Gold Note's top-of-the-range turntable hits the eye thanks to its strong Italian design inspired by the Tuscan territory. With its impeccable look it will immediately become the center of attention in your living room. Precious materials handcrafted by the most capable cabinetmakers, modeled with shapes that recall the Chianti hills and the Renaissance bridges over the Arno river in Florence created by masters like Michelangelo will take you to the most beautiful places in the world when you listen to your favorite music. By purchasing this turntable you will bring home a piece of Tuscany. Immerse yourself in the Italian sound and enjoy your music collection through this unique and fascinating source.
Our journey started 25 years ago designing our very first turntable because we love analogue and have a real passion for vinyl. Such passion defines all our creations and particularly turntables, driving us to design with great care and attention every single detail to create the most fascinating source of music.
Mediterraneo is the pinnacle of Gold Note: a creation that redefines the traditional design of turntables through innovative shapes, technical solutions and quality materials to merge tradition and technology and achieve the best musical experience.
Mediterraneo shows Italian flair and distinction in its strong Tuscan origins, combining beauty with the greatest attention to technical perfection.
Manufactured by our local craftsmen, the Mediterraneo is fully hand-made: designed with a 60mm curved plinth made of aged Italian Walnut chosen for its exceptional elasticity, strength and high-density, then coupled with a 20mm board made of black polished acrylic and finally reinforced with a 3mm stainless steel board to lower the frequency resonance.
Every detail of Mediterraneo enhance the turntable’s ultra-rigid structure, the result is a refined technical innovation achieved through elegant, smooth lines.
The Power of the 12 Volt Swiss made synchronous motor of Mediterraneo guarantees the best audio performances. Electronic 33/45rpm controls and fine speed adjustments are automatically stored in the controller memory even when the turntable is unplugged from the AC.
Thanks to our proprietary power control generator based on a Quadral-Core micro-controller, Mediterraneo is able to reshape the AC wave and minimise all vibrations while improving torque power for the greatest dynamic and resolution.
The new hourglass-shaped pulley made of polished aluminium allows the belt to spin as smoothly as possible, reducing Wow & Flutter and Rumble to extract and enjoy the finest details from the groove.
DAMPENING STRUCTURE WITH TRIPLE PLINTHS
Mediterraneo has a multiple plinth design that features a 60mm wooden base in Italian Walnut slats and a 20mm board in black polished Acrylic. The structure is reinforced by a 3mm stainless steel board to improve its exceptional dampening quality and stability. The plinth is available in three classic Italian finishes: Italian Walnut, Black Lacquered MDF and Real Gold Leaf.
INNOVATIVE POWER CONTROL
Mediterraneo is powered by our best proprietary control system developed on a Quadral-Core micro-controller and enhanced with an audio converter: this power control reshapes the AC wave to perfectly drive the 12V synchronous motor and cancel all vibrations while improving motor torque to deliver the greatest dynamic and the finest detail.
HIGH MASS & DEAD DESIGN PLATTER
The 45mm thick high-precision platter made of Sustarin is belt-driven and powered by our best proprietary control system developed on a Quadral-Core micro-controller enhanced with an audio converter: the power control reshapes the AC wave to perfectly drive the 12V synchronous motor removing vibrations while improving motor torque to deliver the greatest dynamic and the finest detail. The Power Supply Unit electronically controls the 33rpm and 45rpm mode as well as the speed fine adjustment, storing the settings in memory.
HIGH PRECISION SYSTEM
Mediterraneo features a 60mm long bearing/spindle design with the best coupling tolerance. The spindle is made of the hardest rectified carbon steel to achieve perfect working fluidity. The bearing system is made of polished bronze guaranteeing the smoothest platter rotation.
Ready to play out of the box, the bundle includes a dedicated Gold Note B-5.1 tonearm and a transparent custom made acrylic Dust Cover (easy to remove with our proprietary hinges system). Also included in the package is the high quality external power supply PST-1, with grounded IEC plug that allows using the favorite AC power cord in order to ideally tune the audio performance.
