U-Turn Audio is an independent turntable maker located in Woburn, MA. Our mission is to make great sound more accessible.
We were started by three music lovers who believe you shouldn’t have to overpay for a great listening experience. In college, we found that our budgets were at odds with our ears. We had to choose between overpriced turntables that we couldn’t afford and cheap turntables that we couldn’t bear to listen to. So we decided to build our own.
In 2012, we launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Orbit Turntable, “an all-analog turntable for today’s vinyl listener.” The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and we have been building turntables and taking names ever since.
By doing all of our own design and engineering, keeping our manufacturing in-house, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide high-quality turntables at affordable prices. We value simple design, quality craftsmanship, and personal customer service.
We do what we do because better music makes for a better life. Buying and owning a turntable should be fun and easy, and it should leave money in your pocket for what really matters – the music.
