Slovenia-based company MAG-LEV Audio has created the very first levitating turntable.
According to the company, the device will provide a “better, newer way” to experience vinyl records by combining high-quality sound and innovative design.
The first model has a basic yet elegant design, equipped with orange lighting and a pre-fitted tonearm and cartridge.
The turntable’s semi-automatic system lifts the tonearm off the record after playback, which minimizes damage to the record and prolongs the life of the cartridge.
When the turntable is turned off, a set of retractable “feet” rise to hold the platter in place. The feet automatically retract when the turntable is turned on.
The turntable doesn’t have a USB port, though, which makes it unusable for digital DJs. It’s unclear if MAG-LEV Audio has plans to develop a model with digital capabilities.
The turntable will be available in August 2017 in black, white, and imitation wood for $1,390, $1,490, and $1,490, respectively. However, the company is offering a discount to anyone who donates to its Kickstarter campaign, which is funding the project.
