Everyone knows how unique the sound of a vinyl record is. No matter what new audio devices you have, there’s simply something special about records. Speaking about them, Shinola introduced the first addition to their new audio line- The Runwell Turntable. It was made together with VPI, one of the leading names in turntable manufacturing in the States.
While Shinola is best known for crafting high-quality watches, leather items, and bicycles, this turntable is part of a new initiative- Shinola Audio. The Runwell Turntable is made to be stylish, minimalistic and to last for many years. According to their press release, it’s “a two-speed, belt-driven turntable with an integrated phono preamplifier and will be equipped with an Ortofon 2M blue phono cartridge.”
The body mixes solid steel and aluminum machined elements with the sleek oak base. The preamplifier is manufactured by American Board Assembly. For more information, you can join the waiting list since it will be available this November. You should hurry though since there will be just 500 pieces. As for the price, it’s still to be confirmed, but it’s expected to be around $2,500.
