Fascinated by sound technology, the Swiss Fritz Laeng started an electrical business in and his wife, Marie, became the driving force. Reliability of the turntables and the excellent technical service were the key concepts. Thus began the reputation of the brand. In was founded another factory, in Osimo, the Lenco Italiana. Due to some sales problems, the production had to be reduced. Being a long term project, Lenco Italiana made at the beginning, mainly motors.
Another Lenco partner was Goldring, an audio equipment manufacturing company. Goldring produced phono cartridges and exported them all around the world and even Lenco turntables in the s and Lenco L75 was marketed via Goldring as a GL75, their logo being as indication of high quality products. The state of the art of the company was L 75, which was introduced in The legendary L 75 was presented as a "4 kilogram turntable of millimeter and its aluminum housing" and it was the best-selling Lenco record player.
As time went on, the company evolved and exported the products to more than eighty countries around the world. A serious loss, Marie Laeng, the heart and the soul of the company died.
The engine and the soul of the company was missing. In these times the entire world economy was in trouble, the oil crisis, with Sunday driving bans and frightened the consumers in addition. A certain degree of oversaturation of the market and all the economic events have caused demand for luxury products such as Hi-Fi equipment a temporary strong decrease. Another problem came from the Land of the Rising Sun.
Asia flooded Europe with a diversity of a good and reasonably priced turntables from all manufacturers. That was enough already to bring a company in trouble, what then in the case of Lenco was reflected to a reduction in the products and staff. In , the bankruptcy of Lenco AG Burgdorf was initiated. Immediately Lenco Audio AG was founded, whose tasks were only to ensure repair, service and warranty for existing Lenco equipment. Lenco AG Burgdorf officially ceased to exist as of this date, but under the custody of Lenco Audio AG, open contracts could be completed and devices of the last generation could be finished.
In the owner of the company Lenco, Fritz Laeng, died. At that time they based on low budget products, most of them being made in Hong Kong. In , the company was again acquired, this time by Commaxx International NV.

The Lenco L78 is another idler-drive turntable in the Lenco range. This eBay purchase turned out to be a nice deck, apparently never stored in damp attics or garages and no cigarette smoke either. Clean metal and easy to disassemble. The on-off function of the L78 is changed compared to L75 and not quite as easy to renovate. Some of the metal structure around the tonearm needs to be kept to hold the spring connected to the on-off arm doing a little more than pushing the on-off switch first two images below. During disassembling I try to keep functions apart and I use a lot of plastic bags to store screws and metal parts for the same function. So, use your mobile as I did below to record how it was all put together.
