Gold Note Giglio turntable NEW

The Giglio features a 50mm thick, curved plinth of lacquered chosen for its exceptional elasticity, strength and high density being at the same time evocative of Italian Tuscan sea, one of the most recognizable places in the world, creating a strong union between the finished product and the skilful local craftsmen who made the plinth by hand.

The curved plinth is precisely cut in the inner side to find the perfect tuning of the wood interfaced with a 3mm stainless steel shaped board threaded to the massive wooden curved plinth in 16 strategic points tune the whole structure completed with 20mm thick black polished acrylic handles the electronic board of the turntable lowering the total frequency resonance as well.

The curved wooden plinth is been elaborated after years of research at the Gold Note engineering labs in order to replace a much bigger mass plinth having a traditional rectangular shape structure; the extra rigidity obtained by the unparalleled curves allows to have a sophisticated technical design and a great look as well.

The Giglio features the same 12Volt synchronous motor developed for Mediterraneo. The PWM – Pulse Width Modulator – design transforms the power voltage in AC-DC-AC mode, enabling the best coupling of the two AC semi-waves for a perfect coupling literally annulling any motor resistance and vibration allowing the highest motor torque at the same time. The Power Supply of the motor electronically control the 33 and 45rpm and the fine speed adjust keeping the selection permanently in the turntable memory even without AC power.

The new perfectly polished hourglass shaped motor pulley also allows the turntable belt spins very smoothly reducing the wow& flutter and noise as never before.
The 80mm long platter Spindle/Bearing is made of best-hardened steel and bronze for top quality audio performance. The platter bearing is recessed into the acrylic top plinth to keep the platter as closest as possible to the turntable structure reducing the turbulences generated by the rotation.

The 23mm platter made of black Sustarin, a special material based on PTE polymer; rigid but dead at the same time, it features an extraordinary ability to reduce vibration feedback while the high mass helps a regular rotational stability.

The platter is designed to stay only 3mm closed to the turntable plinth. Such small platter/plinth interference allows reducing turbulence featuring the greatest noiseless functionality.

The new Giglio as well as the Gold Note Mediterraneo turntable redefine the traditional skill of transferring into an audio item the essence of the “air” and “ground” from which the main inspiration of its design comes.
From the outset a special shape not only influences sound performance but also reminds one of the elegance and impetuous power of sea waves. The choice of materials shows a dedication to the native ground going beyond the musical dimension of the product.

Wooden Curved Plinth Exotic Design

50mm handcrafted curved lacquered wood design enables extra rigidity and vibrational control.

Triple tuned Plinths for the best audio purity

The Giglio plinth is made of 3 tuned plinths composed by 50mm curved wood, 3mm stainless steel and 20mm black acrylic, interfaced each other to have the best vibrational control.

Innovative Turntable Motor Power Control
The Giglio features a power control generator based on PWM technology – Pulse Width Modulation. The PWM power drive generates the power AC-DC-AC enabling the best coupling of the two AC semi-wave for a perfect coupling literally annulling any motor resistance and vibration while allowing the highest motor torque the same.

High Precision Platter Bearing/Spindle
The Giglio features a 80mm long platter bearing/spindle with one of the best coupling tolerance available on the market. The spindle is made of the hardest carbon rectified steel hardened to guarantee a perfect working fluidity. The bearing is made of polished bronze with a tolerance of 2/100 millimetre to guarantee the smoothest platter rotation.
The platter is designed to stay only 3mm closed to the turntable plinth. Such small platter/plinth interference allows reducing turbulence featuring the greatest noiseless functionality.

Ultra Dead Design Platter
The Ultra Dead Platter of the Giglio is made of a special PTE polymer guarantees a stable rotational stability working even against the vibration feedback to enhance the best audio performance.
