The Esoteric Grandioso Turntable T1 is launched and is celebrating its 35TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HIGH-END JAPANESE BRAND
The ultimate in High End Vinyl anyone? The Japanese HiFi company Esoteric has launched its first-ever turntable to celebrate its 35th anniversary, it is now available after its unveiling at High-End Munich earlier this year.
The first turntable in Esoteric’s history, the Esoteric Grandioso T1 features a new patent-registered contact-free drive mechanism, called the Esoteric MagneDrive System. Esoteric was created 35 years ago as the high-end offering from TEAC.
ESOTERIC MAGNEDRIVE SYSTEM
To achieve a fully silent rotation at an “extraordinarily exact” rotation speed, the contact-free Esoteric MagneDrive System was created to synchronize the rotations of the magnetic driver and the platter.
This is accomplished by removing mechanical contacts from the turntable, such as the belt, rim, or motor, to prevent the speed inconsistencies that these can bring about. Additionally, you don’t need to repair any parts like belts thanks to the MagneDrive system.
The Esoteric Grandioso T1 Turntable’s acoustic qualities can also be altered manually by adjusting the distance between the platter and the driver, which is done using the Micrometer knob on the front panel.
