A new paradigm...

Monaco 2.0

Revolutionary.


Unparalleled speed accuracy, superior vibration isolation, and stability to deliver a profound sonic experience.


The Monaco 2.0’s innovative proprietary direct-drive, fluid damped motor system takes analog replay to previously unprecedented levels.

While the Monaco 2.0 may look deceptively simple, contained within this svelte chassis and minimal footprint is the world’s most advanced direct-drive motor and optical encoder system.  The Monaco's revolutionary direct drive design and advanced/state of the art decoder delivers superlative speed accuracy (peak speed deviation lower than 0.0001%) – rendering your music with greater clarity and depth.

The result: the most accurate, yet communicative record replay platform in existence – a record player that delivers the true musical potential of vinyl records.  

If hearing is believing, hearing this table is knowing.
