Andover, MA—Sept. 2022—Andover Audio announces updates for its series of all-in-one turntable systems, including one new model and new names for all models. The new Andover-One E ($1,499) features technology trickled down from the flagship, award-winning Andover-One (formerly the Model One) and offers a more broadly accessible all-in-one turntable solution. In addition, the Andover-One E retains the series’ iconic footprint, with classic mid-century styling that seamlessly integrates natural walnut with the optional Andover-One subwoofer and storage stands.
The all-in-one-cabinet design is made possible by Andover’s proprietary IsoGroove technology, with which the Andover-One E can deliver the same high-quality, noise-free phono playback as Andover’s flagship Andover-One ($1,999). IsoGroove eliminates feedback between the turntable and speakers to allow them to be mounted in the same, low-profile enclosure with no disruptive, sound-degrading hum.
The Andover-One E features a Pro-Ject belt-drive turntable with a steel platter and pre-set counterweight—it’s ready to go right out of the box. The speaker system includes two 3.5” aluminum woofers (one on each side) and two dome tweeters, biamplified by a powerful Class-D 150W amplifier for room-filling sound from a compact design.
The Andover-One E includes many inputs and outputs and a host of customizable options easily accessible via its front-panel graphic interface with intuitive single-knob operation. Selectable sources include phono, Bluetooth (aptX HD), and a dedicated input for a Wi-Fi streaming device.
Stereo and Mono listening modes are readily accessible, as well as Panoramic mode, which enhances the stereo image to make this one-box system sound like a pair of widely spaced speakers. The Settings menu provides custom adjustment of EQ, to satisfy listeners seeking a sound balance that better matches their music and/or room.
The Andover-One E is now available for pre-order, with a suggested retail price of $1,499. For a limited time, all pre-orders will include the Songbird music streamer.
Along with its name change, the flagship Andover-One is now bundled with Andover’s SongBird music streamer ($99 value).
