It finally is here, it exists, its real, and it's hella cool.
All of the things we were promised in early sci-fi movies are coming to life and its awesome.
The new MAG LEV magnetic levitation turntable has finally landed at Miranda Hifi and our inner 8 year old selves could not be any more giddy if we tried. The MAG LEV ML1 features a fully levitating platter with electronic speed controller which allows you to swap between 33.3 and 45 RPM with ease. As it uses electromagnets speed control is very good and stable and platter stability is very good too and in turn removes the whole platter vibration issue. As with all turntables though, keep cats, footballs and small children away...
It utilises a 9" Project carbon tonearm so it is nice and stiff and light, and is semi-automatic. It will auto lift at the end of the record, no return though and it requires manual cueing.
Cartridge duties are taken care of by the workhorse Ortofon OM10. Whilst this will get you going, to really get the best out of it, we strongly recommend an upgrade to one of the 2M or preferably Quintet range.
So come on down to the store and marvel at the wonders of magnets, because magnets.
