Having been around since 1906, Victrola is no stranger to crafting high-end stereo equipment. With the majority of their turntables exuding a very design-centric motif, it’s their latest release’s sonic capabilities that manage to steal the show. With the release of their Premiere V1 Turntable System, the same company that crafted the phonograph goes to show that they will never go out of style.
Made up of the V1 Stereo Turntable and V1 Subwoofer, the primary draw between the two lies in the turntable’s internal stereo speakers and wireless subwoofer, creating a wall of sound that looks to fill up living spaces with a transcendent listening experience. And while Victrola has been around since 1906, they’re lending their hand over to the new generation of listening, implementing Bluetooth connectivity to the speaker, meaning you can stream audio to the system or, conversely, stream your record to a separate Bluetooth speaker. The system can be also connected to a TV via output jacks that transform the subwoofer into a soundbar, giving even more versatility to this futuristic Victrola. Equipped with a stylish dust cover so you won’t have to clean your needles religiously, the V1 Turntable System should serve as a seamless fit for any vinyl enthusiast’s home.
Finding a top-notch turntable is oft-bound to leave your wallet feeling a bit hollow, as the cream of the audial crop can easily stretch into the four-figure range. Victrola has managed to keep the price of the Premiere V1 Turntable System reasonable, though, pricing it at $500. There’s no release date yet for the system, but the brand lists it as coming soon.
