In just a few years, KRONOS Audio Products has become a leader in the turntable world.

KRONOS has won over 35 awards and “Best of Shows” from the international press along with glowing reviews from the world’s best audio journalists. The first thing that distinguishes a Kronos turntable is its two equal mass platters, rotating opposite each other. Kronos calls this the dual platter counter-rotating revolution. It is a means by which the vibration inducing torque force, present in suspended turntables is eliminated. The result of this design is a suspended platform particularly well isolated from environmental and mechanical noise while maintaining unequalled stability. You can immediately hear the difference dynamic stabilization makes. No other turntable can offer its advantages.

Simplicity equals ease of setup. Every single component of the KRONOS is engineered for simplicity and ease of use: the uncomplicated construction enables easy setup, smooth operation and long-term reliability. This straightforward design allows the focus to remain on superior sound delivery. Allow yourself to be transported back to the original moment of the recorded musical event: hear what you’ve been missing.
