Giglio sets a new standard

redefining the very concept of tradition: shapes, materials and the very essence of air and ground are the ingredients of such unique audio creation.

Crafted with a 50mm curved plinth in solid Italian Walnut, 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, 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.

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.

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 - placed into the acrylic plinth - 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

Giglio & Donatello on the pages of Hifi+, a great review straight from the UK!

"The Gold Note is a smooth performer, with an effortless style that makes it easy to forget the mechanics of the process and enjoy the music...there was a real vista of sound that revealed the quality of playing and drew me into the music in no uncertain terms.
The interplay of the violins was particularly engaging and this combined with the turntable’s inherent grasp of tone made for a real musical treat"

NOVO magazine (previously Canada Hi-Fi) has been having fun with Giglio: 

"Gold Note’s Giglio turntable, with the B7 tonearm, and the Dynavector 10X5 cartridge delivered a deeply layered, immersive, and musical sound. It’s 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 ‘tables."

VUmétre had a great time testing our Giglio, here's the conclusions:

"Summarize this article with something like 'It's beautiful, it plays well and it moved us' could sound as the last of clichés, but that's exactly what happened with Giglio. It is everything you might imagine and should expect from an High-End Italian product. Classy under every point of view and with solid performances, it's well positioned on the price tag for such quality. Giglio is a real seducer and its beautiful lines will guide you toward many refined listening sessions. It's so difficult to resist this analog miracle!"
