Scheu (pronounced 'shoy', as in "boy") is looking back at an experience of more than 20 years in designing
high-quality record players that perform beyond their price.
These designs became well-known in DIY circles, and we can only be glad
that he brought his ideas into production. His concept and
designs have also inspired and spawned other turntable designs.
Scheu designs have had several reviews in the German press like H•rerlebnis, Klang &
Ton, Hifi & Records just to mention a few. In the international press,
the Premier MK1 was reviewed in The Absolute Sound (issue
132) which also led to the Golden Ear Award in 2001.
But it's acrylic and not some exotic material, one asks ? Sure it is,
but it's the sonic performance that counts. It also keeps the
price competitive. Furthermore, if one has experience with various
acrylic turntables, they all don't sound alike.
But it's so simple ? Well, that's one reason it sounds great :)
Of course, thought has been put into it.
