Kickstarter funds world’s first floating turntable
After raising half a million dollars on Kickstarter through around 600 backers, MAG-LEV Audio will debut the world’s first levitating turntable.The turntable’s platter will harness magnetic levitation using patented technology to hover and rotate. “By pushing the frontier of audio technology, we were able to integrate the uplifting experience of music into the turntable design itself, bringing the feeling of zero gravity into your living room,” said the designers from MAG-LEV.
The device will also boast a cueing mechanism, an automatically-lifting tonearm, and speed select. Hailed it “a turntable of the future for the medium of the past,” it is expected to ship September 2017 in three different finishes: imitation wood, black and gold or black and silver.
