Check This Floating Record Vertical Turntable
Although music sales overall are declining, vinyl records have managed to carve out a sort of boutique niche co-existing with popular streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, and now Apple Music’s streaming service. And to bring them into the 21st century for design and sound quality is the Gramovox Floating Record Vertical Turntable.
This turntable flips the old-school model on its head, literally: the Floating Record Vertical Turntable plays vinyls right-side-up. A belt spins the record (by changing the alignment of the belt you can play both 33 1/3 and 45 rpm records, too) and a custom carbon-fiber tonearm uses a spring to apply force that keeps it in touch with the album’s surface.
There are speakers mounted into the wood base of the Floating Record Vertical Turntable, too. However, it can also be hooked up to any other sound system that you have available.
Although the vertical turntable isn’t a completely new concept, the Floating Record Vertical Turntable is definitely the most practical, and its wooden base gives it a chic feel for interiors. Even without a huge record collection it’s going to look pretty cool on the shelf.
Clearly we’re not the only ones who think highly of the turntable, either: Gramovox’s Kickstarter campaign has received hundreds of thousand dollars more than its original asking price ($50,000), and there are still a few weeks left to contribute.
