AMG GIRO G9 TURNTABLE
"…the AMG seems to have it all going on: exquisite style, superb build quality, ease of setup, ease of use, and the ability to steer cartridges and play records with the world's finest record players." - Herb Reichert, Stereophile USA
“It allows the music to breathe and the musicians to emote, and the results are remarkably entertaining, never less than engaging and occasionally exhilarating. . . the most musically satisfying set-and-forget 'table I’ve ever used." - Roy Gregory, The Audio Beat USA
“Simply put, the AMG Giro is the best turntable I know of for less than $14,000...” - Jack Roberts, Dagogo USA
The Giro G9 turntable brings AMG’s sonic and visual excellence to a larger audience. Conceived by AMG founder Werner Roeschlau, the Giro is brilliantly realized by managing director Julian Lorenzi. Sharing the key design elements of the highly regarded AMG Viella “V12”, the Giro “G9” is entirely manufactured in AMG’s Bavarian factory.
The Giro’s “double circle” plinth is machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and features both 33 and 45 RPM via electronic control. Both platter and bearing housing are CNC machined from POM, a high tech synthetic. The belt-driven platter uses the decoupled spindle design of the highly-acclaimed Viella V12 turntable and shares the high-mass stainless steel machined pulley of the V12, coupled to a precision Swiss-made DC motor. The platter bearing, a hydrodynamically lubricated radial 16mm axle with PFTE thrust pad and integral flywheel, is a scaled version from the Viella. The Giro uses the 9W2 9” tonearm with the identical, revolutionary bearing design of the 12J2, scaled for the arm length and the Giro’s smaller footprint.
The Giro from Analog Manufaktur Germany is an elegant high performance turntable providing exceptional music reproduction and value for vinyl enthusiasts.
