    They were showing this at LA Audio Show this weekend. They said they just had the prototype finished a few weeks ago, and will have it for sale in a month or so. They project that with an arm from Project and a cart that it would sell for $1,500.
    Details are still unclear at this point in tracking force, distribution, etc but it's a mighty interesting product from Slovenia. They were connected to headphones but in a show with unknown everything you really won't have context in the sound.

    It does look promising as an approach but it may take a while to get it sorted out.

    Thanks for the real live photo. It's appreciated despite my continuing sceptical colouring on this one

    @Wfojas, was it spinning? When I went by the platter was on "stilts" so I figured it wasn't live and didn't pay any attention.

    It was playing! I asked the nice person (who I guess is the founder) a few things about it, but he said that while nothing was final on specs yet, they would be very soon.
    They do seem really sincere in making it sound good, and what their motivations are. I could be wrong, but i think they are more after the Rega crowd than the Avenger, Earmaster, Transrotor (all with magnetic bearings) bunch with all the attendant priorities.

    I just learned the Kronos counterbalances with the second platter, thereby resolving the question in my mind, how the hell does the magnetic platter turn the opposite way? It doesn't, its not magnetic, but a balance platter, lol.
