Galaxie’s Orbit

UturnWe welcome the fittingly named 'Orbit' turntable to Galaxie. The Orbit is an impressive, sleek, high quality American turntable, made in Boston by U-Turn Electronics. Available now in our store!

Stop by to check it out. Pair it with our original Galaxie speakers for a sound that is out of this galaxy!!


The Orbit’s low-voltage AC synchronous motor provides excellent speed consistency and minimizes pitch variation (wow & flutter). The motor is decoupled from the plinth using a unique rubber suspension that prevents unwanted vibrations from seeping into the sound, 

The Orbit's CNC machined pulley turns an exposed drive belt and plays both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records. The platter rides on an inverted main bearing – providing superior stability and reduced bearing noise (rumble). In other words, all you hear is the music on your record.

The tonearm is the crucial link between record and speakers. To do its job well, it must achieve harmony between tracking force, mass distribution, and rigidity. The Orbit’s innovative unipivot arm turns effortlessly on an inverted pyramid of precision ball bearings, and works with the arm’s low center of mass to provide accurate tracking.

Every Orbit comes pre-fitted with your choice of an Audio-Technica, Ortofon, or Grado Labs moving magnet (MM) cartridge, which is balanced by an adjustable stainless steel counterweight. The Orbit's silver-plated wiring is housed within an aluminum armtube, ensuring faithful signal transfer from the cartridge.
