New product reviews & tests

Double X NEO, TA‑500 NEO & MCX1

Review Double X NEO in Stereoplay 08/2021

“The Acoustic Signa­tures Double X is a joy for the eyes: perfect engi­nee­ring meets first-class finish and (optio­nally) macassar wood. However, with its uncompro­mising design the Double X is also a feast for the ears: the elegant, noble tone­arm guides any pickup safely, the platter rotates in a stoic, con­trol­led manner – the sonic result is beyond any doubt. The combo plays in an easy, trans­parent way, remains always clean and bullet-proof even with dynamic peaks. This is money well spent.”

Maximus NEO, TA‑500 NEO & MCX2

Maximus NEO test report in Stereo 07/2021

“The southern German analog specia­list presents a turn­table that has a thought-out design down to the smal­lest aspects and is manu­fac­tured exqui­sitely. The dyna­mically grip­ping and at the same time finely differen­tiated sound with compact, accu­rately ordered spatial imaging corres­ponds to the flawless finish in its finesse.”

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.”

“I can honestly say that, as of this wri­ting, I haven’t heard another that is higher in reso­lu­tion or more neu­tral in the deli­very of tim­bral, tem­po­ral, spa­tial, and dyna­mic details than the Invictus Junior.”

Montana review in hifi & records 01/2020

“The quality crafts­man­ship of the Mon­tana is unim­peach­able, the same applies to its sound po­ten­tial … it can distin­guish itself as a master of atmos­pheric repre­sen­ta­tion – a turn­table to dream of!”
