Turntable - Gold Note Valore 425 Plus in Walnut (upgrade option). Made in Italy.

Reposting as a new thread since I could not edit the old one. Cable and price change.
This is the Plus version of the 425 which means it is either the acrylic plinth version or with the walnut veneer plinth option. Both said to improve damping of the plinth.

Retail is now at £1445 for these versions (excluding a cartridge). A real looker of a turntable.

Now £650 collected or £670 posted.

No carriage included.

There is a tweak/upgrade done to this turntable making it more user friendly and sounds better than a standard version.

Standard Gold Note tonearms have their own variation of a DIN connector at it’s base. This means any cable upgrade options are only available via Gold Note direct at considerable cost. A standard DIN does not fit.

So this tonearm was sent to Audio Origami who 3D printed a bespoke bung so a Cardas DIN connector could be swapped into the tonearm base. So now any DIN based tonearm cable upgrade can be used.

Cable connected at the moment and that which will be supplied is an upgrade too. It is a Y Tome Coppercord with a 1877Phono (Zanfino) gold plated DIN connector. RCA’s are KLE silver plated varieties. This is the cable with cotton dielectric giving a natural tone.

Only other tweak which can be undone is I wrapped the bearing housing with some damping material – this can be removed if wanted.

Plinth is 30mm with special cut out shapes to reduce vibrations (seen in one of the photos).

9” Gold Note B-5 tonearm with Rega fit (geometry).

4mm thick high mass dust cover in superb condition.

Turntable itself is 9.5/10 in condition with only a couple hundred hours use. Cable are still to be fully burnt in.

Tall platter bearing – 60mm

Comes with the original unused felt mat, but I’ll also include an original Ringmat too.

23mm thick platter in high dampening PTE, extra-long platter spindle, minimum platter/plinth distance and high-quality platter bearing - every single feature is in fact directly derived from their flagship series.
