FUNK FIRM: Funk Vector test and review

What HiFi:  Arguably the best-sounding sub-£1000 turntable there is – the Funk Vector is an oddly shaped minimalist turntable that positively bristles with clever ideas.

The most obvious example is a platter made of foamed vinyl instead of the MDF, acrylic or metal that its rivals use. Funk Firm claims this material has the best structural characteristics for a record support and is better damped than solid vinyl would be.

The other standout feature is the use of two pulleys and the motor to create a triangular belt arrangement that drives the inner platter without pulling at it unevenly. The idea is that if the inverted sapphire-tipped bearing spins more evenly, you'll get a much better overall sound.
