The new range includes the Sprout TA-0.5 Turntable which features a bamboo plinth, platter and tonearm, loaded with an Audio-Technica AT95E cartridge.

The 9″ arm has a unique counterweight system comprised of two craters filled with bronze balls, allowing adjustment without having to take the arm back to the rest each time. Suss another picture below:
