Nothing screams retro quite like a briefcase-style turntable. The vintage appearance of Pyle Audio’s Retro Belt-Drive Turntable (PVTT2U), belies its ability to keep pace with modern audio technologies, though.
Integrated into the fold-away unit are two anti-magnetic stereo speakers. In addition to playing vinyl records, the PVTT2U connects directly to your computer via a USB port, allowing for easy conversion of vinyl music to MP3s. The turntable comes with software so you can edit the music files you made from your vinyl collection and create playlists – the perfect combination of analog and digital technologies. And, like many new technologies, the PVTT2U is completely wireless, thanks to a rechargeable battery. You can charge the turntable by plugging it into a AC-USB adapter or into your computer.
There are three turntable speeds: 33, 45 and 78 RPM, a stereo RCS output, and a ceramic stereo cartridge. The PVTT2U retails for $188.99.
