Testimonials (on all Well Tempered turntables)

“If you value and respect countless hours of experimentation and outside-the-box thinking, and if you are mainly outcome-orientated, this could be your ‘table. In fact, if you enjoy listening to records at all, a demo of the Well Tempered Simplex Turntable is certainly worth your time. It just might change your beliefs regarding analog playback — just as it did for me.

“This latest version of William Firebaugh’s inventive turntable and arm design has ultra-quiet background, superbly non-resonant, neutral sound, complete speed stability, surprising bass extension, easy setup and operation, and compatibility with a wide range of cartridge…overall, the high end at a budget price.”
– The Absolute Sound

“Like other WTL products of my experience, the Well Tempered Amadeus Mk.II Turntable had a musically involving sound—good timing, very good momentum and flow—combined with the sorts of spatial accomplishments and lack of obvious colorations that I associate with more traditional high-end audio products… the Amadeus pulled just as much color from the groove as my Garrard 301-based player.”
– Art Dudley, Stereophile (read the review)

“This cleverly conceived turntable does what few others can. It draws you into the music and holds you in its grip. So whether the tunes are upbeat and lively, or dark and mysterious, you feel like it’s there in the room and that you’re missing out if you don’t pay attention.”

“it was the analog source that captivated most. Its sound was relaxed, natural and effortless but immaculately timed and tonally inspiring.”

Well Tempered Simplex Turntable 3

Winner – Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award

“The new Well Tempered Amadeus reaches stratospheric heights of performance at a moderate price… The Amadeus seems simultaneously a bargain and something of a miracle… it is hard to fault the smooth, silent, dynamically linear, undistorted, speed stable, vinyl damped sound of this turntable”
 – Robert E. Green, The Absolute Sound

“One could spend a lot more money, but I would listen carefully to the Amadeus first. It is something exceeding fine, far beyond its modest price.

 – Robert E. Green, The Absolute Sound (read the review)

“I can say two things. The first is that the Amadeus sounds better than any turntable I’ve heard. The second is that, given its low price compared to many turntables, the Amadeus is the best value turntable out there. The quality of sound for the price is outstanding. The Well Tempered Amadeus is special. It’s one of those products that makes reviewing hi-fi so very exciting. The Amadeus is my product of the year.”
