All those with an admiration for old-school vinyl records, will be delighted with this new turntable device designed by Swiss designer Yves Béhar. Dubbbed LOVE, this portable audio device allows music fans to play vinyl directly from their smartphone. LOVE is billed as the “first intelligent turntable” that connects to your phone and speakers through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
The system comes with two 7-inch record bases and LOVE device, a smartphone-shaped unit with a glossy black top and rose-gold bottom that scans records to measure their size and the number of tracks. It can be controlled by a smartphone to play records, skip and repeat tracks, alter the volume and even select different RPM speeds at the touch of a button.
It launches on Sunday, February 12, when will be available for $299 for the first 500 backers, including a “Free for Life” LOVE app account with unlimited access to a wide range of premium features.
