Pyle Audio has pushed old school to the limits of new school with this portable record player. Sure, it’s a turntable for all your super-hip vinyls (one of the few types of physical media on the rise among young buyers), but it’s also a Bluetooth-based music streamer – and a suitcase.
The all-in-one record player supplements its basic two-speed turntable with Bluetooth wireless streaming for a gaggle of Bluetooth-enabled devices and even allows you to convert vinyl recordings into MP3 files for transfer and sharing…although audiophiles might balk at digitizing their beloved songs.
There’s a 3.5mm auxiliary line in and a stereo RCA output built into the product, and the player comes with an AC power adapter. It also comes with some music editing software, which you can perhaps use to clear up scratchy areas when converting records or just have fun tweaking your own rhythms while rocking out to some vinyls.
As if this wasn’t enough, the whole thing is also portable, framed in a wooden cabinet that doubles as a suitcase. The sides even open up into portable speakers so you can play your tunes wherever you are – on a reasonably level surface, of course.
Pyle’s creation is a great all-in-one device for vinyl lovers who also like to take their music on the go. You could buy it as a gift for the hipster who has everything, or purchase it yourself if you love music in all forms. The retail price is $109.99, and it comes with a one-year warranty. Pyle has made a specialty of these hybrid record players, so if you would be more interested in versions that include card readers, radios, or other bits of audio tech, spend some time looking around the site.
