Rui Borges Turntables
Rui Borges Turntables is a Portuguese brand of turntables which are personally designed and built from scratch by the master craftsman Rui Borges.
Rui built his first turntable - the RSB Reference - in 1990 and finally showed it at the Portuguese Audioshow in 1995 with great success and praise by Audiophiles.
In 1996 the Portuguese magazine "Audio" published a review of this turntable by Jorge Gonçalves, the magazine's editor-in-chief. In the following year it was awarded "Analogue product of the year" by Audio. Encouraged and motivated by Rui Borges presented another turntable - the Ultimo - in 2000, which was also very successful and finally turned into the Pendulum II as we know it.
The smart choice of materials used in all the the key elements of the turntable, the assembly methods, the absence of vibration, the quietness and the rotational stability are 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 stellar sound quality of these turntables.
