ML1 - The First Floating Turntable
By combining their love for music with careful integration of technology and high-range audio components, MAG-LEV Audio created a turntable of the future for the medium of the past. The ML1 visually enhances the experience of listening to vinyl records by levitating the platter and adding subtle led lighting to further emphasise the effect.
The ML1 is designed for people who appreciate high quality sound and innovative design. It comes with a pre-fitted tonearm and cartridge, and can be connection to the rest of your system through its phono output via the RCA cables also included in the package (no built-in preamp).
** Because of the magnetic force used to levitate the platter, those with older pacemakers should not come within 1 metre of it **
The drive system in this turntable is where all the magic is. It is completely different than anything else on the market. By using their innovative and patented technology, Mag-Lev were able to not only achieve magnetic levitation, but also to maintain the incredibly precise turning of the platter with sensor regulating software.
In order to help keep your precious vinyl records in pristine condition, the turntable lifts the tonearm at the end of the record. This function keeps records from being scratched and prolongs the life of the cartridge.
When it comes to vinyl, the cueing mechanism plays a vital role in the listening experience. The gentle drop and the precision of the needle is what make the entire process feel even more satisfying.
Tonearm and Cartridge
The turntable comes complete with the Pro-Ject Audio 9cc Carbon Tonearm with carbon-fibre armtube and OM 10 stylus from Ortofon.
33.3 and 45 r.p.m.
Switch between 33.3-rpm and 45-rpm with just a turn of a button. To ensure you have everything you need, a 45-rpm adapter has been supplied, so you can enjoy all types of records.
Platter feet have been added, allowing the platter to rest when switched off. These feet automatically retract when you begin using the turntable, and when the tonearm is placed back in its original position, the feet will automatically rise up and so that the turntable can be safely switched off.
In case of power outages, the turntable has been designed with a UPS system, which stores enough power to safely lift the tonearm, stop the record, and return the platter feet to resting position. This way the turntable and record remain in perfect condition even when the unexpected happens.
Subtle led lighting, in amber or white, has been added, giving the turntable a sleek, futuristic feel, and further enhancing the visual effects of levitation even when the lights are off.
