifle through the record collection.
This turntable does three dimensionality & soul as well as it does timing and Richie Lee Jone’s voice sent tingles down my spine as she sang There Goes My Baby.
When you let Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard strut their stuff in the style they had in the day. I’m talking about the album Tres Hombres and the track La Granga, seemingly simple, gritty blues played in the down and dirty style that only ZZ Top could do. The timing is locked down tight so Gibbons’ righteous guitar playing can cut loose and lay down the jam.
Spinning an original zip front copy of Sticky Fingers that’s really too worn revealed pretty much all the glory of Keith Richards’ spare, biting riff alongside the richness of the funky swampy sound of the keyboards and sax at the end. Delivering it in such a fashion that you merely sit and listen.”- HI FI CHOICE. JASON KENNEDY
