THE+RECORD PLAYER is an all-in-one record player featuring a built-in, high-performance music system with high-quality phono components and advanced listening features. Made to please the discerning audiophile, it can be enjoyed by any music lover seeking a compact and elegant vinyl playing solution.
THE+RECORD PLAYER is a highly versatile analog and digital music system. In addition to 33/45 rpm vinyl playback, it includes Bluetooth for streaming music from digital devices, optical input for connection to a digital audio source or TV, and a USB input/output for ripping your vinyl to PC, or playing back your music files.
THE+RECORD PLAYER includes two analog inputs, a headphone output, and a preamplifier output to add a subwoofer or separate powered speakers.
A 5V USB output powers your Chromecast, Echo Dot or Airport Express, making THE+RECORD PLAYER ready to accommodate your favorite voice assistant or streaming device.
THE+RECORD PLAYER includes a timeless, understated look uncommon with other audio products. Designer Alexander Åhnebrink incorporates genuine wood veneer, aluminum accents and other premium materials for their sturdiness, sound quality and ability to blend seamlessly with any decor. Unlike other turntables systems which limit bass performance to reduce the tendency for the stylus to pick up speaker vibrations (acoustic feedback), THE+RECORD PLAYER eliminates acoustic feedback without limiting bass. This is accomplished by a multi-faceted approach which includes:
- Designing a unique four-speaker array;
- Developing a special enclosure construction and bracing technique;
- Using the latest electronic DSP processing.
To further improve the listening experience, THE+RECORD PLAYER includes an exclusive “Wide” mode for room-enveloping spatial enhancement.
