GrooveMaster Vintage Direct

PBN DP2 5496


The PBN-DP2 is based on the Denon DP2000. This is the second model of the series, and is complete with custom refinements in both engineering and artistry. A key advantage over the DP3: greater speed stability, and precision electronic braking when stopping play or during speed changeovers. The DP2 features the amazingly accurate AC servo motor that operates at 99.998% accurate speed – plus Servo-controlled Direct Drive. The turntable comes complete with a Jelco SA750 (B) tone arm. The DP Series are nearly “plug-and-play” ready, with only minor hook-ups required. Though incorporating vintage parts, the GrooveMaster Vintage Direct players are rebuilt from the ground up and should perform brilliantly for decades to come. We welcome all inquiries.

The form-aged solid hardwood plinths are custom-made from individually selected planks. The three precision-cut layers are glued together so the grain of each is angled at 120 degrees, providing resonance-free stability as well as spectacular grain patterns. We work with a variety of woods including cherry, maple, walnut and oak. The deep, liquid finishes use only state-of-the-art materials. Each plinth is a unique work of art in itself.
