Sony PS-HX500 Hi-Res USB Turntable

Jan 12, 2016

Category: Tech

Sony’s first turntable, the PS-HX500, sees the company aiming their iron sights at audiophiles and vinyl enthusiasts with a new take on audio technology: it can convert analog files into Sony’s DSD format or 24-bit WAV files (used by audio engineers and producers).

If you’re into great sounding vinyl, this new turntable will play them just like any other high-end contemporary turntable. But what sets it apart from its competitors is the fact that it can convert analog files with ease — all you need is a USB cable and Sony’s back-up creating software that works with both PC and Mac. It also comes with a newly designed app that will allow users to easily edit those files. It also doesn’t hurt that the turntable sports a gorgeous, minimalist aesthetic. The turntable is expected to hit the market later this spring. [Purchase]
