The Walker Audio Turntable continues to be among the top tier of statement level turntables available in the world. Jonathan Valin of The Absolute Sound has called this turntable “the single most neutral and lifelike source component I’ve yet heard or had the pleasure of using.” (TAS Issue 202) It has been his reference for over a decade.
David Robinson, editor of Positive Feedback , says of the Walker turntable: “The Walker Audio Proscenium Gold Signature is the finest turntable system that I have ever heard, bar none.” (Positive Feedback, Issue 23)
The Walker Audio turntable lives among a small handful of what can be described as the greatest turntables ever designed and manufactured. It is legendary in high end audio. And, if purchased new today in it’s current Black Diamond V iteration, it comes at a legendary price also.
You have an opportunity to purchase this EARLIER generation turntable, that is fully upgradeable to current specifications, for 1/5th the current retail price.
I am selling this turntable due to my planned retirement and downsizing which will eliminate my dedicated listening space and requires me to sell much of my reference audio system.
This offering includes the following components and updates:
- Integrated air bearing linear tracking tonearm
- External motor controller for precise speed control, 33/45rpm
- Most recent updated pneumatic suspension
- Newly released oil-free, always-on, no maintenance air supply

Asking price: $22,500
- Precision motor controller
- Original shipping crates
- Prologue Top Platform, a 75lb 3″ thick maple top platform that sits on top of your existing rack* [this is the Top Platform, not the Rack]

A note about the photo at the top of the page: This photo is of an identical Walker Audio Proscenium Gold Turntable, not the actual unit offered for sale. For serious purchase candidates, I will arrange for photographs of the actual unit if requested.
