Dear Backers,

We are tuning in with our second progress update. As you all probably know, the most important aspect of our turntable is its core and electronic systems. To develop the final custom components that will be certified and go to production, we’ve teamed up with Epiko d.o.o.

Epiko is a company specializing in electronic systems. Not only are they great in the electronic department, some of them also have a musical background, which is why we think they are the right team for this job. They are present not only with the mind, but also with their heart. It’s important for us to share our love for music with everyone we work with.

First they had to open up all the prototypes we have, to assess how far we’ve progressed on the matter. After inspecting it, doing the proper measurements and checking with their certification partner, they’ve already began working on improving and optimizing the electronic system for production.

So what you can expect now is a custom made core, that we’ll be able to service, since we are developing it right here in Slovenia. All the components will be tested properly and certified accordingly. We believe this collaboration will add different views, offer great suggestions and knowledge and finally present the best solutions to fit our needs.

Along with the development of custom electronic systems, we are working on all the mechanical components, which are far less complicated but will still take time to coordinate with our suppliers. We are very detail oriented and wish to bring you the best product possible, with everything that goes along with it.

Thank you all for your immense support through our social media. It’s great knowing that all of you are on this journey with us. We appreciate your support.

Yours truly,

MAG-LEV Audio Team

      Hi Mac,
      What you are seeing is still a prototype. Some of the parts we have in the one in the photo are 3D printed. No worries, all the plastic used will be much more durable and by standards of other similar products in this industry.

      Hi Lance,
      Thank you for the kind words. We are trying to get the best people involved to do just that. Eliminate all bugs, think of every possibility, every way people will use it and try to build a product that will account for all that.

      Now that i see the internal of the turntable. One thing comes to mind, as I'm planning to have my turntable for a long time. Please make sure that all the plastics you use is age resistant.

      Great update. I come from a manufacturing background myself, and it's always heartening to see people approaching production from a careful, well-planned standpoint. Best to get the bugs worked out early! Keep up the progress and the updates!
