New to Kickstarter: The Lenco-MD bridges old and new technology like few other products out there. On one hand, it is a classic belt driven turntable. On the other, it features a futuristic design, with components crafted by a 3D printer.
The Lenco-MD offers the old world hi-fi experience, with a decidedly new twist. It’s a traditional turntable coupled with a futuristic 3D printed design.
The turntable is a collaboration between Lenco, the Swiss hi-fi company and Dutch 3D printer producer, RepRapUniverse. Here’s what they have to say about the project:
“It is built by you, 3D printed, modular, feature rich, community driven, upgradable and mainly made of renewable resources. All this with great audio quality and an aesthetic design.”
The machine is made of multiple swappable components, including modules for solar powering, bluetooth reception and speakers.
The turntable is built from PLA – a biodegradable thermoplastic – which is comprised of renewable resources like sugarcane and corn starch.
