  3. New Kickstarter Minimal Turntable Can Play Records Vertically

    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.

  5. Aldi Rivals Lidl By Launching Even Cheaper Turntable

    Last week, UK supermarket Lidl revealed they are releasing a line of budget all-in-one ION record players with built in speakers and an amplifier for only £50. It seems this has inspired the competitor supermarket Aldi to follow suit.

    Aldi’s “retro limited edition suitcase turntable” is at an affordable price of only £30, and the supermarket is now taking pre-orders for the turntables which are available online from 17th November and will hit shops on the 24th.

    Similar to Lidl’s turntable, it has a standard RCA output and built-in stereo speakers so users can connect to a home stereo if they wish. Alongside this the table also has a USB connection for ripping vinyl to digital format.

    The increasing demand and popularity of turntables came shortly after supermarkets Tesco and Sainsbury’s confirmed they will be stocking vinyl albums nationwide.
