Not exactly high-end solution and something I would call “world first intelligent turntable”, but surely an interesting forward thinking design and what it seems, a fully working, 21st century approach to the vinyl records reproduction…
Finely crafted by Yves Behar who aimed at designing a timeless high-end turntable. The beauty and uniqueness lie in its movement: a form that feels in motion just by the shape, a form that reflects the beauty of its surrounding, a form that is elegantly curious with counter clockwise rotation on a still record, doing so in the utmost silence.
LOVE maintains the intimacy and quality of vinyl records but adds modern day smart features, while keeping the crackles & pops. LOVE is the first high-end, smartphone controlled record player that you can use with or without its app.
LOVE turns counterclockwise on a still record. It can be controlled by a smartphone to play records, skip and repeat tracks, alter the volume, and even select different RPM speeds. It is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible.
Listen with ease. Place any size record on the LOVE turntable record base to scan the vinyl and determine speed. For example if you want to listen to track 3: You can start playing your record by either pressing LOVE’s top shell three times or selecting the track through the app.
LOVE’s smartphone app allows you to play, pause, skip tracks, repeat tracks, select rpm speeds, adjust the volume & display the album cover.
LOVE connects to speakers, headphones, receivers, multi-room systems and more wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and directly via 3.5mm cord or RCA Bluetooth adapter.
With LOVE, we chose the best materials on the market, coupled a traditional size cartridge and stylus to deliver a quality audio experience.
