What I meant was that it would take a large amount of electricty to charge the magnet.

Oh damn, it's real magnets. And there I was, thinking it was some kind of optical illusion!
Oh DAMN, this thing comes from basically next door, (if it is really produced in Slovenia)
And OHHHH DAAAAAMN, this is fucking expensive, 2500€! And I thought the new iPhone was frivolous, lol...

Did it come with a pacemaker warning? Because that sounds like the kind of thing that would make a device unmarketable in Europe without a crapton of safety warnings to avoid elderly people collapsing onto their turntable while changing the record...

I think there are actual moving parts in the mechanism below the plate because I can hear them move, it's actually louder than you'd expect. It takes like 10 seconds or so for the platter to spin up to a 33rpm (and likewise to spin down to a stop), so it isn't like there's a strong magnetic field that fixes the plate to an axis. The field seems more to lock the plate in a fixed position and then something else, like a weaker field, makes it spin.


Probably an oscillating electrical field. The same principle is used to make those little white magnets spin that can be used to mix chemicals in a lab...you drop the magnet into your fluid-to-be-mixed, put the receptacle on a special base, and flip the switch on the base...

When it's not spinning, there's 4 little legs that come up to hold the platter so it doesn't need magnets. When the thing is spinning, it's a *real* bad idea to try to mess with the plate as it starts to oscillate on a specific axis and it can damage the needle, and probably other things.


Somewhat sounds like a future iteration will require an additional guiding system to avoid accidents with the plate (also, hope you don't live in earthquake country... :um: ). It's cool, but it also sounds somewhat dangerous. ^_^

I guess it's good that the platter is isolated (well, on what amounts to a soft suspension) to prevent rumble from a bearing - but the arm is not isolated with it, so there is still a path for environmental noise and vibration.

But I won't be buying one - my 60yo Garrard 301 is still quiet enough for me, given all the other sources of noise on a vinyl record. I re-lubricate the main bearing occasionally to maintain its performance, of course.

I do buy vinyl occasionally, but mostly for the huge artwork. I don't even own a working vinyl player at the moment.

I second that recommendation.
