Not the best description of the miracle that is vinyl reproduction, but an interesting looking turntable, nonetheless. Sound? Anybody heard one?

From Yanko Design

“Take a peek at this record player. It’s the kind that plays vinyl records, the 12″ kind, and it does it well with only the bare minimum. Fantastical! It’s called “Turnstyle” and it’s made up of the motor, the needle, the speakers, and the controls. What more do you need? It’s a skeleton of its former self, and not former as in it was stripped, former as in there’s no reason to ever go back to more!

This project is designed by R.D.Silva, a designer who has the guts to take away everything but the guts. The requirements for function set upon this project were the following: spin record, on/off, volume, speaker, and needle. As far as design requirements: no corners, no hard edges, no 90 degree angles. Simple?

Designer: R.D. Silva”

Won’t the lp flex? Am I missing something?

Welcome, Ric.

Not necessarily. Besides, with the attached speaker made of plastic and the size of a matchbox, I’m not sure it really matters! :)

Cheers, a
