Okay, I’ll admit that I’ve got ceramic disc magnets that repel each other and provide life for the 65 lb platter on my DIY turntable, but the Mag-Lev turntable Check out the world’s first “levitating” turntable takes the idea of magnetic levitation to it’s ultimate evolution. I see quite a few potential difficulties with this design, but I am intrigued enough to want to see one of these when they eventually come to market.
David, it’s really cool, but why does it look like it’s on fire?
Admittedly a visually intriguing design. But beyond that, I’m curious to know how this technology is superior to existing turntable designs.
Alon, a splendid observation (on fire) that I didn’t notice until you pointed it out! A nearby bar-b-q perhaps?
Jazzfan- That this design is superior to existing turntable designs will be a matter of debate. he purported advantage would be that there could be no bearing noise transmitted to the platter- there being no bearing that the platter is riding on. Now, will there be trade offs by using this method (levitation) for spinning the platter? Undoubtedly. Worth the trade off?
