Awarded ‘Most Significant Analog Product Introductions’ by Jim Hannon of The Absolute Sound!

“AMG introduced the Giro, a smaller and less costly ’table with electronic speed control and a decoupled spindle-design and platter-bearing derived from the Viella , as well as a 9″ tonearm employing a scaled-down version of the patented dual-pivot bearing found in AMG’s reference 12J2 arm. The Giro’s belt-driven platter is made of aluminum and synthetic materials. The AMG Teatro MC phono cartridge with a special titanium body, which was shown at Axpona a few weeks ago, was also on display.”

“Not to be missed was the AMG Phono Preamplifier, designed by Michael Yee. This two-chassis, dual-mono, solid-state, battery-powered phonostage has both single-ended RCA and balanced XLR inputs and outputs. Its front panel enables push-button selection of different phono equalization curves, including RIAA, Decca, Columbia, and mono. Using the right EQ can have a dramatic effect on sound quality, transforming a bright or lackluster LP into a treasure. The AMG Phono Pre is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2014.”

 “A.M.G. introduced a very nice-looking 9″ tonearm—so nice looking that I shamelessly begged for a review loaner. The as-yet unnamed [actually it is the 9W2] arm incorporates A.M.G.’s patented twin-pivot bearing…”
