Meet the Orbit turntable

We build the Orbit because everybody deserves access to a quality vinyl experience. Our Orbit Builder lets you choose the color, cartridge, and platter that fits your preferences and budget. New to vinyl? Check out our tutorials.

Detailed & natural sound

A turntable should be reliable and easy to use, but most importantly it should sound great. The Orbit is built from high-quality materials and features an innovative unipivot tonearm and an AC synchronous motor that runs quietly and consistently.

Back to basics

All too often quality is sacrificed in favor of superfluous features. By re-engineering critical components and eliminating gimmicks, we built a turntable that significantly reduces the cost of high-performance playback. 


"With the Orbit Basic turntable, U-Turn Audio has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams; their very first attempt is a knockout!"

Steve Guttenberg, CNET 



"Holy shit! The U-Turn Orbit turned out to be even better than I originally thought and I originally thought it was damn good to begin with."

Michael Fremer, Analog Planet



"A 179 dollar miracle... it offers those unfamiliar with analog playback an inexpensive and uncomplicated way to find out what the fuss is all about."

Jerold O'Brian, TONEAudio



"If you haven't made the plunge and bought a record player, it's about time you thought about picking up the Orbit Turntable."




"U-Turn Audio's minimalist $179 Orbit Basic produces sound as good as equipment twice its price."
