Product specifications

The fully separated motor section incorporates both power supply and regulation, offering two speeds (33 1/3 and 45 rpm), selectable at the touch of a button, with blue LCD display and absolutely precise speed control. Worldwide flexibility means it can operate on power supplies from 110 V to 240 V. The combination of brushed aluminium and bulletproof plywood provides a truly non-resonant chassis.

Destined to become a new design classic. Innovative vision and timeless beauty: documented in an object for the lover of lifestyle and functionality, also now available in piano black lacquer.
We have fully refined it so that you can just admire and enjoy it.
