MAG-LEV Audio – ML1
MAG-LEV Audio’s ML1 Turntable visually enhances the experience of listening to vinyl records by levitating the platter.
By joining our love for music with careful integration of technology and high-range audio components, we’ve created a turntable of the future for the medium of the past.
At the core of the turntable is the drive, combined of coils and magnets it is the only one 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 ART OF TECHNOLOGY
At MAG-LEV Audio we love innovation and music. We were searching for a way to give people a better, newer way to experience vinyl records.
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. We call it The Art of Technology.
HOW IT WORKS
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.
