The latest best turntables for vinyl records from Victrola not only want to convince customers with a modern design but above all with direct integration into a Sonos system, so that your record collection can be played wirelessly on compatible speakers.
Turntables can already be integrated into an existing Sonos system via a Sonos Connect or a Sonos Amp (approx. $700 on Amazon), but record player Victrola is now going one step further and building the corresponding streaming features directly into a turntable, what that Setup is significantly simplified and potentially saves money as no additional devices are required to transfer.
Victrola promises a simple setup and the ability to control the turntable directly from the Sonos app. The record can be played back by any Sonos loudspeaker in your system, even in several rooms at the same time. The turntable even has an illuminated rotary control that can be used to adjust the volume of the connected Sonos devices. An RCA output allows connection to speakers from other manufacturers.
The Victrola Stream is the most expensive record player that the company manufactures – Victrola was previously known primarily for models with a retro design such as the Victrola Classic (approx. $100 on Amazon). This high price should also be justified by the better sound that is to be achieved by an Ortofon 2M Red, a carbon tonearm, and a newly developed housing. The belt drive supports both 33 1/3 and 45 rpm records.
