Vinyl love! The AMG V12 Turntable is here to remind you that the analag vs. digital which-sounds-better debate hasn’t really gone anywhere. The uncompromisingly designed $16,000 Viella 12 is a precision machine, outfitted with things like a machined aircraft-grade aluminum housing with retractable steel-copper spikes in aluminum feet, built-in spirit level and optional hardwood trim; 33.3, 45, and 78 speeds (that’s rpm) with electronic on/off, speed change, and speed fine adjust; a patented dual-pivot tonearm bearing that is also used in the rotor heads of helicopters; and loads of high grade copper wiring (follow the link for loads more specs). The is the first in a new in-house line from Werner Roeschlau and his Analog Manufaktur Germany, fabricators of high-end turntable parts for over a decade. Their multi-storey, analog-meets-digital Bavarian factory employs Computer Aided Design and CNC machines alongside old school analog tools like lathes and drill presses, and they everything themselves. Audio purists, vinylheads, turntable geeks…unite!
