Avail­able for pre-or­der from Un­com­monGoods through Kick­starter be­fore a re­lease on the on­line re­tailer’s web­site at a later date, the Vin­tage Vinyl Blue­tooth Speaker promi­nently fea­tures a re­claimed vinyl LP re­pur­posed into the shape of a gramo­phone.

Mix­ing mod­ern and retro, the speaker fea­tures a coax­ial speaker spe­cially cho­sen to com­pli­ment the horn shape built into a ply­wood en­clo­sure, and (as its name sug­gests) the vin­tage Vinyl Blue­tooth Speaker also fea­tures Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity.

The prod­uct was cre­ated in a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Un­com­monGoods and a com­pany called Viny­lux, which has been mak­ing prod­ucts out of re­claimed vinyl for fif­teen years.

Back­ers to the Kick­starter cam­paign can se­lect a genre that will de­ter­mine what vinyl LP will be used to build their speaker. La­bels with cus­tomised text or al­bum art­work can also be added for an ad­di­tional cost, or back­ers can choose to send in their favourite al­bum to be used.

The Kick­starter cam­paign runs un­til June 17, with re­wards start­ing at US$185 ($249). Once re­leased, the speaker will re­tail for US$235 ($316).
