Torqueo Audio presents a new turntable, the Exclusive P10 . A distinctive feature of the model is reflected in its name – the player is really exclusive, since it is planned to release only three copies of the turntable, but in fact only one is ready.
The design of the player uses the same principles of “modeling” resonances as in other models of the company. The manufacturer formulates its goal as follows – “not to disturb the harmonic richness of analog recording, while achieving a natural and realistic sound . “
To achieve this difficult goal, the Italians have developed a rather complex structure, combining several different solid wood, damping and elastic materials and metal elements. The table is mostly made of solid canaletto walnut and covered with six layers of varnish. Vibration isolation is provided by four supports made of a special anti-resonance alloy of iron, magnesium, nickel and carbon. The platter is made of pure copper. The turntable’s power supply is housed in a separate case, which eliminates unwanted vibrations from the turntable.
All these measures had a beneficial effect on the sound. The mid-frequency range, which is most sensitive to the human ear, has been freed from audible resonances. Apart from the arm and mechanics, all other parts of the turntable are handmade in Italy. The weight of the novelty reaches 45 kg. The player is delivered to the customer in a special wooden box.
The only existing copy for today is exhibited on the Italian site ebay for 8 thousand euros.
