Vertical Vinyl Player turns the record player on its side

Posted in Turntables by Reuben Drake on May 26th, 2011

If you like vinyl but have no desk space, the Vertical Vinyl Player is perfect. It puts the record player on your wall. It operates the same as a standard record player, it just stays out of your way and makes a decorative statement.

Time to dig out all of that old vinyl and give this thing a try. It will handle between 33 or 45 RPM speeds and is battery powered so there are no wires messing up your wall.

Cardboard Record Package doubles as player

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2010

This is pretty awesome design. Sound engineering company, GGRP offers a record inside of a corrugated cardboard sleeve. That by itself is unimpressive, but when it is unfolded, the cardboard sleeve can be converted into a record player.

So you play the record by using the cardboard sleeve it came in and a pencil to turn the record. Instructions are printed on the cardboard sleeve if you need them. Awesome idea. Great promotion tool too.

Gramophone record player and recorder

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2010

Bah. In my day, records skipped and hissed and crackled in your ear. And that’s the way we liked it. Well, my retro-loving analog friend, check out your new non-digital player. And when I say player, I mean record player. Gakken’s Gramophone kit will take you back in time and it can play records of any size. It uses a bamboo needle to reproduce your vinyl music.

Maybe the coolest feature is that it lets you record your own music directly to vinyl, so you can make your own records. Records which won’t play in your car, on your walkman, in your CD player etc.

Void LP Player

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2009

Void LP PlayerThis may be the coolest record player concept ever. The Void LP Player concept from Rhea Jeong consists of a magnetic levitating disc carrier plus a small self contained player in a ball with an integrated needle, amplifier and speaker all wrapped up in one. Truly a space age record player.

The record player uses a carrier and dock with a magnetic and auto-calibrating control system that holds the LP in thin air as it is playing. The record player in the form of a red sphere, contains a needle, amplifier and speaker and spins around the record.

Star Trek Enterprise Record Player

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2009

Star Trek Enterprise Record PlayerThis Star Trek Enterprise record player was designed from the NCC-1701 version from the new Star Trek movie and uses the saucer section as the turntable, sending your music where no man has gone before. Sadly it’s not real and was just designed to make us all drool, along with 24 other funky looking Enterprises.

There’s an Enterprise on roller skates, a creepy insect Enterprise and more. You’ll never look at the ship in the same way again. Look, I’m a dork and I really want this Enterprise record player. So somebody create it already.

DIY Lego record player

Is there anything Lego can’t do? This guy builds himself an authentic old time record player using Legos and a plastic cup in under 3 minutes. Then proceeds to play himself a record, thereby proving the whole deal isn’t just the product of too much bong water. In this video we also learn that a coffee cup will improve the sound quality of a Lego turntable. Lego 8-Track anyone?


Lusso art-deco turntable costs a fortune

Lusso art-deco turntable costs a fortune
I can only assume that this awesome looking art-deco style turntable is the direct result of Tim Burton and Beetlejuice wanting to listen to some vinyl together.(The stripes. Get it?) The design is really simple, yet awesome. Thing is, you’ll need a hefty bank account, as this thing is priced to suck up your money faster then a gold-digger needing botox.

Prices start from $47,000 upwards. That’s a ton of dough for a bunch of black circular rings with a silver aluminum backdrop. Germans being the engineering elite that they are, I’m sure it’s top notch, but we’re playing freakin records here. The Lusso features three height adjustable connected cones made from alternating layers of aluminum and black acrylic.

Soundwagon portable record player

Soundwagon portable Record player
If you love old records, but don’t have the space for a turntable, then the Soundwagon Portable Record Player is for you. It’s the smallest portable record player in the world, and it’s an officially licensed Volkswagen van that will drive around the record as it plays your favorite vinyl records.

The sound is via an integrated speaker. I wouldn’t expect top notch sound, but watching an old VW drive along your old record will probably take you back in time. It will cost $90 and will give those old records another shot at life.

Vestax Guber CM-02 USB turntable means business

Vestax Guber CM-02 USB turntable means business
The Vestax Guber CM-02 USB turntable looks like it was rushed out of the factory only half completed, which is why we love it. It wasn’t overly thought out and so it doesn’t look like crap.

It’s simple, clean and sexy, and has a great super sleek, modern look. It will allow you to convert all your old favorites on vinyl into MP3 format. Prices vary from $233 in th US to $499 in Japan. If all turntables looked like this one, vinyl might never have died.
