Turn­tables with a classic retro design are beco­ming increa­singly popu­lar. The new Verona NEO can carry up to two 9 to 12-inch tone­arms and thus offers all the possi­bili­ties that ambi­tious music lovers are looking for. In addi­tion, it has all the tech­nical refine­ments that its other brothers from the NEO series also have, such as a 2-motor drive concept, the DTD®-bearing and the exter­nal DMC-20 motor elec­tro­nics with AVC Level 3 and the CLD design. Its 50 mm thick platter includes 8 silencers.

The multi-sand­wich chassis of the Verona NEO offers greater rigi­dity and excel­lent acoustic proper­ties. The 3-point suspen­sion with the gel-damped feet specially deve­loped by Acoustic Signa­ture ensures optimum decoupling during record playback.

Test reports

“The Verona NEO offers perfor­mance that is truly refe­rence quality … This turn­table and these arms are every­thing you would expect from a top-shelf German manu­facturer. They’re beau­tifully made and presen­ted, and every­thing fits and works perfectly.”

“This drive opens up the music and enables us to expe­rience a live perfor­mance as vivid as a fire­work display. … Visually reminis­cent of players from the 70s and 80s, it repre­sents a “state of the art” techno­logy that has cata­pulted Acoustic Signa­ture to the absolute top of the world.”

Acoustic Signature Verona NEO and TA-2000 NEO review in Stereo 2/2024

“The Verona NEO is excel­lently capable of deli­vering sound images that are both spa­tially orga­nized and struc­tured in every possible way. It indeed proved unaf­fected by any chal­lenge we set to it in the liste­ning room. In fact, it main­tained its imper­tur­bable com­posure even when the loud­speakers right next to it were playing with rather high volumes. The turn­table didn‘t allow this to lead to any reso­nances in the sligh­test. In general, the lower frequen­cies turned out to be the icing on the cake in the already high-class perfor­mance of the Acoustic Signa­ture. The turn­table clearly benefits from its MDF-steel-multiplex-CLD back­bone, which has evi­dently been com­bined just right. Bass lines were not just clean, agile and con­toured. Rather, their springy elas­ticity, their pul­sating drive drove the repro­duction from the frequency cellar, which lite­rally gave it an extra por­tion of buoyant empha­sis and kick…”
