Unparalleled Speed Control & Noiseless Performance
A technological leap in Speed Accuracy at average 20 parts per billion with peak deviation (speed error) of less than 0.0002% has been achieved with Grand Prix Audio’s new and revolutionary Monaco v2.0 systems. The proprietary slotless motor has infinite pole design and a custom controller with >75,000 line encoder disc, and custom motion control with increased torque which achieves speed in just 2 revolutions. The ultrasonic speed measurement system functions far outside the realm of any playback frequency, and an active feedback loop maintains platter speed by interrogating the platter motion with actual measurements taken nearly 76,000 times per revolution. The Monaco v2.0’s achievement in frequency accuracy produces the truest possible sound from your record collection with such quiet performance, until needle touches record you can’t tell by listening whether or not the system is on!
