+Audio Announces The + Record Player “Kickstarter Edition"

+Audio introduced its +Record Player at High End Munich 2017. Now the company has initiated a Kickstarter project to self-fund the +Record Player "Kickstarter Edition.

The Kickstarter campaign runs through October 15th. The +Record Player is an "all-in-one" Bluetooth enabled unit that includes a high quality Pro-Ject turntable fitted with an Ortofon 2m Red. Skeptics should know that the (very experienced) designer is well aware of potential feedback issues that can occur when you mount a turntable in the same chassis as the speakers. He claims to have dealt successfully with the issue. We'll find out when a production unit comes our way for a review. At the time we'll interview the designer.

According to +Audio Marketing Manager James DiPaolo, early Kickstarter backers get some "sweet deals", which you can check out on the +Audio Kickstarter page.

They still have spots for 8 backers at the $500 level, for which you get a +Record Player. The Q&A says the turntable section is a Project Carbon DC, which is a $400 turntable, so $500 for the whole thing seems like a good deal. I backed them, so fingers crossed that the unit is a nice as it looks.
