The Hyperspace is a very substantial turntable from Nottingham Analogue. It features a heavy 58mm thick alloy platter topped with a 25mm thick graphite 'mat' which gives the deck a level of composure not often found elsewhere. It's a combination of these materials and their mass which means that backgrounds are very quiet and the sound is always effortless and never flustered thanks to their ability to resist dynamic wow (the effect where the drag on the stylus can cause subtle pitch shifts as it tracks the grooves).
The Hyperspace is effectively an evolution of the Spacedeck design, like the Ace Spacedeck it uses metals in its construction chosen for their high mass and resonance characteristics, just upscaled substantially. Unlike many turntables where one material is used throughout (which then tend to impart a lot of their own character onto the reproduction) the Nottingham Analogue philosophy has always been to choose materials based on how they work together, maximining their individual strengths whilst damping and minimising their weaknesses. It's this that I feel makes these turntables so neutral and even handed, there's no added zing but nor is there any deadness either, just a brilliant compromise that really does show what's contained within the grooves of your records.

The bronze bearing is equipped with their carbide 'thrust pump' arrangement, which reduces noise and improves detail retrieval and definition whilst resisting wear from the platter weight incredibly well.

For those unfamiliar with the Hyperspace turntable design, it features three basic elements, there's the gloss painted plinth upon which the motor assembly and the main turntable assembly sit upon.

As is normal with Nottingham Analogue turntables you push to start them, with the motor intentionally only just powerful enough to maintain the platters momentum which means vibration from the AC motors cogging is kept to a minimum (reduced even further here by the very high mass motor housing). Speed change is manual by moving the belt on the pulley, but external electronic power supplies are available as both an upgrade and to add electronic speed control (like our own Governor power supply).

No lid is included, but a blank 'LP' is included to keep the platter dust free when not in use.  

Almost any arm can be accommodated, with armboards made to order (Rega, Linn, SME - you name it!), including arms up to 12" long. Even a second arm can be added at a later date, this goes in the rear left corner and the motor then moves to the front. The most popular arms on these decks are the hugely underrated models from Nottingham Analogue, so I've included the prices of these in the selectable menus to show their combined costs.

Like all Nottingham Analogue turntables this is a very low maintenance deck, there's no suspension to adjust or wear out, no belt to replace (it should last indefinitely) and apart from the very occasional oil top up or change, and naturally a cartridge/stylus change there's nothing else to worry about.

They come with decent instructions, so are relatively easy to assemble for anyone with some turntable experience, but naturally we are always happy to set them up for you (once built they will transport well in a car, but not via a courier), there is not a charge for this if we're supplying the tonearm too.

The standard finish is black, but the gloss sections (the plinth and main chassis) can be ordered in any RAL colour for an additional cost - please ask for more details.
