Selecting the right tonearm and cartridge can be a daunting task …
We carry tonearms from 8 manufacturers and cartridges from 6 companies, and we’ll help you tailor your system to your tastes.

We take setup seriously …
With the demise of most brick and mortar dealers, buying “manufacturer direct” doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice service.
In normal times, all new Galibier turntables delivered in the Continental US (and most parts of Canada) are set up by us at your house. Check our On-site Setup page for details.

In the development pipeline …
We’ve submitted the finalized the chassis design to our fabricator, and expect to be going into production shortly.
This is not your grandfather’s 300B. We’ve pulled out all of the stops, including four independent power supplies per channel, a copper subchassis, a unique choice of rectifiers, and a signal path with only 5 inches of wire.

Eiger – Rim Drive
To quote David Crosby: “It’s been a long time comin’…”.
Recent improvements we made to the Stelvio-II cast some doubt as to whether the Eiger could differentiate itself sufficiently from the Stelvio-II. Such is the rim-drive like immediacy that the Stelvio conveys.
We think we have something special in the Eiger however. It’s different (not better) and we’re projecting a Fall, 2019 release.
Here’s what one customer had to say about a late stage prototype:
The rim drive is a revolutionary (as opposed to evolutionary) development. I have heard just about every contender for ‘best turntable in the world’. What I heard on Saturday night is the best vinyl I have ever heard… and second place isn’t that close.
