SonoNix is a new retro style vinyl record player equipped with the latest technology combining both old and new into one sleek minimalistic turntable. Launched via Kickstarter the record player has raised over $100,000 thanks to over 370 backers with still nine days remaining. The addition of Nixie tubes provide a handy time function and the record player is capable of playing 33⅓ rpm, 45 rpm, and 78 rpm speeds. Early bird pledges are now available for the creative project from roughly $229 or £196 (depending on current exchange rates).
“A vintage record player harbors an emotion, a quest for music, and a flow of life. But technology alone is not enough to make a product special. Instead, a unique style that combines modern and retro creates a futuristic beauty that is undeniable. As times change, ingenious designers blend style and technology. SonoNix combines these elements with minimalist beauty and stunning design to define a new technical aesthetic.”
Assuming that the SonoNix funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and fullfilment progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around . To learn more about the SonoNix Nixie tube turntable project checkout the promotional video below.
