Galibier Design is your one-stop source for all things vinyl.

Shown here is a a factory re-conditioned Serac turntable. 

Price varies due to the various armboard and other options, and is why we've coded it "Contact for Price".

Refer to our Specials page for combinations and pricing options, and click this link to contact us to discuss armboards, options, and to order.
  • Tonearms, cables and cartridges are extra. 
  • Ask us about packages.  Yes!  We still have some of our "Hot Rod Jelco tonearms" in stock.  Scroll to the photos in the gallery above, showing the 10 cartridges and 9 tonearms we carry.

  • Turntable base converted to accept Mk 1.5 armboard at any time
  • Serac PVC platter
  • Remanufactured bearing with ceramic thrust interface (same as Gavia/Stelvio)
  • Mk I pivoting armboard with no front pillar
  • New Gavia/Stelvio drive with Astron RS-7a linear supply

Upgrades & Options:

  • Basic Serac: $3,150 (Mk I armboard archtecture, Astron supply, & no front pillar)
  • Substitute Mk 1.5 armboard: add $250
  • Substitute Teddy Pardo linear supply: add $400
  • Add front pillar: add $250
  • Substitute Gavia platter: inquire for price

Comment:

The Basic Serac includes our Gavia / Stelvio drive system, but with a basic Astron power supply. 

We sell our Teddy Pardo powered drive system upgrades for $2,745 to owners of other turntables
(click here for details on that upgrade)

For $3,150 + the $400 Teddy Pardo power supply upgrade, you are getting a complete turntable for $800 over the cost this upgrade.

The story ...

On rare occasions, a Serac owner will upgrade their Serac platter to a Gavia.  When they do, we trade the customer's base, platter and bearing in exchange for a new base, Gavia platter, and matching bearing (platters & bearings are delivered in matched sets).  

We then take the traded-in base, platter and bearing and do the following to build a new turntable:
  • We modify the base to accept Mk 1.5 armboards.
  • We rebuild the bearing to our current ceramic thrust interface standard
  • We build a new drive system with an Astron linear supply
  • In "Maxed Out" configuration, we include a front pillar, a Mk 1.5 Gavia armboard, and substitute a Teddy Pardo linear supply for the Astron.
