When it comes to Bavarian engineering, anything short of the best is a little to less to ask for. Hence, designer Werner Roeschlau and his son have indeed put in their creative designing and execution to perfection with the V12 Viella turntable. From their factory based in Munich, they have managed to use CNC machines in tandem with CAD software to create the product, which comprises of a 25mm thick aircraft grade aluminum body, including the 16mm axle fixed alongside. CNC machined within the confines of the factory, the high effective mass of 12 grams concerning the anodized aluminum tubing inside, ensures that the resonance control is much higher, as older vinyl records do have a tendency of a rough texture of its sounds. To ensure that the electronic controls are in perfect order, all the wiring has been done with copper to ensure higher conductivity.
