Redpoint's Peter Clark says, "Your heart doesn't beat in ones and zeroes—it's analog." That's why he builds turntables, 'tables machined from solid billets of aircraft aluminum and configures the platter, motor, and tonearm platforms on separate support pods on a common platform.
The $15,000 Model A's platter is topped off with Teflon and is damped with lead shot and oil.
"Why is a turntable called Redpoint blue?"
"I did that for our distributor Frank L. Kraus, who also distributes ModWright and already had a blue ModWright LS36.5. Since Redpoint turntables are handmade, I can can 'customize' every one to suit the customer."
