Alexander De Zuanne an Italian based designer has unveiled a new platterless turntable he has created called the ATMO SFERA, which has been designed to provide owners with the the highest quality sound possible from vinyl all from a device that sports the finest Italian design.

Its Italian designer Alexander De Zuanne explains more :
Vinyl means a smooth warm tune, resonating gracefully as it spins. To create this delicacy in sound quality ATMO SFERA is designed by a team of Italian engineers, breaking boundaries by introducing a (almost) disappearing platter as a new paradigm in turntable design. Modern urban lifestyle simply doesn’t need another gigantic round platter, a squared wooden case and a complex piece of mechanics – the tonearm – in such an old – style – furniture called ‘Turntable’.
Days of horse – drawn carriages are passed, at last, but the turntable with its basic design remained the same for about a century. To revolutionize the classic turntable design with all its drawbacks, such as heavy weight, size, playing mechanism and vulnerability to vibration and to achieve the highest sound quality we concentrated on only the vital components, using high-quality materials.
The result is an engineering masterpiece producing playback audio quality, barely surpassed even by the most sought after turntables. In ATMO SFERA Turntable there is no gimmick accessory, it is solely focused on music-making components, with the finest Italian taste for industrial design.
