Creative designs: floating & levitating record players (Gramovox & MAG-LEV)

Recently we discovered a few one of a kind and very creative record player designs. Let’s take a quick look at the Gramavox floating vertical turntable and the MAG-LEV levitating record player.

Below is a quick summary of each product.

Gramovox Floating Vertical Turntables

This video is simply wonderful. It’s from a company called Gramavox that, as there founder and CEO put it, re-imagines vintage design with modern technology.

For another beautifully designed turntable, take a look at Minot’s minimalistic turntable.

We love things that are old and have a history behind them. The founder talks about how he used to play music through a 1920’s gramophone.

He believes that old things have a lot of character, soul, and beauty that modern technology simply can’t match.

What they’ve done is re-imagined and redesigned a traditional flat record player into something unique.

This is not the first time something like this has been created in the turntable industry. We’ve seen manufacturers like Sony create linear turntable models in the past like the Sony PS-F5 and Sony PS-F9.

However, none of them had the style and class that this model from Gramavox currently has. With the Gramavox floating player, you can watch the turntable turn as you listen to the music.

It also comes with built-in speakers that enhance the experience. The designers have hit the nail right on the head by successfully mixing décor, style, and class all in one.

MAG-LEV Audio Levitating Record Player

We have no idea how functional and effective this record player is, but wow is it amazing! It’s called the Mag-Lev levitating turntable and does exactly what it says. Your vinyl record is suspended in the air while playing.

We have limited information about this product at the moment, other than it was a kickstarter.com project in 2016.

You can find out more about the product at MagLev Audio.
