Analog recording is still very alive. Quality turntables are still in demand. Digital discs simply set new performance standards that turntables must meet. Many cherished records may never be issued on digital formats. Good turntables are now more important than ever. Marantz embraces an audiophile quality turntable with AC servo belt-drive and low-coloration tone arm to answer the need for a high performance source component for the analog record.

Low-Resonance High-Density Acrylic Chassis and Platter

A solid plinth belt-drive design (the preferred turntable drive system), the TT-15S1 features a chassis and platter made from dense glass cast PMMA acrylic composite that has inherent vibration and resonance deadening capabilities, which helps the TT-15S1 deliver an astonishing 80 dB signal to noise ratio.

Floating Motor Mount Construction

Equipped with a reference class anodized aluminum manual tonearm, the TT-15S1 comes with a top-class MM cartridge from Clearaudio and features a precision AC synchronous motor in a massive die-cast housing that thoroughly suppresses motor vibrations, delivering its smooth torque to the thick, heavy platter via a continuous loop (joint-less) silicon belt.

Asynchronous AC Motor

The anti-skating system features magnetic compensation instead of a weighted system, and features precision adjustment. The adjustable counterweight is continuously variable and has precise weight adjustment indication increments of 0.1g.

"Clever Clamp" by Souther Engineering

The included phono cartridge is the top-class Clearaudio Virtuoso MM model which features an ebony wood body that resists resonances along with a specially polished diamond stylus, lightweight aluminum cantilever and highly effective cartridge damping.

Solid Aluminum 3 points Support Feet

The turntable rests on 3 solid aluminum feet that are height adjustable, ensuring stability even on slightly irregular mounting surfaces.

Wood Base, High Quality MM Cartridge

Along with assembly and adjustment tools, the TT-15S1 comes with everything you need, including the "Clever Clamp", a felt slip mat, a tonearm height shim (for use with the mat), white gloves, bearing oil and a spare silicon belt.

Marantz TT-15S1 Belt Drive Turntable with Cartridge – White

Introducing the beautiful white Marantz TT-15S1 Belt Drive Turntable with Cartridge, opening a new era in the company’s turntable design. This magnificent turntable stands out for its immaculate sound quality, painstaking attention to detail, and a platform made of frosted acrylic that oozes luxury. The Marantz TT-15S1 is the pinnacle of divine high-fidelity. It was painstakingly designed and lovingly assembled from hand-selected components to guarantee an unmatched listening experience with unmatched clarity.

Floating Motor

The TT-15S1 turntable boasts several innovative features that contribute to its exceptional performance. The Floating Motor Mount Construction ensures precise motor isolation, minimizing vibrations for optimal audio output.

Low-Resonance

The Low-Resonance High-Density Acrylic Chassis and Platter further enhance audio quality by reducing unwanted vibrations that could interfere with sound fidelity.

Asynchronous

The Asynchronous AC Motor ensures stability in rotation speed, guaranteeing consistent and accurate playback. Coupled with the Belt Drive System that employs an endless silicon belt, the turntable delivers smooth and reliable operation, contributing to the overall excellence of the listening experience.

Belt Drive System

Incorporating cutting-edge design and meticulous engineering, the Marantz TT-15S1 Belt Drive Turntable in White not only delivers outstanding audio performance but also stands as an elegant centerpiece for any audiophile’s setup, redefining the standards of high-fidelity music playback.

Marantz turntables have entered the white era. Defined by its pristine sound, immaculate detailing and frosted acrylic platform, Marantz TT-15S1 is the picture of divine high-fidelity. Masterfully crafted, and carefully curated with hand-selected materials, the TT-15S1 is as impeccable as they come, delivering the most authentic format with unprecedented clarity.

Contained within the package are an array of components that comprise the Marantz Reference Series TT-15S1 turntable. The set includes the fundamental turntable chassis, the center shaft, and the corresponding shaft base, along with the necessary trio of shaft base mounting screws. The turntable’s tone arm, equipped with a 39″ audio/ground cable, forms a pivotal part of the assembly, complemented by the presence of the turntable platter.

Integral components such as the motor, complete with a 6.5′ AC power cord, and the accompanying motor pulley are integral to the turntable’s operation. Additionally, to ensure optimal handling during setup and usage, the package includes a pair of white cotton gloves. Grounding is facilitated through the inclusion of a 5′ ground wire featuring a spade connector.

Precision is a cornerstone of this package, evident in the provision of a counterweight, two drive belts, and a vial of 5 ml bearing oil. A felt turntable pad contributes to both performance and care. The ingenious Clever Clamp by Souther Engineering serves as the record clamp, enhancing the listening experience.

The comprehensive nature of the package extends to utility as well, with essential tools such as 3mm, 2.5mm, and 1.5mm Allen wrenches, as well as a screwdriver. Further calibration is supported by the inclusion of a felt tone arm height adjustment sheet. Completing the ensemble are a head shell and the required mounting screw, accompanied by an MM-type cartridge from ClearAudio, incorporating two cartridge mounting screws for precision. Notably, the package encompasses an anti-skating adjustment screw to fine-tune performance.

For seamless navigation and a comprehensive understanding of setup and usage, the package incorporates a user guide, ensuring that users can embark on their high-fidelity journey with confidence.
