Turntable Gets A Makeover

The majority may be hooked to their digital players but there plenty of old-schoolers who hang on to their vinyl for dear life. Trying to appease this segment is “Linos”, a portable record player. Ditching the traditional full platter configuration for modern sensibilities, this player takes into consideration the space demands and limited mobility of regular turntables. Simply load the record to the lower spindle element and lock it into place from above. Pushing down on the power icon then releases the tonearm and spins up the record. Hook up the player to your comp via micro USB for sound and powering or use the USB power adapter with standard stereo jack output.

    This looks awesome! Is it just a concept or is this really out there?

    These already exist. The Emerson Wondergram, the Audio technica SoundBurger, to name a couple. They've been around for 50 years and can be found on ebay for about $150. Stupid rip off design.

    Sadly the days of high quality music reproduction have given way to convenience and ease of use. "Ditching the traditional full platter configuration for modern sensibilities"? Modern sensibilities? Is this a joke? Today's music, if you can call it that is some of the most canned unmusical rubbish ever to fall upon human ears and yet the kids believe this is music. Where's it all going? Anything can be called "music"? Two tom cats screaming in the middle of the night laid to a synthetic beat with a little bad rap poetry thrown in is likely to become a number one hit if there's enough bad language included. Who the heck wants to reproduce that stuff anyway. I you're willing to trade convenience for quality reproduction then buy one of these and stick on some rap then play it through those totally useless little speakers and the old reliable sub-whoofer just to kmake certain there is no definition between bass drum and bass guitar (oh yes, they don't actually exist in most modern noise) sit back and grind yer teeth to more schnazz that calls itself music.

  • Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its niche. Amazing blog!

  • Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
