Turntable Upgrades

In 1983, even before starting Mapleshade Studio, Pierre Sprey jumped into his first high-end design project: upgrading the legendary Maplenoll Turntable for air-bearing pioneer Bob Dilger. With his love of collecting LPs and transforming turntables undiminished, Pierre came full circle by launching our turntable upgrades in 2007-- each the direct byproduct of his never-ending R&D to improve the sound of playback.
