Triangle Art Maestro & Anubis Turntables

Triangle Art had such an impressive active room display at the recent Pacific Audio Fest (a.k.a. PAF 2023) that we here at AP felt it was worth shining today’s gear spotlight on some of the truly amazing turntables being shown there — especially considering lead designer Tom Vu was on hand to demo them and discuss how they came to be.

The Triangle Art ’tables seen at PAF 2023 are as follows: the Maestro (sporting an SRP of $9,000), which was fitted with a 12in Horus tonearm ($4,400) and Zeus MC cartridge ($4,800); and the Anubis (SRP: $18,000) with a 12in Osiris Mk2 tonearm ($9,000) and Apollo MC cartridge ($9,000). Triangle Art also showed the big kahuna that truly reflects its name, the Ultimate SE (SRP: $130,000), which was also fitted with the $9K Osiris arm and $9K Apollo MC cart.

We do realize some of these SRPs can be seen as budget-busters for some of you, so we’ll keep our focus here on the first two ’tables, Maestro and Anubis.


Let’s begin by looking further into the Maestro. This $9K ’table comes with a hefty, solid composite metal 1in thick plinth and 2in thick solid composite metal platter that’s said to “control all vibrations and provide superior resonance” (their words). The stainless-steel bearing is composed of diamond coating with a large ground radius, and it runs on a thrust washer. According to Triangle Art, this material has a “very low efficient of friction and very high wear resistance, providing a long, maintenance-free life.”

Other Maestro features include an AC motor with stabilizer for 33/45 rpm adjustments, an optional controller motor drive, dimensions of 18 x 10 x 17in (w/h/d); and a weight of 80lbs.


Next, let’s look at the Anubis. This $18K ’table comes with a hefty solid composite metal CNC-machined plinth and a 48mm thick chrome platter, also made of solid composite metal. Diamond-coated non-inverted steel ball bearings support the Anubis’ heavy platter.

Other Anubis features include a high-torque AC motor with belt drive, 33/45 rpm adjustment options, dimensions of 12 x 10 x 12in (w/h/d); and a weight of “approximately” 160lbs (double the weight of the Maestro).

For those with money to burn.

There is already a speakers brand, at very reasonable prices given their quality (manufactures its own components used by others) known worldwide, also called by this same name. Why maintain the confusion? Finally, if you want a record player like this, what does this model offer compared to a Transrotor ZET 1 with a 10 kg platter ($3600 nude, 4-5500 with arm and cartridge)?

...for the single man who wishes to remain so.

Regarding the similarly-named speakers, are they not the same company? I honestly don't know.

To be even more confusing, they call themselves Triangle 'Art' (since when art is a triangle and has something to do with hifi, Lord!) but ALSO use the geometric figure instead of 'A'. A lawsuit would be possible, especially since Triangle also sells record players (made by Project).

Why does one turntable have a Italian name while the other one is Egyptian? They both look like they were designed by Klingons. Let's have some consistency here!

You made my day on this one!

Some of them? Some of us?

Like the old Peanuts cartoon said, “Imagine if you just sold one each day.”

I have, and the performance is fantastic. Stunning sound, even when heard during an audio show.

Demos with all of his gear were impressive. I can't afford it but whatever- performance is performance. I can't afford a Ferrari, but I can appreciate this and that.

Many times. And yes, they do sound good. But frankly they look tacky. And while recognizing that all comparisons are odious, likening these to a Ferrari is a bit wide of the mark. Ferrari makes performance cars which would be desirable even if they were supplied without engines. Just look at a 250GT sometime.
