Giglio sets a new standard
redefining the very concept of tradition:Â shapes, materials and the very essence of
airÂ and groundÂ are the ingredients of such unique audio creation.
Crafted with a 50mm curved plinth in solid Italian Walnut,Â Giglio is our way to offer you all our experience and heritage, to deliver the taste of our landscape with a strong union between smooth Tuscan hills, Mediterranean sea waves and the skill of local craftsmen who hand-made every single plinth from precious woods,Â chosen for its exceptional elasticity, strength and high density.
Years of research at Gold Note´s engineering labs went into designing the curved wooden plinth: our goal was to evolve the traditional rectangular plinth structure - and we did it! Every curved plinth is precisely cut to find the perfect tuning between wood and steel.
a smooth performer, with an effortless style that makes it easy to forget the mechanics of the process and enjoy the music
The Walnut curved plinth is in fact coupled with a 3mm stainless steel board then completed with a 20mm thick black polished acrylic board that integrates the electronic system.
This particular curves result in extra rigidity and allow us to combine a refined technical design with elegant lines.
new polished hourglass-shaped pulley allows the turntable´s belt to spin smoothly, reducing even more wow&flutter and noise.
Even the platter is designed to take care of turbulence with noiseless functionality and low platter/plinth interference.

It is everything you might imagine and should expect from a High-End Italian product
The Power Supply unit electronically controls the 33/45rpm mode and the speed fine adjustments, storing in memory the selections even without AC power.
Giglio features the same 12Volt synchronous motor developed for Mediterraneo based on PWM [Pulse Width Modulator] technology where the power voltage is transformed in AC-DC-AC mode coupling perfectly the two AC semi-waves to cancel any motor resistance and vibrations smoothly reaching the highest torque possible.
The 60mm long platter Spindle/Bearing made of the best hardened steel and bronze grants superior performances while the recessed platter bearing -Â placed into the acrylic plinth -Â holds the platter suspended at 3mm from the plinth to reduce turbulence.
The thick platter in black Sustarin - a special material based on PTE that´s rigid and high dampening - reduces vibrations and improve rotational stability.

a breathtaking example of what happens when an established company that makes $100K+ vinyl rigs applies cutting-edge designs and advanced engineering knowledge to their more sensibly priced turntables
