Tornado NEO

Acoustic Signature

In the plan­ning phase of our NEO series, we wan­ted to pre­sent a super flexi­ble high mass turn­table that would unleash audio­phile forces far beyond its price range. Already pre­pared for 3 tone­arms and equip­ped with our very latest inno­vative tech­no­logies, the Acoustic Signa­ture Tornado NEO pro­vides a capti­vating musical perfor­mance that will take even the most expe­rien­ced analogists by storm.
