REVIEW OF MEDITERRANEO WITH B-5.1 TONEARM AND TUSCANY CARTRIDGE BY STUART SMITH

 
“Aesthetically the turntable is an absolute stunner and oozes (sorry) Italian style. The wave of the lower walnut plinth looks wonderful on the rack and is offset by that highly polished acrylic top. Speed control buttons are well placed on the left and are effective in their use. Fit and finish are exemplary and set up is a doddle. There are lots of turntables available on the market and I can quite honestly say that this is up there with the best- looking turntables I have come across. It is elegantly simple and stylish and I like that a lot and the large “spikes” below the deck really set it of nicely. I also like that the turntable is essentially plug and play with you only needing to add the cartridge of your choice. If we were to judge this turntable on looks and build alone it would be a winner. Gold Note have, since this review was written, introduced a new version with a gold coloured instead of wood plinth and it too looks fab!”
