The all-in-one turntable "Max LP" equipped with a USB terminal and stereo speakers is likely to rediscover the appeal of analog. It has been on sale since November last year from Numark Japan Corporation's audio brand "Ion Audio".
This product is a record player that allows you to enjoy a wide range of viewing methods, including built-in stereo speakers and headphones, as well as connecting to your home component from the RCA analog output terminal. It is compatible with almost all vinyl records, such as 33-1 / 3, 45, and 78 rotations.
You can also convert analog record audio to digital files by connecting a PC or iOS device to the USB port and using the included EZ Vinyl / Tape Converter software or app. The software has a function that automatically divides files for each track, and after conversion, it can be imported to a portable music player or burned to a CD.
Furthermore, it is equipped with an external input terminal for a stereo mini jack, so it seems that external sources such as cassette decks can also be digitized.
The approximate size of the main body is W418 x H103 x D387 mm. It weighs about 3.5 kg. The simple design of the dust cover and natural wood panel seems to match the interior of the room and the warm analog playback sound.
The price is 12,800 yen (tax included). The official website is currently out of stock, and the next arrival is scheduled for February.
