You just have to think of it: a record player to take with you. Is the Victrola Revolution GO the ultimate gadget for the vinyl enthusiast?
Vinyl, remarkably popular
Everyone has fallen for digital sound carriers such as the already obsolete compact disc and digital files that you can listen to illegally via streaming servers, via App Stores or, wow. Really everyone? No.
The diehard vinyl lovers remain faithful to the old-fashioned LP. Because let’s be honest, for a real enthusiast there is nothing like the experience of the scratching sound of a sapphire or diamond needle in the grooves of the vinyl. And hope that there is no scratch in the vulnerable material. Since the low point of 2008, sales of vinyl records have increased by a factor of 10, which is remarkable for a retro technology. So a lot of new vinyl lovers have arrived.
Victrola Revolution Go, a portable record player
The Victrola Revolution Go fits into this trend. This portable record player of around 3 kg and with dimensions of 30 x 30 x 12 cm is quite a clumsy thing to take with you. But that is of course exactly the intention of vinyl, that it is clumsy. Because if you take a stock of records with you, you will soon be 180 g further per record. The real vinyl lover will only find this beautiful. Certainly, because this marvel of technology is provided with a carrying strap, just like you find on guitars.
It is remarkable that this is also quite a modern device. It works on a battery, and it has Bluetooth so that the sound of the album can be streamed over a Bluetooth speaker.
Positive and Negative Sides of the Victrola Revolution Go
Positive sides of the Victrola Revolution Go are the high quality of the sound, that it can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker, that the vinyl can be sent to other Bluetooth speakers and of course the trendy retro design.
You can play records with a speed of 33, 45 and 78 rpm and with an attachment, you can also play the singles.
On the other hand, it’s just a pretty heavy and bulky thing, the bass response is mediocre and it’s not possible to send sound through the internal speaker and via Bluetooth at the same time.
Do you like this as a true vinyl lover, and do you want to take a trip back in time? Then you can purchase this device for € 230.
