Rediscover the magic of vinyl records with Onkyo's audiophile quartz-lock controlled, direct drive turntable.

Rediscover the Magic of Vinyl
There's never been a better time to rekindle your passion for collecting and listening to records. With the introduction of the CP-1050, Onkyo offers a turnkey solution for audiophile-level analog sound with less hassle and expense. It features a smooth and stable direct drive (there's no belt to replace and less high-frequency noise) controlled by a quartz-lock system to ensure the aluminum platter rotates with utmost precision. The aluminum tonearm ships with a quality MM cartridge, and thanks to an innovative counterweight system and detachable headshell, it can also accept most popular aftermarket cartridges. Together with solid MDF deck construction, these elements combine to deliver exceedingly beautiful sound that's both clear and detailed while celebrating the lushness, depth, and warmth so beloved of the analog format. As you would expect from a company that created its first crystal turntable pickup for the CP-1000 back in 1946, every aspect of the design has been painstakingly engineered to deliver audio performance well beyond its suggested price.


Innovative Direct Drive Plays Records Clean and Clear

The enemies of turntable sound quality are vibration and electro-mechanical noise picked up by the stylus. Instead of a high-torque motor, Onkyo deploys a stable low-torque design that significantly reduces cogging noise, which can noticeably obscure low-frequency sound. And unlike belt-driven turntables that use fast electric motors, the direct-drive CP-1050 avoids the problem of high-frequency distortion. Combined with a precision quartz-lock control system and quality bearings, this liquid-smooth drive provides a clearer window on the soul of your music.


Quality Tonearm and Cartridge

At the business end of the aluminum tonearm is a detachable headshell that (together with an adjustable counterweight system) supports a range of aftermarket cartridges between 5g and 10g. The supplied MM cartridge does a brilliant job of capturing the depth and breadth of any track with an exceptionally wide frequency response and signal-to-noise ratio of over 60 dB - right up there with more costly decks. All design elements combine to produce such open and detailed analog sound you’ll be finding any excuse to go digging in the crates.



Effective Anti-Vibration Design

The turntable base is constructed from solid MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard) and sits on four height-adjustable anti-vibration feet. Together with the smooth direct-drive motor, the rigid structure tames resonances so you can enjoy clean playback throughout the entire frequency spectrum.


Good Looks, Great Build

Aesthetically, the CP-1050 is a pleasing blend of '70s retro cool and clean, contemporary style; it's dark woodgrain finish nicely contrasts the gleaming alloy tonearm and polished metal trim on the top of the deck. The player also includes a detachable acrylic dust cover, and makes the perfect centerpiece for stereo systems of any vintage.


Top-Shelf Connections

On the rear panel are two gold-plated pin-type RCA phono terminals to output the left and right channel signals to your external phono preamp, stereo amplifier, or A/V receiver. There’s also a dedicated grounding post to eliminate hum.


Ready to Roll Right Out of the Box

The CP-1050 ships with everything needed to play vinyl on your existing stereo system (just be sure to check your receiver has phono inputs before purchase). Install the cartridge, set the tracking pressure as specified in the
product manual, connect the turntable using the supplied cable, and you're ready to relive the magic of vinyl in all its glory.
