Arcici Turntables

Known primarily for high-end equipment racks, Italian Arcici also makes some beautiful turntables. Shown here is the Alba with Lyla tonearm, the least expensive model that retails for 14,000 euro (about $19,500 as of this writing), and like the other Arcici turntables, all setup instruments and gauges are included.

Next up the food chain is the La Luce, shown here with a Lyla tonearm in a package that will set you back 16,000 euro (about $22,400 as of this writing). As with all Arcici turntables, the transparent acrylic platter's mass and inertia are increased by embedding stainless-steel weights around the periphery.

At the top of the heap is the Centoventi, another non-suspended design driven by a soft belt and a standalone motor. This model is made to order only—with a six-month waiting list—and the price depends on several factors, so the company did not quote a price for this article, but you can bet it ain't cheap.

These have been manufactured for years by the company La Luce, and I believe that Arcici is simply a distributor of their line. One things certain, they are good looking.

Sweet, Italion audio gear! Going from equipment racks to turntables is a bit of a leap. Good find!

I've appreciated the Arcici Imperial line of equipment racks for years, though I had absolutely no idea they also manufactured turntables. And what a clever tie in that is: it makes perfect sense that a company with extensive knowledge of and experience in vibration damping would turn to making LP turntables, where vibration and stability are the name of the game. Neat!
