Black Orbit Custom showing the new magnesium one piece tonearm on OA3

Introducing Orbit Arm 3

Designed to make audiophile-grade playback more accessible. One-piece armtube for exceptionally low resonance. Molded in the USA from magnesium, a strong yet lightweight material with superior vibration damping properties. Precision gimbal bearing design allows the stylus to move freely – eliminating distortion and capturing more musical detail. Adjustable stainless steel counterweight and internal anti-skate. Ready to play out of the box with pre-installed cartridge.

Green Orbit Custom with electronic speed control knob

Choose your speed control

Manually change speeds (33/45 RPM) by moving the belt from one pulley groove to the other. Or upgrade to electronic speed control to change speeds with the turn of a knob. Our advanced motor controller ensures pinpoint speed accuracy by using a sine wave generator that monitors and adjusts speed thousands of times per second.

All-new design for improved durability and performance.
Electronic speed control
Turn knob to change 33/45 RPM.

Choose your platter

Our basic platter is made from medium density fiberboard (MDF), a wood composite material with excellent acoustic properties. For improved speed consistency and more musical detail, upgrade to our frosted acrylic platter. Acrylic is great for minimizing unwanted vibrations thanks to its high density and low stiffness. It’s precision machined for flatness and virtually zero runout.

Grooved Platter
Improved speed consistency and lower resonance.
Inverted main bearing
Stable, low-noise, and maintenance-free.

Add Iso-Level Feet

For advanced vibration isolation, add our new Iso-Level Feet.
