HUm??? 3d printed turntable, might be innovative, but I dought it s anti resonance propriaterie would compeat with other proven material.also playing analogue to send it via wireless (digital conversion)and then convert back to analogue. I see a contradiction. analogue versus digital.

Belt drive, plastic platter and plastic tonearm: sounds like a toy. They should be ashamed to call this a Lenco!

I was going to say, why call it a turntable and not just because of Lenco's legacy. The cut outs in the tonearm are to reduce the weight of the tonearm since it's saves them using .003 ounces of plastic- less weight. Someone forgot about why a tonearm needs to be rigid and unable to transfer vibes/resonances etc.. they will take care of that in future editions. This very very very light table does come with some main bearing oil and the lube re and re schedule, which is nice. :lol: Let's not forget, this turntable is capable of being used outdoors given the built in speaker option. Outdoor usage of a turntable has been overlooked, not unlike outdoor TV watching or outdoor showering. :lol:

Two turntables and a microphone is now two earbuds and a phone. Do these manufacturers know about the whole Millennial thing? I know they can afford reissued records at $40.00 a pop so they can have a solid collection of maybe 10 records within year. That will compare well with the 5 TB of data they can have in the cloud accessible on their phone.

:D Thought I should mention. I read a review in one of the British Mags on a direct drive Lenco, [hanpin made]. They were more than surprised at the value and sound quality at the low price level. But it was not "made" by Lenco. And in no way would it be in the league of the Technics sl1200's. If you check out Vinyl Room on you tube he just reviewed the Technics 1200, He said the new g is in every way "better" than the old 1200 models, several of which he owned. That is very good news I believe.

My modest Revolver turntable with a Jelco 250ST tonearm would blow this paperweight away. I guess the only thing this Jenco (formerly an olive oil business) would be better than a Crossley, crudely injection moulded to look like a turntable, turntable.
