Wheel 2

Wheel 2 plays records from the back. All technology is safely hidden underneath your record. It plays singles, LP’s and everything in between.

Smart slide track for the easiest operation.

It works upright on a stand or wall, or flat on a table. A stand is included with every Wheel.

The optional AT-VM95E cartridge makes Wheel 2 sound richer and more detailed. And it opens the way to install the Nude Shibata stylus for true high end audio.

    Beautiful design

    Wheel's minimalistic shape is designed to be displayed. From afar, it's a minimal masterpiece. Up close, the details shine. It stands apart in any room. And if you prefer it on the wall, it rises to the occasion. Enjoy beauty from every angle, whether you press play or not. You can even use it horizontal like a normal turntable.

    Ease of use

    • Volume control

      Wheel’s innovative Slide track and line display contains a wealth of functions in a very simple design.You always feel in control. To change output volume, just slide the track.

    • Control playback

      The Slidetrack does more than just slide. Below the track are three buttons. Just press on the Slidetrack to play, pause, select next or previous track.

    • Tracks scan

      Wheel’s sensors precisely scan your record’s tracks. The leds on the display show the track positions, and the bright led shows the stylus position.

    Stunning sound

    Wheel's beauty isn’t just skin deep. It’s packed with technology to master sonic excellence. A feast for the eyes and ears!

    Constant Groove Speed & Unique Stylus Tracking

    Normal good record players might run a precise 33 1/3 rpm rotational speed for a LP, but we think that misses the point. The record itself defines the playback quality as much as the player does, probably more. 

    Wheel uses three closed loop motors and the linear tonearm to control all movement where it counts most: at the tip of the stylus.

    Wheel continuously gathers info of all these motors to calculate the correct speed of the track or groove. Even if Wheel plays a record that's out of alignment or balance (believe us, most are), it plays the track of your record at a constant 33 1/3 rpm.

    What does that mean to you? Just pop on almost any record on your Wheel 2 and enjoy your music as pure as it gets.

    Testimonials

    I recently picked up my Wheel-2 personally in Schagen and I am very satisfied! The sound is great, crystal clear, the operation is very nice and simple, completely in keeping with the design.
    In short, a deep bow and I have a unique record player that I use with pride!

    Jaap de Koning

    I received The Wheel 2 from you. What a fantastic sound. What a difference with CD and MP3, where you still can hear the loss due to digitization. I had to say goodbye to my LP's 15 years ago, but I never really liked the sound of CD's. Sampling is impoverishment and you miss the harmonics. Thanks for bringing this LP quality back into my life, great!

    André Elferink

    After unpacking we saw The Wheel 2 for the first time in real life. Wow! And after connecting, the party just got bigger and bigger. The beautiful full and warm sound, amazing. This is what it's all about in the end.

    All I can say is, what a fantastic machine. And what an eye-catcher.

    Finally got the Wheel 2 after all the customs stuff.  I am blown away and so happy.  Thank you so much for your help.  It is more than I expected and could have hoped for.  Wheel 2 is such a masterpiece of engineering .  Thank you to your family for bringing a revolution to how vinyl is played and also enjoyed.  I can't wait to see what more that you all bring to the table of the evolution of the Wheel. I am forever a fan and customer.

    The Wheel 2 arrived safe yesterday. It was a really nice experience to unpack and hear the first vinyls and also the whole system is really amazing.

    Please say thanks to the whole team.

    I've had the Wheel 2 for a couple of months now and I could not be happier. I like beautiful, well designed things and the Wheel 2 is, imho, really up there. So, I guess what I want to say is 'bravo' and 'thank you'.
