The headset uses a Galaxy smartphone as the screen which means you need to own one of the 6 compatible models.

This turntable comes with built-in automatic operation and is able to handle 2 speeds. There is also a built-in phono amplifier as well as a replaceable stylus for smooth performance. To use this turntable, all you have to do in place the record on the aluminum plate, press play and listen to the music that defined a generation before the coming of Apple.

An Amazon Kindle
