If there was a prize for gadget most likely to enjoy a cameo in Ridley Scott’s next Blade Runner movie, Brogue would put its money on the MAG-LEV Audio. At its core, this is a record player that uses a magnetic field to create a near-frictionless, noiseless and vibration-free drive. Or, to put it another way, the platter actually levitates. More than just a new spin on turntable tech, this revolutionary design incorporates a host of impressive features, from its Pro-Ject 8.6 tonearm and Ortofon OM 5E cartridge to an integrated power reserve.
