The Turnstyle Concept Turntable Defines Minimalism

first_imgTurntables have something of a definitive look, but designer R.D. Silva’s Turnstyle Turntable is built to remove all of the bulk and extra material from a turntable and reduce it to its most essential components: essentially a motor that a record can be mounted to, a needle and cartridge on a movable arm, power and volume controls, and a weight in the back to keep the needle on the record and the player in one place. Ironically, the Turnstyle has a built-in speaker, which most people wouldn’t consider essential on a record player.  The Turnstyle is just a prototype, and it’s not clear if it will ever be a product anyone could actually order, but it’s definitely an interesting design.AdChoices广告last_img
