A new Kickstarter-funded turntable using a unique minimal design is in the works.
Created by Dutch developers Miniot, the Wheel record player is "just a wheel", utilising a stylus hidden within the base to play records without obstructing the view of the disc.
The clever design also means the delicate needle is protected from damage or dust, and perhaps most interestingly, enables the record to be played horizontally or vertically. Playback is managed via the spindle and its polished word exterior is aesthetically pleasing.
The wheel only plays 12” vinyl running qt 33rpm so users won’t be able to play 45s on this turntable.
The Wheel uses a custom AudioTechnica AT95E cartridge, which can't be changed by the user, along with replaceable styli which can be ordered as and when needed, and can use both wired and wireless connections to transmit audio.
