About the MoFi Electronics StudioDeck Foundation

A rock-solid turntable, made in the U.S.A.

In order to make their own remastered album releases sound even better, Mobile Fidelity created their own line of turntables. The StudioDeck Foundation — their entry-level offering — is an exceptional 'table in its own right. Everything but the cartridge is made in the U.S.A. to exacting specifications.

A rock-solid turntable, made in the U.S.A.

In order to make their own remastered album releases sound even better, Mobile Fidelity created their own line of turntables. The StudioDeck Foundation — their entry-level offering — is an exceptional 'table in its own right. Everything but the cartridge is made in the U.S.A. to exacting specifications.

About that cartridge: it's a doozy. The Foundation comes with an excellent factory-installed StudioTracker, which is designed to mimic the shape of the head on the lacquer cutting lathe Mobile Fidelity uses when creating vinyl records. That way, MoFi's albums and their player fit together like hand in glove, for an exceptional listening experience.

The American-made MoFi Electronics Foundation looks every bit as good as it sounds.

The American-made MoFi Electronics Foundation turntable includes an excellent factory-installed StudioTracker cartridge.

Thoughtful, innovative design

Mobile Fidelity asked some legendary designers to weigh in on the details of their turntable line, because they know audiophiles care about the details. They used a dense, noise-reducing polymer called Delrin® to make the platter, and a clever inverted bearing system makes the platter spin flawlessly.

They also worked hard to foolproof the initial setup process by simplifying placement of the counterweight and anti-skating weight. To make things even easier, the Mobile Fidelity UltraPhono phono stage with headphone amplifier and its little brother, the StudioPhono without headphone amplifier, are both perfectly matched to this turntable — straight out of the box. (Both are available separately; not included.)
