ON (Old / New) is the first plug and play turntable, with a height of only 6.5 centimeters, it is capable of managing all kind of sources, analog and digital. It can be connected to computers with a USB cable and to portable devices (smartphones, tablets and digital music players) via a Bluetooth® aptX® audio receiver. It houses a valve preamp with dedicated power supply and amplifiers from 100 up to 500 Watts RMS.
ON design, from the deck with veneer of first choice woods to CORIAN® plinth and platter, combines the philosophy of components that encompasses the sphere of audio sources from pure analog to high-definition digital. Wood selection makes ON a unique object, giving back the value of craftsmanship.
The attention for materials and design, craftsmanship and technological research makes ON a timeless object, which encapsulates performance to be discovered. ON is a creation of high precision, quality and reliability.

Giuseppe Pinto is the creator of ON (Old / New), the first plug and play turntable.
Before inventing ON, Giuseppe launched his first headphones amp "H2A" made with valve technology, PUSH-PULL output in pure class-A and entirely built by hand. Afterwards, he devoted himself to the R&D and prototyping - based on unique proprietary projects - of valve and solid state power amps, MM/MC phono preamps (active / passive RIAA equalization), valve and solid state preamps, coupling transformers, power and output transformers, AD/DA converters, USB and Wireless interface and extensive research on electronic components and materials.
Finally, in 2016 the time is right to present his new creation: ON turntable. ON is based on the evolution of electronics over the past 80 years and on innovative materials.
