This levitating turntable plays your records in mid-air

If you listen to vinyl, it's a good bet that the sound is only part of the experience. There's something about the tactile sensation of putting the needle on the record, the ritual of hearing that static before the first note kicks in.

If you're that kind of devotee, there's a record player that's on your wavelength. Just the act of watching the MAG-LEV ML1 Levitating Turntable operate makes the whole experience a little more magical.

Without any motor or gears, the ML1 spins records in mid-air with a series of magnets and coils, using the same technology that keeps the world's fastest Maglev trains humming along. Speeds can be set to 33 1/3 or 45 RPM, and there's no sacrifice in sound quality for all this presentation. You get crisp audio from the first drop of the Ortofon OM 10 mm cartridge, all delivered on a floating, gently illuminated platform.
