El Chunko is Audiowood's newest design, a minimalist turntable in concrete and glass. It features an audiophile grade parts kit by Rega (UK), including an RB220 Arm, Carbon Cartridge, and precision glass platter. Each El Chunko concrete base is hand formed and somewhat unique. The combination of a high-mass concrete base and black-dyed mdf create an extremely resonance-free platform that minimizes extraneous noise for album playback.
While photos show off the glass platter, El Chunko uses a felt mat under records during play.
The Rega Carbon Cartridge is aligned on delivery and has a user-replaceable stylus. Turntable setup takes less than 10 minutes and involves merely connecting power, bolting on the arm/armboard, and putting the glass platter and felt mat in place.
El Chunko is available in either 110V 60hz US-style or 230V 50hz international versions.
Because each El Chunko is made to order, please allow up to 4 weeks before shipping.
Shipping is free in the US, $120 everywhere else. International buyers need to specify voltage and are responsible for any customs fees assessed in their home country.
This table is a custom order, and should ship in less than 4 weeks. If in stock, El Chunks will be shipped in 1-2 days, however "availability" refers to the total number we can make at present, rather than their status as completed and in stock.
El Chunko is made in the USA and comes with a 2 year warranty from Audiowood, protecting against defects in manufacture and assembly. The cartridge is not included in this warranty
