TONE Factory has created a new minimalist record turntable and Bluetooth speaker which is now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from €199 or roughly £168. Worldwide shipping is expected to take place during June 2020 and early bird backers can benefit from a €50 discount off the recommended retail price.
“TONE Factory was developed for those who love vinyl and design. For those who enjoy coming home and relaxing to analog music. For those who buy vinyl but can’t afford a complete hi-fi system. For those who like it slow but sometimes prefer the fast and easy way. We designed TONE turntable by rethinking every single part of a classic turntable. The aim was to create a minimalist turntable that is timeless and stands out as a beautiful piece of furniture. The square base chassis is carefully painted CNC-engineered MDF. On top of the chassis sits the platter. The platter is just thick enough to make lifting up the vinyl easy while still thin enough to maintain the sleek look.“
“TONE Factory was started by young designers and vinyl lovers who shared a strong vision: to create a turntable produced in Europe that was not only affordable and easy to use but beautifully designed as well. We found that many people would love to listen to vinyl, but believe they have to buy a complete hi-fi system which is too expensive and complicated. TONE Factory wants to offer an easy solution for vinyl beginners and analog enthusiasts. Your TONE turntable can play 33 and 45 RPM records. It features an electronic switch for the speed change. The On/Off switch has three positions: middle is OFF, right is 45 PRM, and left is 33 RPM.”
