Mag-Lev Audio Levitating Turntable
Playing a vinyl is debatably as much a tactile and visual experience as it is an auditory one. The Mag-Lev Audio Levitating Turntable heightens all three by being the first player to spin a disk that hovers above the platform using electromagnetic levitation, with a glowing ring of light added underneath for good measure. Mag-Lev’s drive system uses software and sensors to keep the spin rate and position of the floating platter consistent and precise, attaining a high quality of sound thanks to its Pro-Ject 8.6 tonearm and Ortofon OM 5E cartridge. The semi-automatic system switches between 33.3 and 45 rpm records at the turn of a selector — which also doubles as its power button — and the platter actually remains elevated when the turntable is turned off thanks to four platter feet that rise up to support it (and then retract again when flipped back on). It’s even got a built-in uninterruptible power supply to take care of your record and Mag-Lev’s tonearm in the event of a power failure.
