Elipson 100 RIAA BT
ONE FOR THE TECH-HEAD
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
