Elipson 100 RIAA BT

ONE FOR THE TECH-HEAD

Australian T3 - - VINY REVIVAL - CLAIRE DAVIES, AS­SIS­TANT EDI­TOR

Here’s some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent. The Elipson Omega 100 RIAA BT (yes, we know that’s a mouth­ful) is the world’s first Blue­tooth turntable, mean­ing it can trans­mit your vinyl over the air to your Blue­tooth-en­abled speak­ers or amp. Elipson says it’ll work within a ten-me­tre range, and that it’s aptX (which will give you a sound closer to wired than stan­dard Blue­tooth. Cool, huh?). And not only that, thanks to the USB out­put, you can also rip your vinyl to digital files, ar­chiv­ing your col­lec­tion at up to 24-bit/48kHz (so you can lis­ten to it on the go on a por­ta­ble player, for in­stance).

But that’s just half the story – the Omega is a fine deck in its own right, and comes with the ex­cel­lent Orto­fon OM10 car­tridge. It also looks the part with a high-gloss, acrylic-lac­quer fin­ish. What’s more, it’s a great-priced deck to get started with. $999, elipson.com/en

It’s hard to be­lieve, but this is the world’s first Blue­tooth turntable
