Andover announces updates for its all-one-turntable system series, including a new model and renaming of the products. The new Andover-One E($1,499) features trickle-down technology from the flagship, award-winning Andover-One (formerly Model-One), offering a more broadly accessible all-in-one turntable solution.
In addition, the Andover-One E retains the iconic footprint of the series with classic mid-century styling with natural walnut hardwood seamlessly integrating with the optional Andover-One subwoofer and storage stands.
The all-in-one design is possible thanks to Andover’s proprietary Isogroove technology, and allows the new Andover-One E to deliver the same high-quality, noise-free phono playback of its flagship model. Isogroove eliminates the occurrence of feedback between turntable and speaker, allowing the turntable to be mounted in the same, low-profile enclosure as the speakers, without fidelity-disruptive hum.
Andover-One E features a Pro-Ject belt-drive turntable with steel platter and a pre-set counterweight—ready to go right out of the box for a simplified setup. The speaker system includes two 3.5” aluminum woofers (one on each side) and two dome tweeters, bi-amplified by a powerful Class-D 150W amplifier for room-filling sound in a compact design.
The Andover-One includes many inputs/ouputs, as well as a host of customizable options easily accessible by a front-mounted graphic interface, with intuitive single-knob operation. The selectable sources include phono, Bluetooth (APT-X HD), and a dedicated input for a Wi-Fi streaming device.
Stereo and Mono listening modes are readily accessible, as well as a Panoramic mode that enhances the stereo image, making the unit sound like a pair of widely-spaced speakers. The settings menu provides custom adjustment of EQ, satisfying listeners seeking a sound balance that better matches their content or room.
Along with its name change, the flagship Andover-One is now bundled with Andover’s Songbird music streamer ($99 value).
Andover-One E is now available for pre-order here with a retail price of $1,499, and includes the Songbird internet music streamer for a limited time ($99 value).
