The 2 arm­bases of the
Montana NEO

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

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).

Control panel

Control panel

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

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.

Silencer modules of the Montana NEO

Silencer

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.
