Verona NEO Review by Image HiFi

The latest creation from the Swabian luxury manufacturer Acoustic Signature is called Verona NEO. It’s a mass-produced drive unit that has a completly unpretentious, classic look, doesn’t flaunt its technology and yet is a (sensitive) powerhouse that outclasses most of what our author has heard so far.

Visiting Acoustic Signature

With perfect weather replacing the previous day’s rain, we drove for a couple of hours past rolling hills and fields of bright yellow rapeseed flowers until we arrived in the small town of Süssen, home of Acoustic Signature turntables.

Invictus Neo Turntable and TA-9000 Neo Tonearm Review

THERE’S THAT WORD AGAIN—“NEW.” Probably the most overworked adjective in high-end audio and merchandizing in general, you see it everywhere and constantly—in advertisements, in manufacturer copy, in showroom banners (and salesmen’s mouths), and, God knows, in equipment reviews (including this one).

TA-7000 NEO Review

This tonearm can be called “The Feather”. The bearings and fit-and-finish are so smooth and refined that there is a barely perceptible feel of the arm when it is moved by hand.

Montana Neo Review

The Montana NEO combination broadcasts multiple opposing elements accurately at the same time, and there is no need to choose one or the other, which is an expression of quality.

Maximus NEO Review by Analog Planet

It’s a well-built machine that’s dead-quiet, fast off the mark, super-resolving, and uber-lively. In short, it’s a maximally great turntable well worth checking out. Gut gemacht!

Tornado Neo Review by Fidelity

The Acoustic Signature Tornado Neo is definitively a musical all-round­er. Every moment you spend in its company, you can’t help but notice the extensive technical experience of its developer who extracted the maximum analog enjoyment out of a turntable, but without mixing in any artificial gimmickry.

Acoustic Signature Hurricane Neo Review

In the eye of the hurricane, utmost peace and quiet are known to be found. With the Hurricane Neo from Acoustic Signature, we encountered a turntable whose bulletproof housing shrugs off any onslaught. The true refinement, however, lies in its bright solutions.

The Montana NEO Review from Stereophile

Acoustic Signature is not an overnight sensation, nor are its turntables driven by dental floss. If you’re not a Frank Zappa fan, you probably have no idea what any of that means, so please Google it.

Acoustic Signature Tornado Neo Review

Acoustic Signature has been updating its turntables, and its Torando Neo proves that analog excellence is achieved not by casting magic spells, but by deploying sophisticated technology.

Typhoon NEO Turntable And TA-5000 Tonearm Review

I’ll just say that during my time with the Acoustic Signature Typhoon NEO turntable, TA-5000 arm, and that little number by Acoustical Systems called the Palladian cartridge, I frequently questioned my sanity—it was THAT good.

Double-X and TA-5000 Review

The Acoustic Signatures Double X is a joy for the eyes: perfect engineering meets first-class finish and (optionally) macassar wood.

Typhoon Neo & TA-2000 Neo Review

Maximus Neo & TA-5000 Neo Review

The Maximus Neo from Acoustic Signature comes along looking heavy, massive and solid – just like a hard little rock.

Acoustic Signature Montana: Wavebreaker

One thing should be obvious with the turntables made by Acoustic Signature: they are not exactly fragile.
