Have you ever heard of the ELP Laser Turntable?
It reproduces analog music from vinyl records by laser,
neither using a stylus nor digitization.
The ELP Laser Turntable is dream come true
No Contact and No Wear
Vinyl records have more information than you know!
Sounds been recorded on the groove wall in vinyl records from the top
to the bottom. Needle reads the sounds at the bottom. The Lasers read
the sounds close to the top as described below without any contact.
Because of no contact, the Laser Sound Quality is quite similar to the
Original sound in the master tape.

The ELP Laser Turntable system
- The Laser Turntable has 5 Laser Beams.
- The First 2 beams aim at both shoulders at the left groove and right for tracking purposes.
- The Next 2 beams read the Audio Signal, closer to the shoulder.
- The Last beam is for the height control between laser head and the surface of record to manage thick or warped records.
Major Features of the ELP Laser Turntable. (No Contact and No Wear)
- The Laser consistently reads only pure Analog Audio Signals, without any digitization.
- The Laser picks up Audio Signals which have never been read by Needles
and reproduces Original Sound precisely as engraved on vinyl records
without any digitization.
- If the Audio Signal read by the Laser Beam has been seriously
damaged by the big size of needle, the position read by the Laser
can be changed up or down easily.
Lasers are so accurate that they play every particle of dirt and dust on the records, rather than pushing them aside as a conventional stylus would. The LT creates a lot of Noise and or Groove Skipping if the Record is too dusty. However, the cleaner your records get, the better the LT sounds, and the Noise lessens.
Professional sound engineers in Japan listened and determined that the Sound Quality of our Laser Turntable approaches the original sound on a master tape.
With the purest, sweetest Analog Playback
The laser “sees” and plays the music that a stylus misses !
