With the CP-1050, Onkyo offers a turnkey solution for audiophile-level analogue sound with less hassle and expense. There’s never been a better time to rekindle your passion for collecting and listening to records.


CP-1050 features a smooth and stable direct drive controlled by a quartz-lock system. The aluminium tonearm ships with a quality MM cartridge, and thanks to an innovative counterweight system and detachable head-shell, can also accept most popular aftermarket cartridges, 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 analogue format.

The player also includes a detachable acrylic dust cover, which makes the perfect centrepiece for stereo systems of any vintage.

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.
