+Audio Unveils +Record Player Special Edition White System

The ultimate dorm room hi-fi system? The +Audio +Record Player Special Edition White delivers quite the punch and wireless connectivity.

+Audio Record Player Special Edition White

Audiophiles are likely to turn their collective noses up at the mere mention of a product like the +Audio +Record Player Special Edition White system, but that would be a huge mistake.

Could one assemble a better sounding system consisting of separates for $1,995.95 USD?

Absolutely.

But with everything in one very compact and well designed component which includes a Pro-Ject turntable and Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge?

Not so fast.

Space matters to people.

Being able to listen to vinyl and stream from Spotify, TIDAL, and Qobuz also matters. Not having to spend additional money on cables is a huge plus.

Andover Audio is another company that has done a great job in this category and they can barely keep up with demand. We’ve have advanced previews of what is coming next from them and it’s clear that there is a market for high performance lifestyle systems like this.

With the resurgence in vinyl record listening and collecting, not only have quality turntables made a comeback, but the “record player” concept has returned with several companies, such as Victrola, elevating this product category for more serious music listeners. 

At its core, the +Record Player Special Edition White is an all-in-one music system with a turntable and cartridge, additional source connectivity, bi-directional bluetooth, and a two-channel stereo system. However, there is more to the story. 

Design

The +Record Player Special Edition White features retro styling that includes an uncluttered front panel and a brushed aluminum finish with a fabric speaker grill that gives it a fresh contemporary look.

    As a cultured Philistine of Hi Fi, I already own two Spinbase setups in our home, have given one to our daughter and her family and have a fourth Spinbase I am bringing to my older brother and his wonderful winsome wife (a minor touch of alliteration!) another spinbase and a bunch of Denon stuff this October.

    I received word of Andover’s newest setup and immediately wrote them with a tiny Word O’ Wisdom.

    Automatic.

    As for this setup by +Audio? Imitation is the SINcerest form of ripoff…Just ax Harley-Davidson. I am certain +Audio is a nice company but I have become quite enamored of Andover Audio and having exchanged more than a few emails with folk that work there, I have become if not friends, then at least no frenemies with them. I have a habit (no…Not the one that Nuns wear) of getting to know people that I purchase items from. Grace Digital is another such company that I have even been allowed out to visit!

    Perhaps I will one day look into +Audio’s stuff. For now I will remain satisfied with what I have. Andover Audio. Thank you for this look at +Audio’s stuff. It is nice looking.
