The Bellagio Reference is available as part of our exclusive Limited Edition turntable series. The Reference model derives directly from the flagship Bellagio Conquest featuring five plinths and a more compact size. The Reference combines an elegant Italian statement design with exceptional High-End audio performance. The black polished acrylic curved plinths house a high- quality rectified carbon steel platter spindle/bearing and massive ultra-dampened platter which permits perfect working fluidity allowing the purest extraction of every single note from the vinyl groove.
FIVE DIFFERENT CURVED PLINTHS AND A HOURGLASS MOTOR PULLEY
Reference features five different curved plinths directly deriving from the Bellagio Conquest to achieve great stiffness and indeformability and allow superb resonance feedback control: plinths are interfaced with aluminium spacers of different thickness joined together with custom machined solid blocks of aluminium and extra-large feet. For Bellagio Reference we chose one of the best platter bearing/spindle ever made, entirely built in carbon steel, hardened, rectified and polished to guarantee the best working fluidity. Polished bronze is used for the bearing housing, engineered to get a 1/100 millimeter matching tolerance with the spindle.
To power our best turntable series we implemented the best proprietary technology based on a PWM Pulse Width Modulator design: PWM transforms AC-DC-AC power coupling the motor coils in the best way to reduce motor resistance and vibrations while guaranteeing the highest torque. The new anti-resonating dampened hourglass shaped motor pulley stops the transmission of any vibration. It’s precisely machined and then polished to achieve perfectly smooth surfaces in order to guarantee low rotational noise and great performance.
CONTROL THE POWER OF YOUR MUSIC*
Bellagio Series is the only family of High-End turntables to feature a unique Power Control System: controlling the motor’s torque means to control your music by finely adjusting the turntable’s power characteristics. Selecting lower torque is indicated when playing ancient or chamber string music, where details strongly matter; while the maximum torque should be used for rock or symphonic music to enabling maximum dynamic. Power Control System is conveniently performed by remote control to let you choose the best sound directly from your listening point.
EXCLUSIVE FEATURE: REMOTE CONTROL*
The Bellagio Series is coming with a remote handset to let you always be in control of all functions: ON/OFF, speed change, speed control and power control.
