the mini egg-shaped turntable with a personalized design by audio deva
following the kickstarter success of its plateless turntable a few years ago, audio deva returns, this time to honor the revival of the analog experience. the team of Italian designers and engineers have created a custom-designed egg-shaped hub called OVO, which advocates wired connection rather than wireless capabilities.

Sound quality has been taken into account throughout the design of the OVO turntable, starting with the choice of audio deva to forgo any wireless connection. the designers believed that an old fashioned cable connection would achieve better sound compared to the encoding / encoding process required for bluetooth transmission.
not only that, but the body features a 10mm anticorodal aluminum base, topped with a high precision inverted shaft fitted with an anti-resonant platter, made from a durable crystalline plastic. underneath are three anti-resonance feet which further minimize the negative effects of vibrations. the base has been CNC machined from anti-corodal aluminum and weighs 3 kilograms. This is the part that makes it a custom design: The egg shaped canvas can be painted white or customized to include your own digitally printed design.
audio deva has subjected the prototype “OVO” to a long series of detailed quality tests to ensure that every component has been designed and manufactured to the highest quality. the platinum is currently on kickstarter where investors can help with manufacturing costs by placing an order to receive the egg-shaped platinum by March 2019. the platinum sells for € 899, but users can pledge to order one at the reduced price of € 479.
