MAG-LEV Audio story begins in the living room in the center of Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia. In that living room three designers were listening to records on their turntable and thinking about their next project. Magic happened and an idea was born, an idea about the record player of the future. The nostalgic love of music was embedded in the core of the turntable. But the turntable itself was a bold vision of the times to come.
Meanwhile some engineers where sitting at a desk. They just finished the build of their second solar power plant and were also thinking of their next big project. They wanted to do something exciting, something where they will put to use, all of the knowledge they possess.
Both teams sat down one day to have a meeting and the rest is history.
At MAG-LEV Audio nothing is left to chance and the attention to the detail has always been the decision maker. The combination of the media from the past and technology from the future made it possible to create this outstanding piece of audio equipment in the present.
When thinking about the design of the turntable we took the minimalist approach since we had known that the levitation itself will be the main eye catcher.
When we were thinking about the colors and the materials that we will use we were searching for inspiration in the past decades when Hi-Fi equipment was on the rise. The 70s and 80s were our main source, we wanted to embody that raw minimalist feeling when there is nothing else left to add or subtract. Doing that in combination with the futuristic drive system we were able to get that sleek retro-futuristic look.
THE ART OF TECHNOLOGY
At the core of the turntable is the drive, combined with coils and magnets it is the one and only in the world. This patent pending technology is a revolution in audio universe. Since there are no moving parts inside of the turntable, no motors that spin the platter, this is truly one of a kind listening experience.
The Levitating Turntable is designed for people who appreciate high quality sound and innovative design. It comes with a pre-fitted tonearm and cartridge. This setup allows you to connect through phono in. Once you’re done, you just have to pick your favorite record, turn the turntable on, move the tonearm into position and lower the cueing lever. Then sit back, relax and enjoy.
