Paying more than, ahem, lip-service to the Rolling Stones, Pro-Ject Audio Systems, the world-renowned manufacturers of premium Hi-Fi turntables and electronics, have unveiled a new Artist Series special-edition turntable collaboration with the vintage purveyors of powerful rock and roll.
The Rolling Stones Record Player is a truly wonderful collaboration between one of the world’s most iconic bands and a leading audiophile manufacturer. Adorned with the instantly recognisable ‘lips’ logo, first commissioned by lead singer Mick Jagger in 1970, for just the cosmetic appeal alone the turntable is a real collector’s item. But underneath the stunning shell, there’s still a high-quality turntable suited even to more expensive audio systems.
Based on the design of Pro-Ject’s own icon, the Rolling Stones Record Player has the same technical layout as the award-winning Debut III turntable. The thick, non-resonant MDF plinth, decoupling feet, premium synchronous motor and belt-drive system successfully combine to make a stable, silent platform for your vinyl. Finished with a sturdy metal platter and an 8.6-inch aluminium tonearm with Ortofon OM 10 cartridge, this special edition vinyl spinner will sing and perform like any other piece of luxury Hi-Fi.
The Rolling Stones Record Player is a wonderful piece of memorabilia, successfully combining great looks, superior sound and support for one of the world’s most important rock ‘n’ roll bands, encouraging you to veer back towards vinyl with a cry of Hey! You! Get off iCloud. The Editor apologies for the low-quality of that joke.
The Pro-Ject Rolling Stones Record Player is available across the UK now, available in high-gloss Black or White finish and priced at £329.00.
