Collecting vinyl is a rewarding pursuit, but unless you’ve got a great deck to listen on, you’re not getting the full potential out of your collection. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, long known among record collectors for its extremely high fidelity analog remastering and limited-edition record reissues, will now offer its own line of turntables, cartridges, and phono preamps under the Mobile Fidelity Electronics name, all of which will add some serious cred to your listening setup.

The two turntables, called the StudioDeck and UltraDeck, both feature extremely high quality components in collaboration with multiple legendary analog hardware designers, including Delrin platters, isolated motors, anti-vibration feet from Harmonic Resolution Systems, and custom-designed tonearms from Allen Perkins of Spiral Groove.

Each turntable can be equipped with a custom designed StudioTracker, UltraTracker, or MasterTracker cartridge, each of which was also designed in partnership with Allen Perkins. Each line of Japan-built cartridge follows the same twin-magnet layout as the cutting head in a record lathe, allowing near-perfect accuracy in playback from what would have been heard in the mastering studio. The dual magnets also mean that stereo separation should be extremely good when listening via any of the cartridges.

In terms of phono preamps, the company’s USA-made StudioPhono and UltraPhono phono stages were designed by engineer Tim De Paravicini, and feature selectable gain, switchable mono mode, and a subsonic filter. The UltraPhono also features a built-in class A headphone amplifier, for those who like to listen through high-end headsets.

Each member of the MoFi lineup is in what the company calls a “moderately affordable” price range. The StudioDeck and UltraDeck will retail between $1,000 and $2,000 depending on model and cartridge selection. Cartridges run between $200 and $700, and the phono preamps retail for $250 and $500, respectively.

If it wasn’t clear already, these are high-end components designed to make the most of your record collection. Given the company’s long history of remastering and manufacturing excellent fidelity vinyl, and with so many high-quality components and audio names involved, we can’t imagine that they sound anything other than excellent. Those interested in learning more about the Mobile Fidelity Electronics line can get more information at the company’s website.

The 10 best Johnny Depp movies, ranked
Willy Wonka in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

Johnny Depp put his career in a tailspin in the late 2010s and early 2020s. From domestic abuse issues to drug abuse, the talented performer lost roles in the Fantastic Beasts series and hasn't appeared in many big films during the last decade. Current struggles don't erase past successes, though. Depp is one of the best actors of the 1990s and 2000s. His skills range from comedy, drama, fantasy, horror, and everything in between.

Depp often transforms into characters who look nothing like one another, from pirate captains to chocolatiers in top hats. His willingness to get out of his comfort zone and pursue audacious characters defined his prime and helped him become a Hollywood legend. These are the best Johnny Depp movies of all time!

There are a lot of options to sift through so stay with me here. For that reason, I highly recommend browsing the sale to see what's available. Starting with in a Famous exclusive Toro Box Press size, you're already saving with the current price -- at $100 instead of $160. Not to mention, those incredibly delicious cigars have been phased out for a new blend. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.
