Turntable with 9” B5.1 Tonearm
Giglio is one of Gold Note’s best creations and – with Mediterraneo – redefines the traditional design of a turntable through innovative shapes, quality materials and technical solutions to merge tradition and technology. The particular curves of the base result in extra rigidity and allow Giglio to achieve a superior performance delivering pure sound and details to recreate the musical event. The wooden base is also coupled with a 20mm thick board in polished Acrylic and reinforced with a 3mm stainless steel platform lowering the total frequency resonance. Enhancing the turntable’s ultra-compact structure, combining and refining the technical design with elegant, smooth lines: that’s how we created Giglio. The Walnut curved plinth is in fact coupled with a 3mm stainless steel board then completed with a 20mm thick black polished acrylic board that integrates the electronic system. The newly polished pulley with its hourglass design allows the belt to spin smoothly reducing even more of the Wow&Flutter and the rumble. Even the platter is designed to minimize vibrations with noiseless functionality and low platter/plinth distance for greater stability.
The Power Supply of the 12 Volt Swiss Made synchronous motor has been developed to guarantee fantastic audio performances. Thanks to our proprietary power control generator based on a Quadral-Core micro-controller, Giglio can effectively control vibrations and deliver high torque for the greatest dynamic and resolution. The Power Supply Unit electronically control the 33rpm and the 45rpm mode and the speed fine adjustment, storing the settings in memory.
Giglio features a 33mm thick platter made of Sustarin and a high precision bearing/spindle design with ultra-strict matching tolerances. The spindle is made of rectified hardened chromed Steel and the bearing is in tungsten steel, both engineered to obtain great rotational stability and low noise. The platter in black Sustarin – a special material based on POM plastic polymer, rigid and high dampened – reduces vibrations and improves the stability.
