There are some music buffs that live by the quality of sound produced by a gramophone record. It’s quite understandable given those records have a nice retro feel to them and they do make great music. Of course, you need an appropriate player to listen to your records. So, why don’t you try out the Floating Record?
Built by a company called Gramovox, The Floating Record is a fascinating new take on the ol’ turntable. They took the turntable and literally turned it on its side. Yes, that’s right. The Floating Record is a vertical turntable.
The problem with most vertical turntables is that there is a risk of the record falling out to meet the floor. That always ends badly for the record. However, the Floating Record solves this issue by means of a clamp system. What makes it even better is that it is simply gorgeous. It comes with a wooden finish; you can choose between maple and walnut. That gives it a modern aesthetic that works well with all interiors. The Floating Record gives an artistic touch to playing LP music. It even saves space!
Of course, the audio is the most crucial component of any LP player and the Floating Record shines here. This turntable comes with two speakers located in its base. You can even shift between 45RPM and 33.5RPM with ease. It gets better: you can plug in your stereo system if you want.
It is the perfect tool for the audiophile but even noobs will find it easy to use the Floating Record. There seems to be a huge demand for it considering that it reached its Kickstarter funding goal of $50,000 in less than 3 hours. By the end of the campaign, Gramovox had more than $1.5 million in funding. Damn!
