Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

Pyle Audio PLTTB8UI Record Player Review

I'm going to go right ahead and assume that most of the people checking out this review are here because they're confused about why SlashGear would review a vinyl record player. I think that's fair to wonder. There are two reasons, the first of which is the fact that this record player not only has audio input via a convenient little smartphone dock.

iPhone 5 mini dock connector talk snowballs

Talk of a new, smaller Apple dock connector to debut on the iPhone 5 continues to gather pace, with new sources saying the next-gen smartphone will indeed switch to a more compact port despite potential fury from accessory owners. Technical details on the port are still in general a mystery, but two insider sources tell Reuters that the iPhone 5 will indeed ditch the existing 30-pin connector that has been standard across many iPods and all generations of iPhone and iPad, so as to make space for a headphone jack on the bottom edge. However, while accessory manufacturers are rubbing their hands together in glee at the thought of a new wave of add-on-sales, users may be less enthused.
