When record players first started coming onto the scene in the 1920’s, they were a fairly bulky affair, especially when compared to Charlie Pyott’s brilliant concept for a portable USB vinyl record player, the “Linos”.
You simply plug the jack into a USB outlet adapter or computer and turn on the power to raise the player arm and make the record spin.
The player carries two warnings for discerning buyers. Do not use if you:
- Do not like music
- Are an audiophile
