N. Andover, MA – November 1st, 2017 – Fresh off its debut at Munich High End Show in May, and a successfully over-funded Kickstarter campaign, THE+RECORD PLAYER will make its first North American appearance to eager visitors at New York Audio Show, Nov 10th – 12th, in room #803.
Until now, no other all-in-one turntable system has suceeded in crafting the elusive combination of elegant design, advanced features and uncompromising audio in a compact one-unit package. THE+RECORD PLAYER checks all of these boxes to please discerning vinyl enthusiasts seeking a compact, high quality turntable solution to enjoy their record collection without the cost and complexity of a traditional component system.
Scandinavian designer Alexander Åhnebrink brings a modern elegance to THE+RECORD PLAYER within a product category most often associated with retro-style. The clean lines and Maple or Walnut finish choices of THE+RECORD PLAYER blend seamlessly with any living space and its intutive, no-fuss user interface makes it easy to enjoy the music.
A highly versatile analog and digital music system, THE+RECORD PLAYER offers a variety of listening options. A custom turntable by Pro-Ject offers stabilized 33/45 rpm vinyl playback, as well as Bluetooth, optical digital input, and a USB input/output to rip to a MAC or PC and play back your music files. A special auto signal sensing line input and 5-Volt power supply is provided for seamless integration of Amazon Echo or Google Cast audio adaptors.
The standard version of THE+RECORD PLAYER features an aluminum tonearm and Ortofon OM10 cartridge. For those seeking a more premium combination, THE+RECORD PLAYER Carbon Edition adds a carbon fiber tonearm and upgrades the cartridge to an Ortofon 2M Red.
Most all-in-one record players lack high quality sound, making the category quickly dismised by HiFi afficinados. THE+RECORD PLAYER includes a powerful bi-amplified 100W speaker system, providing clear and accurate sound reproduction with the balanced low-bass and well-defined highs expected by HiFi enthusiasts. The room-filling, detailed and balanced sound of THE+RECORD PLAYER is an ear-opening experience. “THE+RECORD PLAYER provides the vinyl listening options today’s enthusiastic consumers demand, from streaming device integration to superb audio quality – all from a stylish and compact system that compliments any décor,” said Bob Hazelwood, Chief Engineer. “We are excited to bring this premium quality single-box solution to market, kicking it off in North America at the New York Audio Show.”
THE+RECORD PLAYER will begin shipping in Q1, 2018 with a retail price of $999 for the standard model, and $1199 for the limited Carbon Edition. Available in both Maple and Walnut finishes.
