The Sapphire’s simple yet effective suspension system has been revered for its ability to reliably isolate the record from the footfalls, environmental noise, and unwanted resonances.

The SOTA Sapphire™ is forty years young and features SOTA's famous four-point spring suspension. For decades, this simple yet effective suspension system has been revered for its ability to reliably isolate the record from the footfalls, environmental noise, and unwanted resonances that so often plague even the best listening spaces - without the use of costly isolation racks.

The Series VI Sapphire features a brand new motor control system with improved stability and more torque, as well as a new phenolic resin sub-chassis with ⅛" aluminum bracing. It also makes use of a magnetically levitating platter, which replaces the sapphire disc and all other weight-bearing contact points that the platter would rotate on. This elimination of bearing friction yields a turntable with beautifully dark backgrounds. The Sapphire VI also comes standard with solid aluminum spiked feet, allowing for clearer lows than ever before. With all of these new innovations, we believe that vinyl fans of all tastes can appreciate this lively and musical new installment in the legendary Sapphire line.

The Series VI Sapphire also comes with the option of the Eclipse electronics package, bringing truly state of the art motor control to a modestly-priced turntable.

SOTA turntables have a lifetime trade-in value, your investment in SOTA will never become outdated or obsolete. In twenty years you may want the new SOTA and you can trade in your old model.
