Posted June 25, 2015

The Floating Record is a turntable that plays your records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers (or via RCA line out).

The design philosophy is to reimagine vintage audio design with modern technology. The Floating Record is designed for everyone from the first-time record listener to the seasoned vinyl enthusiast. You don’t need to set up your cartridge or purchase additional outboard gear such as phono pre-amps, amplifiers and speakers, all of these are included in the integrated design.

It uses a belt drive system with a silicone belt to help isolate motor vibrations from the platter. You can easily switch between 33 ⅓ or 45 RPM by moving the silicon belt over the inner or outer groove of the middle gear.

It also comes with a dynamic, full-range audio system with Tymphany 2” neodymium speakers driven by a 15w per channel digital amplifier. The speaker cavities incorporate tuned bottom porting to offer superior bass response.
