Grandioso T1

A new undertaking to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the Esoteric legacy;
it’s the first-ever turntable in our history, the Grandioso T1.
Accommodating a patent-registered unique contact-free drive mechanism,
the “Esoteric MagneDrive System”, that inductively synchronizes the rotations
of a magnetic driver and platter, realizing a quiet and silky-smooth rotation
at an extraordinarily accurate rotation speed.
