You know what the world needs? More retro. All this gleaming chrome and glossy colors stuff is all right, but after a while it all begins to look the same. Maybe that’s why we’re starting to choose more materials like bamboo, to try and restore some sense of quality to the whole tech gadget thing.
So let’s all give out a little cheer for this Pyle PTCDS3UIP Trumpet Horn Turntable, which seems to deliver where it counts. They’re calling it a classical player, but we think it’s much more Thomas Edison vintage retro than that. All that delicious matt brass, carved wood and a HUGE brass horn? Yum!
The spec isn’t bad either. As well as a three speed turntable, it’s got an integrated USB MP3 player, tape cassette player, vinyl to MP3 conversion via a USB port, iPod playback capabilities and an FM/AM radio. They’re also saying the price is $299.99, which is almost retro in itself.
