We just posted a YouTube video on how to set up a Clearaudio Concept turntable. Check it out!
Based on the award winning [AMG] 12J2 12” tonearm, the new 9” tonearm use a scaled version of the AMG Patented Dual-pivot bearing. The vertical bearing, similar to a technique used in helicopter rotors, utilizes 2 steel wires that allow fine azimuth adjustment while eliminating bearing play. The horizontal axle is hardened tool steel needle roller bearing. The aircraft grade aluminum armwand is anodized for resonance control. Identical to the 12J2, the new 9” tonearm’s internal wiring is multiple stranded high-purity copper, and features magnetic anti-skate and precision locking VTA adjustment. The 9W2, with a pivot to spindle distance of 211mm, is designed for the Linn LP-12, as the second arm on an AMG Viella 12 using the TWIN armboard with OVAL SME mount adapter, or other turntables that accommodate this length.
We are proud to announce another magazine cover for the AMG Viella 12, this time from HiFi+ in the UK.
Excerpt: “The turntable part of the deal is outstanding in and of itself. But that arm! It’s a world-class product, in a field where there are, if we are being truly honest, very few world-class products… when you couple a world-class tonearm with a turntable capable of outstanding performance in its own right, and is a perfect match for that arm, everything suddenly takes on a higher order of excellence.”
The AMG Giro turntable was recently awarded Best of Show - ‘Most Significant Analog Product Introductions’ (Munich High End 2014) by Jim Hannon of The Absolute Sound!
