The Miniot’s Wheel Minimalist Record Player is Going to Change the Way You Listen to Music
Miniot’s Wheel minimalist record player is the best way to start the day! You’ll never listen to new music the old way, thanks to this new record player.
Yes, it is true, it is a thing that was hot in the past, but nostalgia is stronger these days and it will be raised back to popularity.
This new record player got another face, short of, and has come to turn all the heads in its direction.
The old record player you all knew got an upgrade to fit with the modern times and Miniot knew exactly what that was.
The designers were looking to bring back the elegance of playing music, the feeling you have when you listened to a good vinyl, which were lost in this era where technology is everywhere.
Miniot’s minimalist device combines an old form of music with new technology and created a neat, circular player that is controlled by a central joystick.
The Wheel is a luxurious-looking record player turned upside down; yes I know you were thinking about it.
The company explains that ‘everything happens behind the scenes,’ meaning all technology is neatly built into the round plate below the record and you have an unobstructed view of whichever album you choose to spin.
Manufactured in Holland, by Miniot, the tiny family-run company known for its meticulously handcrafted cases for phones and tablets, this turntable is one of a kind.
Its tonearm and stylus are located under the record, inside the cavity of the rotating platter.
Thanks to that feature your records spin counterclockwise, with the Wheel able to be hung on the wall to disorient your friends even more.
And because it’s from Miniot, the tonearm is milled from a single piece of laminated mahogany, while Wheel’s base will be offered in choices of mahogany, walnut, or cherry.
That stick at the center controls all the functions: on / off, pause / play, and volume and will let you skin between songs.
As cool as it might look, let’s not forget this is a Kickstarter project and that means there’s risk involved for the buyer.
If we were to put a number to that risk it will be €568, which is about 30 percent of the expected retail price of €806 ($850) whenever Wheel reaches production status.
