The Barzetti turntable
A stylish statement, with soft curved faces and corners. Making this highly engineered turntable a thing of true beauty and built for high quality music reproduction – offering a very high level of performance for a turntable in its price range. Using a newly designed 36mm thick (6Kg) solid turntable platter made of aluminum.
Machined with a diamond cutting tool ensures the finish is beautiful and the platter exceptionally well balanced for optimum performance.
The bearing is the heart of every turntable. Through fundamental research and development, Acoustic Signature have invented a bearing with the ideal performance characteristics of exact fit, extremely low noise, very low friction and long term stability. The result is a milestone in music reproduction at this price point.
More ways to amaze. The Barzetti is a consequent improvement of the older Designs to achieve a modern approach. It’s all combined with the award-winning performance, elegance, convenience and comfort that have made the Acoustic Signature Series so successful. The substantial one piece 50mm thick CNC milled MDF chassis forms the attractively designed base unit of this turntable, within which the motor and motor electronics are housed, along with the lower bearing housing and tone arm mount.
Get ready to experience the Barzetti – now perfectly suited to your own unique style. Perfect surface quality combined with the latest technology and flexibility.
The drive System
At the new Barzetti we combine a 50mm high density wooden plate with a 10 Layer piano finish. The piano finish is extremely perfect made and only to find in expensive piano’s. This is a perfect fit for the Tidorfolon bearing holding the platter and the exchangeable arm boards.
A new Alpha-S motor Electronic provides perfect speed stability and easy operation. The carefully made Aluminum platter is another part which makes the sound of a Barzetti so outstanding for his price class.
The Barzetti comes with a precisely manufactured Aluminum platter. He is produced out of a solid piece of soft Aluminum to improve his resonance behavior. The platter is additionally coated on the back side with a high damping material to get great results.
The thickness of 34mm gives him a weight of 6.4 kilogram. This high weight in combination with the smooth running Tidorfolon bearing is one unique reason of the great music experience the Barzetti provides.
We at Acoustic Signature believe that a motor system for a turntable should have enough energy to speed up the platter but not influence him during rotation. We reach that aim by using a European made Synchronous motor with our own Alpha-S State of the Art motor control.
This engine system is absolute stable in his rotation speed and in combination with the digital control easy to use and reliable.
The platter bearing is the heart of every turntable and Acoustic Signature have invented a bearing with the ideal performance characteristics of exact fit, extremely low noise, very low friction and long term stability. The platter bearing axle is manufactured from special hardened and precisely grinded steel. The bearing housing uses perfectly matched sinter bronze inserts which are self-lubricating. Our bearing design is developed to ensure a smooth run and tight fit of the axle.
We achieve this by using Sinter bushes and our Tidorfolon bearing ground. Here we have ultra-tight tolerances and our Tidorfolon bearing is lifetime maintenance free. We trust in this Bearing so it´s covered with a 10 year product warranty.
