Are you a vinyl fan? We know plenty of audiophiles are all about it. Today’s speaker will represent your love for records while giving any room an awesome vintage touch. In essence, this is simply a Bluetooth speaker; it is its design and materials that make it special. An actual vinyl is shaped to look like a horn loudspeaker, while the rest of the body highly resembles a classic gramophone.
Where things get fun is in customization. You can choose the album, as well as the label. Pledging $195 will get you a speaker made with an album representative of your genre of choice. Options include 60s Rock, 70s Rock, The 80s, Disco, Jazz and more. Pledge $205 and you get to create your own custom label or design the album artwork. You can even submit your own favorite album to be built into the speaker. If you don’t have it, pledge $250 and the team will find it for you.
It is not the cheapest Bluetooth speaker around, but you are buying more than just a speaker. This will be a representation of musical history and your own taste. Are any of you signing up?
