The philosophy of Torqueo Audio is to consider the record player a musical instrument, therefore, our principle is simple: “Harmonise material and technique” In fact, the mix of materials and architecture, combined with technical criteria, creates the desired sound result. Our aim is to gives the listener the emotional content of music, rejecting the current Hi-End trends that mortify the musicality of the sound message. It will never be the right sound if you first used to hear good live music. But it’s only few people who have this opportunity . Often you accept the convenience of digital instead of looking for the quality of the original recording. When we make a turntable, we want it sounds in an extraordinary way. This is not about an insane passion for the ‘hi-fi: it’s about getting closer to what musicians express during the recordings.

 Mechanics: the design of the mechanisms is the result of a 3-year study and scrupulous tests. All the mechanical and structural parts are fruit of CAD design and realised in Bronze (Gunmetal),  AISI 316 non-magnetic stainless steel, brass for musical instruments CuZn19Sn, top quality aluminium alloy (ergal), processed with CNC machines and very low tolerance laser.

The precise calibration of all the components allows obtaining very high movement precision and absolute noiselessness.
The mechanical rotation system is the heart of each turntable.
Listen to music from a vinyl record that runs on an ordinary mechanical, or listen this to adisc rotating on a strictly mechanical components made without compromise and with high precision motors, are without any doubts two different experiences.
We need an extraordinary mechanical to return to extraordinary performance of excellent musicians.
