GEM Dandy turntables and accessories are manufactured in Memphis, Tennessee. 

GEM Dandy turntables and analog accessories are defined by high performance at a price that is lower than you might expect.

For nearly five decades, George Merrill has had a well-earned reputation for designs that represent his ability to take engineering just one step further.  These designs have been called everything from inventive to innovative, but in every case they are proof of his ability to design and build a better turntable.

His GEM Dandy PolyTable models go one step further in turntable design by offering nearly unbeatable resonance control and energy management at a price that most can afford.  An outboard speed controller comes standard on two models and is an option on the third.  It is a nearly state-of-the art component in terms of performance, and it comes at a fair and modest price.

For anyone who wants exceptionally accurate playback with an exceptionally low noise floor, and who does not have many thousands of dollars to spend, the GEM Dandy PolyTable models are the right choice.

The PolyTable Standard offers class leading performance at a very reasonable price.  For a relatively small difference in price, the PolyTable Super offers improved performance over the PolyTable Standard by including the Digital Motor Drive, adding a more massive platter, adding George Merrill’s liquid suspended motor (borrowed from the Merrill-Williams R.E.A.L. turntable), and by accommodating a 12 inch tonearm.

The latest entry in the PolyTable line, the PolyTable Signature is nearly the equal of the highly regarded Merrill-Williams turntable, but at less than half the price.  Features include the Digital Motor Drive, liquid suspended drive motor, and a more massive double plinth configuration.  The PolyTable Signature is truly a bargain in high end hi-fi today.

All three PolyTable models can accommodate tonearms from 9 inches to 12 inches in length.  We offer a selection of excellent tonearms in money saving package deals.  See the details about this below.

PolyTable Signature Turntable

The PolyTable Signature offers performance close to the Merrill-Williams R.E.A.L. turntable at a significantly lower price.  Starting from the basic concept of the original PolyTable, George Merrill has used his knowledge of vibrational energy management to design a turntable that goes far beyond anything in its price range.

The Signature features a double plinth with the liquid-suspended motor mounted on the base plinth section for further isolation, and the tonearm and bearing on the upper plinth.  Other features are a two piece platter system, included Digital Motor Drive system, and the Merrill R.C.C. record mat bonded to the platter.

It’s little wonder that George Merrill’s turntables keep winning one award after another, and that they are among the most sought after turntables on the market.

PolyTable Standard Turntable

 

The PolyTable Standard is designed for the music lover who wants for a quality turntable but is on a tight budget. The simple design criteria are to provide a quality product for anyone purchasing their first true high performance turntable, and for anyone seeking a “last” turntable that will perform at a true hi-fi level for many years to come.

The GEM Dandy PolyTable is offered as a cost-saving package with a number of quality tonearms  as detailed below, or you can have your PolyTable Standard drilled to mount your own tonarm.  A high quality and highly accurate speed controller is also available, as is the GEM Dandy PolyWeight record weight, which improves the performance of the PolyTable Standard at a low price.

Features of the PolyTable Standard includes leveling feet and a two piece platter system featuring Merrill’s R.C.C. record mat.  The GEM Dandy Digital Motor Drive is offered as an option on the PolyTable Standard model.

Also From George Merrill – The GEM Dandy R.C.C. Record Mat

The R.C.C. (Rubber Cork Compound) record mat is exactly what the name implies.  It is a durable compound devised by George Merrill to effectively damp and drain resonances from the record during playback, and to prevent outside resonances from reaching the record through the platter. 

We highly recommend this mat for ANY turntable that needs a platter mat.  This is the best mat that we’ve used here at any price on a number of turntables.  The Gem Dandy R.C.C. Record Mat is 3 millimeters (1/8 inch) thick.

Retail Price:  $59.00
