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.

Modern drive with 2 motors
The Verona NEO has 2 integrated, completely insulated AC-motors and a RPM-regulated double belt drive with speed fine adjustment for the subplatter.
AVC Level 3
The control panel is harmoniously integrated into the chassis. The Verona NEO is equipped with the external digital motor controller DMC-20 with a super stable multi-voltage power supply, featuring the innovative AVC-system at it’s highest level 3.
Elaborate chassis design
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.
“Perhaps it helps to point out that fans of rock styles will get on well with the nine-inch standard version, while lovers of symphonic music and opera should opt for twelve inches from the start. Or you can do as we did: Treat yourself to both tonearms – and then meticulously select the ideal pickup for each. A celebration for the analog heart!”
