So how do we make a single box work without the feedback?
Isogroove Technology is our revolutionary patent-pending technology.It addresses a common challenge faced by turntable users: feedback and vibrations that can occur when a turntable's speakers are placed too close to the turntable itself; interfering with the delicate playback of the vinyl.
Traditional speaker designs often require separate placement, which can be cumbersome and result in a less-than-ideal setup.Andover Audio's Isogroove Technology solves this problem by incorporating the speakers directly beneath the turntable, in a compact and streamlined design. This unique configuration ensures that vibrations and feedback are minimized, allowing for pristine sound reproduction without any disruptive distortions.
By utilizing Isogroove Technology, Andover Audio has created a seamless integration between the turntable and speakers.This eliminates the need for separate speaker placement, simplifies the setup process, and optimizes the listening environment.
Audiophiles know that most all-in-one products are fraught with compromises. And placing a turntable on top of a conventional loudspeaker is a definite no-no. That’s why Andover Audio applies a trio of advanced technologies to overcome these issues. Our IsoGroove™ Technology, Class D amplifier and 270° loudspeaker array combine to deliver soul-satisfying, room-filling music reproduction.
Loudspeakers work by producing vibration. The business end of a turntable works by detecting vibration. So under normal circumstances, placing your turntable directly on top of a loudspeaker is a recipe for a miserable distortion called “acoustic feedback.” Andover’s patent-pending IsoGroove® Technology protects your turntable from vibration – and protects your music from feedback. Independent audio critics who rarely agree on anything have declared the technology “lived up to its billing” and “works as advertised” and called it “so amazing” and “genius.”
Sound & Vision Top Pick
“Even when playing the SpinBase at a loud volume, its top surface remained well-damped and vibration-free.”
- Michael Trei, Sound & Vision
Class D power amplifier
Most power amplifiers generate heat along with the wattage. So it’s difficult to fit a powerful amp and a capable stereo loudspeaker into a single, compact enclosure. The solution? Our Class D amplifier is cool and compact, yet delivers prodigious sound.
270° loudspeaker array
Getting legitimate stereo from a single, compact cabinet is a challenge. The SpinBase system rises to the challenge with a pair of dome tweeters and a pair of cone woofers, carefully arranged in a 270° array. You’ll appreciate the results every time you listen.
“…satisfyingly smooth, feedback-free sound and musical pleasure well beyond the SpinBase’s $300 price point. I loved it!”
- Michael Fremer, Editor, analogplanet.com
Sleek and refined
The system gives you everything you need to enjoy vinyl and streaming music in a timeless, low-profile design. Highlights include a durable perforated metal grill; textured top surface; and large, elegant volume control.
The right base for your turntable
The SpinBase system is designed to sit directly under most turntables, including popular models like the Numark TT-100, Technics SL-230, Audio Technica LP-120, or our SpinDeck series of turntables. As long as your turntable feet fall within the SpinBase system’s dimensions, you’re good to go.
All the right connections
The system accommodates the widest range of turntables, including those with magnetic or ceramic cartridges and turntables with or without built-in preamps. And we apply the correct equalization to get the best sound, even from inexpensive ceramic cartridges. In addition, the SpinBase system provides quick and easy connections for Bluetooth streaming devices, a CD player and a subwoofer.
Make it a system
By themselves, your turntable and the SpinBase system deliver sound from your LPs as it was meant to be. But when you’re ready to take the next step, so are we. To raise your system to optimum listening height and add LP storage, choose our matching SpinStand rack. And for splendid reproduction of the lowest musical octaves, our SpinSub™ subwoofer is ideal.

My turntable does not have a built-in pre-amp. Will it work with SpinBase?
Yes. SpinBase has a built-in preamp, to work with turntables without one built in (such as Andover's SpinDeck turntable). Spinbase also works with turntables that have a pre-amp, by connecting them to its Line-Input.
How do you turn on Spinbase?
The front knob turns on the unit and adjusts volume. Rotate the knob clockwise so you hear a "click" to turn the unit on. Adjusting the knob will change the volume level. To shut Spinbase off, rotate the knob counter-clockwise until you hear a "click". The unit is now off.
How can I connect Bluetooth headphones?
The SpinBase receives Bluetooth. It does not transmit. You'll need to purchase a Bluetooth transmitter and plug it into the headphone output of the SpinBase. Google "airpods bluetooth transmitter" and you'lll see a bunch of options.
Can I connect a CD player?
Yes, you would connect it to the Line input on your SpinBase.
