A.J. Conti’s mission for the Basis Inspiration was clear from the beginning: To design a turntable system that performs as closely as possible to the unequaled Basis Work of Art at a more accessible cost.

Listening to the Work of Art is a revelatory audio experience. Music lovers comment that listening becomes a musical event rather than a listening session. It was imperative that the Inspiration display a meaningful degree of this “event feel”.
