The Balance is the flagship turntable from German maestros Brinkmann. It is solid, masterfully engineered and sounds simply phenomenal. Truly a ‘super deck’

Brinkmann’s heaviest turntable keeps on running and running and running… with legendary quietness. Since its introduction in 1985, the Balance combines timeless beauty, highest sound quality and perfect build quality.

The basic design has remained the same (honestly, there isn?t much to improve), but in the best Brinkmann tradition, the turntable has seen continuous evolution und sonic optimizations. Hence today, the turntable is state of the art in terms of aesthetics and technology – as it has always been – while sounding better than ever. Little wonder then that the Balance is used as the absolute reference turntable not only by Brinkmann, but quite a few renowned publications aswell. Not surprisingly, the Balance has received quite a few awards over the years: the “Gold Medal” for turntables from the “Image Hifi Millenium Awards” or the “Blue Moon” award from
