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.

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.
