“… the AMG V12 simply has the magic touch.” – Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound



Precision engineering and classic design are embodied in the first turntable from AMG (Analog Manufaktur Germany), the Viella 12 or simply, V12. The AMG turntable line was created by a group of audio industry experts to advance the art of vinyl playback.

Werner Roeschlau, his son Julian Lorenzi and other master machinists developed the AMG products at their bespoke multi-story Bavarian factory located north of Munich.

All machining is done in-house, combining the latest Computer Aided Design and CNC machines with “classic analog” tools, including custom lathes and drill presses. Their factory has been manufacturing key, precision parts for some of the world’s most highly regarded turntables for over a decade. This expertise in the design and manufacture of turntables led to the AMG line, premiering with the Viella 12.

Julian Lorenzi, after years of experience working closely with his father, combined with his education and background, will carry on the AMG legacy as Managing Director.

Reviews

"From the bass right through the ceiling, this record player/cartridge is capable of extraordinary low-level resolution, natural timbre, lightning transients, and (as noted) the kind of 3-D imaging that makes instrument and voices—wherever they are located on the stage—“pop” into lifelike presence." Jonathan Valin, TAS.
