Time to dig out all of that old vinyl and give this thing a try. It will handle between 33 or 45 RPM speeds and is battery powered so there are no wires messing up your wall.

PlayStation Move and a turntable used to track the Earth’s rotation

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2011

Fancy yourself an amateur scientist? Do you want to track the Earth’s rotation from your home? Well, if you have a few simple tools, you can do just that. The device above is called Copernitron and features a PlayStation Move controller, a turntable, and a homebrew Helmholtz coil which cancels out interference caused by our planet’s magnetic field.

It sends data to a Linux PC via Bluetooth and measures the Earth’s rotation, locates geographic north, and determines altitude. This is achieved by measuring the controller’s movements as it spins around at 45 RPM.

Crosley unveils new portable CR6002A turntable

Posted in Turntables by Shane McGlaun on September 16th, 2010

I remember the old vinyl records that my parents had around the house as a kid. I had a few records when I was young too. I once left my copy of Funky Town in the sun only to find it melted and warped later. If you have a bunch of old records you want to listen to on the go or make into digital tracks Crosley has a new turntable for you.

The turntable is called the CR6002A and is a small and portable device that leaves the edges of the record uncovered. The device supports both 33 1/3 and 45-RPM records and has an integrated FM transmitter.

Denon celebrates 100th birthday with this amazing Turntable

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2010

To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Denon has debuted a line of celebratory gear, which includes this beautiful direct drive turntable. The DP-A100 uses the same high-torque motor Denon developed in 1970, in sexy glossy black and gold.

We hear ya. Yes direct-drive turntables can suffer from the motor transmitting vibrations to the record, but not to fear, Denon gets around this by applying a dampening silicon rubber to the underside of the aluminum platter.

Montegiro’s Legno luxury wooden turntable

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2009

Montegiro’s Legno luxury wooden turntableIsn’t it ironic that some of the most beautiful turntables have shown up long after the days of vinyl? If only we had had such beauty back in the days of records. Germany based company, Montegiro, has a new high-end audio system in the form of the new Legno turntable.

It uses bamboo as well as high-grade steel to produce beautiful music from your old vinyl collection. The company decided to use a bamboo chassis because of the wood’s stabilizing and resonance-damping properties. There are also four adjustable and high-grade steel feet with rubber O-rings. The Montegiro’s Legno luxury wooden turntable is now available for a mind-blowing $13,240.

Amazing Angelis Labor Gabriel luxury turntable

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008

Amazing Angelis Labor Gabriel luxury turntableThe “Gabriel” turntable from Angelis Labor resembles a starship construction yard more than a fancy record player. Four separate arms will ride the grooves of your vinyl treasures on a platter that is suspended on a magnetically levitated spindle. Mmmm. Shiny and nice. Four arms are better then one, I guess.

If you actually had a robot willing to play your old records, this is pretty much what it would look like. The price is just as mind-blowing of course “between $27k-$64k”. I know that some of you will disagree, but is the sound that you are going to get from vinyl ever worth that much money?

A hard drive hacked into a turntable

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on November 13th, 2008

A hard drive hacked into a turntableIf you’re a DJ or a wannabe DJ, you’ll want a turntable that sets you apart from the rest. You could spend some real money to get yourself a decent set-up or you can make your own if you have an old hard drive laying around. That’s what a group of students at universities in the UK, Austria, and New Zealand did.

They all worked together to come up with a digital DJ interface, and the HDD-turntable you see above sits at the center. The students fell in love with the weight of the disk and the quality of its bearings. All you need are “a few op amps, resistors and a programmable microcontroller of some kind” and you can be mixing like they do. Hit the link for instructions.

First details of DJ Hero game

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2008

First Details Of DJ Hero GameLiving room DJ’s can now also be poseurs, joining the ranks of plastic guitar Gods everywhere. After two years of development, the “controller” for the new game is basically a “simplified DJ deck” as you might expect. You get a platter for scratching; sampling buttons; cross fader; and a sound effects dial which is the equivalent of the whammy bar in Guitar Hero.

It should hit shelves this summer and word is it will include the ability to use Guitar Hero guitars for versus mode face-offs. No flowing musical notes gliding down a guitar neck here. Instead, DJ Hero will flow the music down and around a virtual record in a half arc. Either left top to middle bottom if you are left handed, or right top to middle bottom if you are right handed. Wannabe DJ’s I’m sure have been waiting for this, as for the rest of you, do you guys have any room left in your home after buying all the other games?

Turntable Watch from Tokidoki is retro cool

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2008

Turntable Watch from Tokidoki is retro cool
It doesn’t get more 80′s then this. The Tokidoki company has come up with this nice looking watch that outdoes the turntable watch we told you about many months ago.

It ups the retro pop feel with vibrant colors and a nice 80s style. It makes me feel like cranking some Huey Lewis and the News while messing around on my hoverboard. The vinyl face rotates as each second ticks by. The time is displayed on the left side, looking like a radio dial. Stainless steel with leather strap. My geek mind is convinced that if you wear something this outrageously retro, Doc Brown will show up in his DeLorean. Which is why I’m getting one.

DIY Lego record player

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2008


Is there anything Lego can’t do? This guy builds himself an authentic old time record player using Legos and a plastic cup in under 3 minutes. Then proceeds to play himself a record, thereby proving the whole deal isn’t just the product of too much bong water. In this video we also learn that a coffee cup will improve the sound quality of a Lego turntable. Lego 8-Track anyone?
