Music is one of the great joys of life and music fans can’t deny that it simply sounds better coming from vinyl. There is something about a vinyl record player that elevates not only the sound of the music but the feeling in the room that can’t be replicated on digital. Which is why this Kickstarter project immediately caught our eye.
The Floating Record is a high-performance turntable that plays your records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers, offering a new mechanical and visual way to experience vinyl music. Designed by Chicago audio engineering and design start-up Gramovox, the Floating Record is a re-imagined record player that showcases your vinyls as both art and a medium to, resulting in a high-performance turntable that plays your records vertically —producing the illusion that it’s floating.
Made with premium, American dark walnut or maple wood bases, the Floating Record looks as good as the sound it outputs. It also cuts down on the space of traditional record players with its fully integrated design, allowing it to easily fit into most environments and add a sense of vintage and modern stylings.
The Kickstarter project has been successfully backed and the final product will be shipping in December 2015. You can check out the page here to preorder yours now.
