Pianosa redefines the classic idea of the turntable through innovative shapes and quality materials, merging tradition and technology to provide the best musical experience for all the senses. The new turntable offers a unique combination of performance, high quality materials and Italian design.
With the Mediterraneo, Gold Note introduced a new category of turntables and then the company applied the same principles to Giglio and eventually to Pianosa, the new addition to the family. The Pianosa features a curved plinth in Italian hardwood Walnut that reminds of the Tuscan landscape and the way its rounded hills, warm sea and gentle waves are one thing with the skill of local craftsmen who hand-made every single plinth from precious woods, a material chosen for its exceptional strength and high density, the company states. Apart from aesthetics, though, the curves of Pianosa are, also, necessary to achieve extra rigidity and the Walnut plinth is also coupled with a 20mm thick MDF plinth and reinforced with a 3mm stainless steel plate.
The power supply unit is crucial to guarantee the best performance and Pianosa features electronic 33/45rpm selection and memory-saved fine speed adjustment. Motor is a 12Volt synchronous unit based on PWM technology that converts the voltage from AC to DC and back to AC, optimized for minimum vibrations and high torque.
The spindle/bearing assembly is made of the best hardened steel and bronze to grant superior precision (2/100 mm tolerance for the bearing), the platter is made of Sustarin (23mm thick) - a special PTE material, rigid but acoustically dead at the same time - and the new polished hourglass pulley is shaped to improve the belt drive transmission; every detail is designed to reduce vibrations, noise and wow&flutter with improved rotational stability, the company says.
Ready to play out of the box, the set up includes a dedicated Gold Note B5.1 tonearm and a custom made transparent ultra resistant removable polycarbonate dust cover.
