Catch the dance fever!

Both mods and squares will enjoy this retro-looking Bluetooth BT-500 Turntable with a clear, hinged top, reminiscent of those record players of yesteryear. But here, modern wisdom trumps disco-era sensibilities with its wireless and audio conversion capabilities. Listen to your favorite vinyl tunes via powered speaker or headphones, pair the turntable with Bluetooth® speakers, or convert the music to digital format.

No matter which way you spin it, listeners have a quality experience with the quiet, belt-driven system; a mechanically-isolated motor to eliminate motor noise and vibration; a heavy, die-cast aluminum platter; rubber record mat to reduce slippage; imperceptible wow and flutter; and a low-mass straight tonearm with adjustable counterweight.
