Borges Turntables is a Portuguese brand of turntables which are personally
designed and built from scratch by Rui Borges.
Rui built his first turntable in 1990-RSB Reference -and displayed
it at the Portuguese Audioshow in 1995.
It was highly praised by the audiophile milieu. In 1996 a review of
this turntable was published in the Portuguese magazine "Audio". Its
author was Jorge Gonçalves, the magazine's editor-in-chief. On the
following year, it was distinguished by this magazine as the "Analogue
product of the year". Encouraged and motivated by it, Rui
Borges presented in 2000 another project - Ultimo - which was also
very successful. The judicious choice of materials used in each key-point,
the assembly methods, the absence of vibration, the rotational stability,
is the result of uncountable hours of research and experimentation.
Recognised for the quality and high performance of his turntables,
Rui's quest for precision and his outstanding and unique attention
to the smallest details in each of his projects are the secret
behind the excellent sound quality of these turntables.
