About

The only feedback you hear on Spinbase is from Jimi Hendrix's guitar.
Spinbase (white) pictured with a white U-Turn Orbit Turntable.

Spinbase is a low-profile powered speaker system that supports turntables and record players. It gives vinyl enthusiasts a compact, yet high-quality speaker solution to complete their turntable setup, without the fuss and space required by extra speakers. In other words: You bring the SPIN, we bring the BASE.

Spinbase also features Bluetooth wireless streaming, and support for extra devices like an alexa dot or CD player. More info below.

Put your favorite turntable, record player, or CD player (etc.) on top of Spinbase.

Spinbase was demonstrated to audio enthusiasts at Capital Audiofest and the New York Audio Show.

Audio enthusiasts who have heard Spinbase at hi-fi audio shows:

Turntables pick up details in records that music enthusiasts love. But turntables are also sensitive to speaker vibrations, which can cause acoustic feedback – the rumble you hear when you turntable is too close to speakers. Nothing wrecks the vinyl listening experience more.

To overcome this age-old issue, our team created Isogroove™, an innovative technology that eliminates feedback. This allows Spinbase to be placed directly underneath a turntable, serving as both an elegant platform and a wide-range loudspeaker system.

Spinbase accommodates turntables large and small, new and old, with a clean design that seamlessly integrates with your favorite make and model. We feature a single knob for operating the unit, so Spinbase is easy to use, and easy on the eyes. 

A metal perforated grill, lined with speaker fabric, allows for musical transparency, while providing a subtle, yet sophisticated look to your turntable setup. 

The large, ergonomic dial turns on the unit and allows for fine volume adjustment. A subtle indicator on the knob points to "off" or the current volume position, without interrupting the sleek look of the front.

On the back panel, bass and treble controls allow listeners to custom tune Spinbase to their favorite sound. Clearly labeled inputs make connection to your turntable or auxiliary device a snap. A headphone out is provided for quiet listening.

Spinbase significantly improves the sound quality, loudness (SPL), and range of a record player. Listen to a before and after audio comparison, recorded with the same mic setup.

The Spinbase audio system utilizes a clever arrangement of two woofers and two tweeters to produce an expansive stereo-image. Its clarity and output levels match the performance of small bookshelf speakers.

Traditional turntable/speaker setups create "sweet spots", which can deny multiple listeners ideal listening conditions. Spinbase creates a balanced sound stage, making everywhere the best listening position.

Simple Setup with Spinbase

Spinbase removes the need for multiple cables and extra speakers, with a setup that can’t be easier:

1.  Place a Spinbase on any flat surface.

2.  Place your turntable or record player on top.

3.  Connect the audio cable from your turntable to Spinbase. 

DONE.

Connect to Spinbase with Bluetooth to Stream your Favorite Music

In addition to being a speaker system for turntables, users can wirelessly stream audio to Spinbase with the latest Bluetooth. You can also connect another source, such as a wireless streamer or CD player, making Spinbase a complete analog and digital entertainment system. 

Connect Spinbase to your computer, or use it as a monitor stand.

Risks and challenges

Our team has many decades of experience in audio engineering, manufacturing, design and retail. Our factory making Spinbase and its suppliers are long time partners of Andover Audio, allowing us to manage potential risks found in traditional brand/factory relationships.

Potential risks we foresee are schedule delays, such as supply-inconsistencies, third-party vendor delays, tooling complications, and/or unforeseen high-demand on Kickstarter, which can affect delivery to late-supporters.
