The rapid changes and technological innovations have shifted music reproduction from the collective dimension to a private moment. Today we listen to music anywhere, anytime, doing anything else. But are we really giving the music the attention it deserves? A vinyl record is a tool for sharing, and it requires active listening and attention in order to produce emotions. That's why Logigram was created - to bring back the pleasure of taking a moment for yourself and your music.
Linear design, classic volume, and shape. Innovative details deriving from careful study and research. Logigram is characterized by a particular shape of the plinth, which incorporates a reinforcing layer of composite material. This allowed DEFOSS to create an anti-resonant barrier between the tonearm/cartridge axis and the motor. This particular solution not only significantly improves the quality of music reproduction, it also became our trademark.
Logigram works as a plug-and-play turntable, with a 33.3 and 45 rpm synchronous motor and a belt drive. Designed, developed and produced entirely in Italy, Logigram is available in 3 models. Logigram One White or Black is made of a 30 mm MDF plinth and it comes with the Audio-Technica AT95E MM cartridge. Logigram Premium Wood is made of a 30 mm plywood and it comes with the Ortofon 2M RED MM cartridge. The tonearm is printed with 3D technology, and it features VTA regulation and anti-skating.
Logigram can be purchased through a crowdfunding campaign on the American platform Kickstarter. The backers can contribute with a free donation, rewarded with gadgets, t-shirts, postcards depending on the donation. It works as an all or nothing fundraising, so it will be possible to start the production of Logigram only if the campaign will reach or exceed the established economic goal. At the end of the Kickstarter campaign, there will be a period of product optimization, after which it will be produced in series.
