Pianosa offers a unique combination of audio purity, high quality materials and Italian design
Our journey started almost 25 years ago and we‰۪ve been focusing on analog ever since because we are in love with vinyls. Such passion defines all our creations, especially turntables, that we always design with great care and attention to make sure that every single detail become part of a wonderful source of music.This creations redefine the classic idea of turntable through innovative shapes and quality materials to merge tradition and technology in order to provide the best musical experience for all the senses.
Pianosa features a shaped curved plinth of Italian hardwood Walnut that reminds of the Tuscan landscape and its warm sea are manufactured by our local craftsmen who hand-made every single plinth from precious woods, a material chosen for its exceptional strength and high density.
The elegant curves of Pianosa enhance the turntable ultra rigid compact plinth, combining and refining the technical design with elegant, smooth lines. The wooden 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 performances and Pianosa features electronic controls for 33/45rpm mode and for speed fine adjustments, any adjustment is saved and stored in memory even when unplugged from the AC.
Thanks to our proprietary 12Volt synchronous motor based on PWM technology [Pulse Width Modulation], that transforms the voltage from AC to DC and back to AC, the two AC semi-waves are perfectly coupled to minimise vibrations while providing high torque.
The platter Spindle/Bearing system is made of the best hardened steel and bronze to grant superior precision, the platter is made of Poly-Vinyl (23mm thick) - rigid but dead at the same time - and the new polished hourglass pulley is shaped to improve the transmission:
every detail is designed to reduce vibrations, noise and wow&flutter with improved rotational stability.
Extra Rigid & Dampened
Pianosa is built with a multiple plinth structure, with a 50mm curved plinth in Italian Walnut hardwood slats and a lacquered MDF plinth for optimal structural stability. The curved wooden plinth is reinforced with a stainless steel board and the black lacquered MDF plinth to achieve the best vibrational control.
Quadral-Core Power Supply
Pianosa features a proprietary power control generator based on Quadral-Core micro controller enhances an audio converter completely reshape the AC wave to perfectly drive a 12V synchronous motor to virtually cancel vibrations and improve torque power for greatest dynamic and details resolution both.
Pianosa features our high precision platter bearing/spindle design with the best coupling tolerance available today: the rectified spindle is made of hardened chromed steel and the chromed ball bearing guarantee perfect rotational stability and low noise.
Ready to play out of the box, the set up includes a dedicated Gold Note B-5.1 tonearm and a custom moulded transparent polycarbonate Dust Cover easy removable with its new innovative detachable hinges.
