The Emotion SE package offers a complete solution to the music lover who is looking for superior sound and authentic music reproduction, but without the need for specialist technical help in matching turntable components.
This technically improved version of the well-known Emotion turntable is based on a semi-transparent chassis designed to reject harmful resonance. A 28mm-thick acrylic platter is belt-driven by a decoupled synchronous motor. The patented ceramic magnetic bearing (CMB) provides superb speed stability. A resonance-optimised physically separate die cast metal motor housing ensures that motor vibrations cannot harm the sound. This provides maximum speed stability and vibration-free replay of your favourite records from Abba to Zappa, from Beethoven to Schoenberg.
Matched with the Satisfy Kardan carbon tonearm and a Clearaudio Artist V2 moving magnet (MM) cartridge, the Emotion SE succeeds in extracting even the most delicate information stored in the record groove. Even newcomers to the world of high-end audio can now enjoy maximum accuracy of music reproduction and a superior listening experience.

The Emotion SE can stand toe-to-toe with any rival below the two-grand mark - it really is that good
Once set up properly, the Emotion SE is a class leader.
No matter what music you play - we went through a raft of discs from REM's Automatic For The People, to Bob Marley's Catch a Fire, to Duka's The Sorcerer's Apprentice - the SE takes it all in its stride. There's strong dynamics, impressive stereo imaging and a transparency that's hard to better for anything like this money.
The Emotion Se is a major step-up over the standard deck and is an excellent sounding performer for the money
