Of course we all know that vinyl is making a well deserved comeback and last year vinyl sales made up 18% of all physical albums bought across the globe.
However, to be a vinyl lover still requires a lot of investment in terms of space and money, something that not everyone has the luxury of just to get that classic vinyl crackle.
As much as we love the vinyl platform, it’s not geared up for listening on the train to work or at the gym but there is a new option in terms of listening to your precious wax in a convenient way.
Coming in at the size of a smartphone, the Rokblok is a small motorized speaker that will circumnavigate your favourite records whilst playing them aloud on it’s built in speaker.
Simply place your record on a flat surface,lower the control needle and away the Rokblok goes traveling around and playing your record.
The unit also comes with bluetooth functionality enabling you to wirelessly listen on your favourite headphones or bluetooth speaker.
With a battery life of 4 hours, a diamond tipped needle and a lightweight bamboo construction, the unit is priced at a modest $99 USD.
We’ll certainly be grabbing one to test it out and who knows this maybe the future of consumer vinyl listening!
