The Gold Note Mediterraneo turntable shows with a superb aplomb all its Italian flair and distinction coming from its strong Tuscan origins, combining pure beauty to the greatest attention for technical perfection. This turntable comes from Florentine roots and elevates itself far beyond the simple musical dimension: it’s an ode to musical passion and dedication to vinyl.
Every detail of the Mediterraneo enhances the turntable’s ultra-rigid structure resulting in a refined technical innovation achieved through elegant smooth lines. The 60mm thick curved plinth design is based on the Catenary curve, a highly efficient concept developed by our greatest inspiration, the Renaissance pillars, artists and scientists Michelangelo Buonarroti and Galileo Galilei.
Made of aged Italian walnut hardwood, the chassis benefits from the quality of such a unique and noble material: exceptional elasticity, strength and high density. The triple plinth structure is reinforced by a compelling 20mm board in polished acrylic and a 3mm thick stainless steel board to improve its exceptional dampening quality and stability. The wooden base sits on three large elegantly shaped and adjustable spikes made of anodised aluminium.
The 45mm thick high-precision platter made of Ultra-Dampened POM is belt- driven and powered by the very best proprietary control system developed on a Quadral-Core micro-controller enhanced by an audio converter. The power control reshapes the AC wave to perfectly drive the 12V synchronous motor removing vibrations while improving its torque to deliver the greatest dynamic and the finest detail. The Power Supply Unit electronically controls the 33,3 rpm and 45rpm mode as well as the fine speed adjustment, storing all settings into memory.
