175 THE VIENNA PHILHARMONIC RECORDPLAYER
Uniquely, 175 – The Vienna Philhar- monic Recordplayer is fashioned from material found in musical instru- ments. The wooden chassis and the lacquer of the 175 correspond to that of a violin. The gilded metal chassis is based on the brass instruments of the orchestra, while the ngerlift comes from a clarinet ap. Even the knob for switching on and changing speeds comes from a ute button.
The technical heart of the turntable is the latest in record player design from Pro-Ject Audio Systems, based on Pro-Ject’s multi-award-winning model, “The Classic.” The design team has improved every technical detail, and produced the new model according to Pro-Ject’s highest stan- dard of build quality, with the tightest tolerances.
Supplied with the 175 is a hand-selec- ted cartridge, the result of a collaboration with Ortofon, based on their top-of-the-line Cadenza series. The housing of the cartridge is made from a very high damping alloy, carefully polished to match the surface of the turntable. The outcome is an extre- mely melli uous sound, re ecting the goal of this collaboration: to appro- ximate as closely as possible the sound of the world-famous Vienna Philharmonic.
A limited edition series of 175 samples, the 175 o ers music a cionados a unique collector‘s item in a classical design. It is available in two colours: Dark Cello or Bright Violin. At the back of the turntable is a plaque with the serial number and the name of the owner.
