Typhoon NEO

Acoustic Signature

The Typhoon NEO knows almost no com­pro­mises! Prepa­red for 3 tone­arms and equip­ped with the second-highest expan­sion stages of our newest drive sys­tem and chas­sis techno­logies, this high mass turn­table will pro­duce high audio­phile waves – in the most posi­tive sense. It is abso­lutely clear to us: The overall perfor­mance of the Acoustic Signa­ture Typhoon NEO is at a level that will beat some of the world’s best and much more expen­sive turn­tables.

Test review Typhoon NEO, TA-2000 NEO and MCX 3 in Audio 06/2021

“From the Typhoon Neo came the pure music. What sounds so trivial, is actu­ally the very great art which only a few can master. The Typhoon Neo is a master of sound.”
