Wurlitzer is synonymous with the word jukebox, so it’s no surprise to see the company whip up a digital version called the Lyra.  At the center of this music machine is a 15-inch touchscreen that incorporates their own special interface that replicates the turntable experience.  From there you can access Internet radio or 320GB of stored music thanks to the built-in hard drive.  Adding tunes is as simple as popping in a disc into it’s CD/DVD burner.  Alternatively, you can just plug-in a portable device or memory card into one of its compatible slots.  Two high fidelity speakers blast out the high and mids, while a 10-inch active subwoofer handles the lows all powered by a 200 watt amplifier.

We’re hearing that costs close to $5,000.  For that kind of money we’d rather have the real thing.  After all, nothing beats old world charm.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
