Sony’s Entry-Level Turntable Makes Wireless Audio Cheap and Easy
Turntable enthusiasts can now ditch at least part of the rat’s nest of cables snaking behind their systems. Sony’s PS-LX310BT turntable disburses audio directly to wireless speakers, soundbars or headphones via its own Bluetooth transmitter. It will automatically maneuver the tone arm in a single-step playback feature; it has a built-in phono pre-amp for use with amplifiers; and it has a USB output to digitize vinyl collections. The aluminum die-cast platter helps balance sound and a sturdy dust-cover protects the tone arm from bouncing around by the acoustic pressure from the speakers. Finally, for those who prefer their audio delivered via cables, the turntable comes with that option, as well.
The Sony PS-LX310BT turntable will arrive this spring, and although Sony hasn’t announced exact pricing, it’s expected to fall in the $200 to $250 range.
