 Acoustic Signature TORNADO NEO Turntable 


In the plan­ning phase of our NEO series, we wan­ted to pre­sent a super flexi­ble high mass turn­table that would unleash audio­phile forces far beyond its price range. Already pre­pared for 3 tone­arms and equip­ped with our very latest inno­vative tech­no­logies, the Acoustic Signa­ture Tornado NEO pro­vides a capti­vating musical perfor­mance that will take even the most expe­rien­ced analogists by storm.


Special features:

  • 1 integrated, completely insulated AC-motor
  • External digital motor controller DMC-10 with super stable multi-voltage power supply and innovative AVC technology level 1 (Auto­matic Vibration Control)
  • Ultraprecise, extremely rigid and robust DTD® bearing with diamond-coated spindle (Dura Turn Diamond® Bearing)
  • Exclusive silencer technology with 4 silencer modules for platter vibration reduction
  • Massive aluminum chassis with CLD technology (Constraint Layer Damping) for significantly improved resonance behavior
  • RPM-regulated double belt drive with speed fine adjustment for the subplatter
  • 3-point setup with special gel-damped feet
  • Prepared for up to 3 tonearms
  • Up to 3 adjustable arm­ boards for 9 to 12 inch tonearms
  • Flexible placeable control panel

Design highlight

The Tornado NEO is available in three diffe­rent versions. The anodized aluminum surfaces are available in silver, black or bi-color.


Silencer and CLD technology

4 silencer modules are embedded in the platter of the Tornado NEO. Together with our CLD aluminum chassis, these ensure an effec­tive mini­mi­zation of unwanted vibrations.


AVC technology

The Tornado NEO is equipped with our highly inno­vative AVC (Auto­matic Vibra­tion Control) techno­logy. The inte­gra­ted, fully iso­lated AC motor with double-belt drive is supplied via the external DMC-10 digital motor elec­tro­nics with super-stable multi-voltage power supply.


Benchmark precision

The Dura Turn Diamond® Bearing: Our pionee­ring DTD® bearing also ‘beats’ at the heart of the Typhoon NEO.



“Gunther Frohn­hoefer’s 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.”

Roland Schmen­ner, Fidelity 11/2021



Stormy siblings

The basic design approach unites the Tornado NEO, Hurricane NEOand Typhoon NEO turn­tables. All three models are sub­plat­ter driven and have the new DTD® bearing in common.
