Thread: Torqueo ordered

  1. #1

    Torqueo ordered

    This morning i order a Torqueo turntable,the compact color Marsala
    with his T base and the mat of copper CU 2900

    Will arrive in december,i never saw and listen,but i am near sure will be good sound

    I think to put tonearm Saec 506 that Torqueo buy second hand and rebuild like knew changing the knife made from a Jeweler
    I take immediately the T base,is ready to put under the Schopper 124

    Idea is to have Torqueo with Saec 506 and Coralstone diamond
    I hope a good sound

    Hey Gian, good work.
    I did email them a while back, but no reply, I guess the lack of English speaking and no UK distributor doesnt help.
    Im not sure I could buy a tt without hearing it first.

    I am agree with you,but speaking a lot with them,checking the production quality,motor and plint quality and good price convinced me on buying
    Sure will be very good,for his cost,but i don't know which will be the real quality

    Hi Spirit,
    i see you have Strain Gauge,you can connect directly to power amp without connect to line preamp if you have g210 with volume?
