The 2 armbases of the
The Montana NEO provides two adjustable armbases. 9 as well as 12 inch tonarms may be mounted. The tuntable offers a great configuration flexibility due to exchangeable armboards.
In the basic configuration of the Montana NEO, one armboard is invidually designed to fit the customers tonearm. The second is constructed as an empty armboard with a closed top. The armboard is exchangeable with ease to mount a second tonearm.
3 motors & AVC level 3
Three integrated, completely insulated AC-motors are powering the Montana NEO’s subplatter drive via double belts. The turntable reaches the highest level 3 of our innovative AVC technology (Automatic Vibration Control).
The elaborate design of this absolutely world class high mass turntable convinces with still quite compact dimensions. The remarkable Montana NEO features all of our innovative technologies…
The internal control panel of the Montana NEO is of clear shape. It is integrated in a space-saving manner into the left front foot of the turntable.
Constraint Layer Damping
The groundbreaking CLD technology is of utmost importance to Acoustic Signature. The Constraint Layer Damping achieves an outstanding reduction of platter vibrations on the Montana NEO.

The Montana Neo’s platter is equipped with 24 Silencer modules. The number, arrangement and layout was developed and optimized with the use of „state of the art“ CAD technologies. The brass modules are an attractive feature – but first of all they lead to an excellent damping and resonance absorption.
