For some years, it has been J.Sikora’s wish to enable a wider range of audio enthusiasts to reach the experience that the our premium products deliver. The newest model in the range, the J.Sikora Initial, emerged from this desire.

To achieve a more readily-attainable price point, the company’s engineers reduced the number of materials and overall complexity of the Initial, while maintaining the superb performance you’ve come to expect from J.Sikora. We developed alternative methods of resonance control, helping to create a turntable—a new leader in its price range—based on the fundamental elements of our premium models. The all-important main bearing, motor, and controller—the core elements necessary to maintaining excellent speed stability—are all sourced from our upper-range models.

All US Initial turntables are bundled with the upgraded power supply from the Standard line and are available in your choice of silver or black finishes.
