I really like the design of the Revolution; it’s not necessarily practical (and of course, serious vinyl fans will blanch – blanch! – at the unprotected record) but it’s definitely tiny and the price is right – only $US150. It runs on battery power (they’ll probably go with rechargeable AA) or AC, has a USB out and a 3.5mm headphone jack (no RCA-out). It’s not really meant for your entertainment console, hooked up to a real stereo, but for a bedroom turntable it sounds really great. It also will feature software (probably made by a veeeery interesting partner that I’m not at liberty to name) that will identify and tag your vinyl-to-digital rips. The Revolution should be available in mid to late summer for $US150, in black at first and then in a variety of colours. [Crosley]
