Grand Prix Audio’s Monaco v2.0 turntable is ultra-modern: It sports the same structural carbon-fiber plinth as its predecessor, but it’s packed with new
technology, including a proprietary noise-free infinite pole motor. This minimalist turntable, which can be customized with colorful platters and clamps
(for an additional cost), boasts 1/10th ppm speed accuracy and has a speed deviation of less than 0.0002 percent.
The Monaco v2.0 costs $35,000 to $38,000 without the tonearm (it’s compatible with a variety of third-party mechanisms), but the setup you see here costs
approximately $50,000, including the tonearm, cartridge, and stand. The Monaco v2.0 will start shipping in February. Owners of previous models can send
their turntables back to the factory to be upgraded at a discounted price.
