Alva TT. Just Add Vinyl.

You’ve spent years building your record collection. You’ve dedicated weekends to searching for hidden gems in record stores and carefully curating your discoveries. You worked hard, because you love music. We worked hard creating Alva TT, because we love music too.

The World’s First Bluetooth aptX HD Turntable

Built-in Bluetooth aptX HD liberates your record player from the hi-fi rack. With the freedom to place Alva TT anywhere you like, your records are invited into the lime-light. Your music can be streamed from Alva TT to any compatible Bluetooth receiver at up to 24bit/48kHz Hi-Res quality.

Integrated Phonostage

Alva TT’s custom designed, integrated phonostage simplifies process of a physical connection - removing the need for extra boxes in your set-up. This phonostage builds on the success of our award-winning, 5-star standalone pre-amplifiers, the Alva Solo and Alva Duo, reducing unwanted noise while preserving the characteristic warmth of your vinyl.

MC Cartridge Pre Installed

The cartridge on the Alva TT is pre-installed. There’s no tricky set-up needed, and it’s perfectly matched to the other components in the turntable. 

We opted for a High-output Moving Coil (MC) cartridge with an exposed cantilever design.  It reduces unwanted resonance and vibration, delivers high levels of gain and outstanding musical detail during playback.

Protect Your Turntable

Your records are your prized possessions, so we include a detachable dust cover with the Alva TT to protect whatever your spinning.

Direct Drive

Rather than go for a Belt Drive system with the ALVA TT, we opted for a medium-torque Direct Drive. Over time, the elastic used on a Belt Drive turntable can stretch and will need to be replaced. As a result of this wear, Belt Drive turntables traditionally have a less accurate playback speed than their Direct Drive cousins. This isn’t a problem on the ALVA TT – it has just 0.06% Wow and Flutter. This means a far better pitch stability – particularly during longer, more sustained musical notes.

POM Platter

Complimenting the Direct Drive motor, the platter on the Alva TT is both dense and heavy. It’s made from Polyoxymethylene (POM), an high-tech engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness and excellent dimensional stability. The weight of the platter, coupled with our medium torque Direct Drive motor, ensures excellent speed stability during playback of your records.

British-made Single Piece Tonearm

The Alva TT uses a classic British-made one-piece tonearm. There are no joints, giving it the best possible grounding for the cartridge and offering extremely low friction. 

It’s designed to retrieve the maximum amount of sonic detail from the cartridge and therefore your records.
