Maximus NEO review on AnalogPlanet 01/2023

“It’s a well-built machine that’s dead-quiet, fast off the mark, super-resol­ving, and uber-lively. In short, it’s a maxi­mally great turn­table well worth checking out. Gut gemacht!”

AnalogPlanet Gruvy Award

In January 2024 Acoustic Signa­ture’s Maximus NEO turn­table won Analog­Planet’s Gruvy Award for the best tested gear of 2023!

“…an excep­tional turn­table. The Maximus NEO table bettered other compa­rable models in its nearby class in terms of dead-silent sound and black back­grounds, playing LPs with sweeter tone, more natural flow, and a cleaner, if lighter low-end…”

hifi i muzyka award of the year 2024 for the Maximus NEO

“The sound capabi­lities allow to typify it as a signal source even in a very ambi­tious system. Maximus Neo plays with flair, dynami­cally, with a filled and weigh­ted sound and a rich palette of satu­rated colors. It brilliantly reveals the power and exten­sion of the analog bass, the comple­xity of the midds and the varied pear­liness of the treble. Class act!”

Maximus NEO, TA-1000 NEO and MCX3 in Absolute Sound 09/2022

“A turn­table is all about spin­ning vinyl with speed accu­racy and minimal bearing chatter. The Maximus NEO does an excel­lent job of that.”

“DO is con­vin­ced that the Maximus Neo can hold its own in the company of far more expen­sive systems and esti­mates that it offers about 70% of the sound quality of the most elite systems. That’s high praise, indeed. A remar­kable achieve­ment at its asking price — and winner of our Turn­table of the Year Award.”

Maximus NEO test report in Stereo 07/2021

“The southern German analog specia­list presents a turn­table that has a thought-out design down to the smal­lest aspects and is manu­fac­tured exqui­sitely. The dyna­mically grip­ping and at the same time finely differen­tiated sound with compact, accu­rately ordered spatial imaging corres­ponds to the flawless finish in its finesse.”
