Gold Note's flagship turntable. Every Bellagio is special in its own way and Bellagio Reference is Gold Note's gift to vinyl lovers.
FIVE DIFFERENT CURVED PLINTHS and a HOURGLASS MOTOR PULLEY
Reference features five different curved plinths directly derived from Conquest to achieve great stiffness and indeformability and allow superb resonance feedback control: plinths are interfaced with aluminium spacers of different thickness joined togheter with custom machined solid blocks of aluminium and extra-large feet. For Reference we chose one of the best platter bearing/spindle ever made, entirely built in carbon steel, hardened, rectified and polished to guarantee the best working fluidity. Polished bronze is used for the bearing housing, engineered to get a 1/100 millimeter matching tolerance with the spindle.
To power our best turntable we chose the best proprietary technology based on a PWM – Pulse Width Modulator design: PWM transforms AC-DC-AC power coupling the motor coils the best to reduce motor resistance and vibrations while guaranteeing the highest torque. The new anti-resonating dampened hourglass shaped motor pulley stops the transmission of any vibration. It's precisely machined and then polished to achieve perfectly smooth surfaces in order to guarantee low rotational noise and great performance.
Conquest Series is the only family of high-end turntables coming with remote to let you always be in control of all functions: ON/OFF, speed change, speed control and power control.
CONTROL THE POWER OF YOUR MUSIC*
Bellagio Series is the only family of high-end turntables to feature a unique “Power Control System”: controlling the motor's torque is to control your music by finely adjusting the turntable's “power characteristics”. Selecting lower torque is indicated when playing ancient or chamber string music, where details strongly matter; while the maximum torque should be used for rock or symphonic music to enabling maximum dynamic. Power Control System is conveniently performed by remote control to let you choose the best sound directly from your listening point.
