This week the folks at Pyle have revealed another masterpiece in their ever-growing line of turntable devices - keeping the classic art of vinyl records on the minds of the public while the connect with next-wave technology. This newest iteration of the Pyle vision is the Retro Belt-Drive Turntable, made to be your fold-away solution for spinning your favorite vinyl-plated favorites on the go.
This machine is able to connect to your PC directly via USB, allowing you to take your mom and dad's record collection and convert it into MP3 files using the software included in the box - Audacity, that is. The model number on this beast is PVTT2U, having a rather small effect on the final outcome of your newly-minted go-anywhere sound system. Inside you've got two built-in anti-magnetic speakers that are forward-facing rather than upward facing as many ancient systems were - here you're going full force forward for the future.
The way you charge this beast is through its USB port. This is the same way you connect to it with your PC. Unlike many models in the past, you've got a rechargeable battery in this machine, allowing you to charge up, pack up, and play right out in the middle of a field. Bring some flower people music with you and have a good ol' summer shindig if you wish!
The full unit is 10.63 x 13.78 x 4.33 inches and you'll be able to work with Stereo RCA output as well - connect to your massive speakers! You'll be able to switch between 33, 45, and 78 RPM for your different sized albums - full-sized, singles, and in-betweens! This machine will be available to you right this minute (or rather soon) from Pyle Audio straight from their online store for $188.99 USD - sounds like a hot early Spring pick-up for the Black Sabbath fan in all of you, yes?
Note also that we've previously reviewed the PLTTB8UI Record Player and found it be be rather fabulous - big time!
