From First look,the look is very good and construction is the top
The platter is aluminium and there is on a big ring of copper.
He gave to me a mat of leather,they have 3 mat of leather,light,medium and heavy and can change the sound
Its very heavy,only the Pilastro arm of this Limited is 12 kg.
I will put Saec 506 and will try with GFS

Next week i will start the trial
I hope good sound

What an analog adventure you are having!

Maybe a direct drive to round out the fun?

Congratulazioni Gigi... finalmente vedo che il Torqueo è arrivato così come il Vyger.

You can start a great match with two great turntables, all Italian made, we're proud of this, but I'm curious to know about sonic signatures; overall the two are very different ... tangential arm vs traditional steel 12"... about cartridges... which choice will you use?
ciao

Are 2 days i listen Torqueo with SPU A 95 and i like a lot.
TT is completly silent,and is incredible the dynamic and rhythm,natural and musical with voice and jazz and impressive with rock and pop.
I will try with a better cart like Coralstone or GFS to understand until will arrive

Also SAEC 506 seems very good,SPU usually are little roll off,but with Saec are very open with details.

No comparison with my Schopper with Koetsu arm,could be Koetsu arm also is not very good.
Really impressive

Very impressive visually Gian, thanks for posting..

I think SPU is not so good with 506 across entire 12" LP (inner grooves should be wonderful however!), I look forward to hearing how cart/headshell will sound in comparison when correctly set..
