Victrola Announces New High-End Turntable

Victrola, an audio manufacturer, has unveiled a new high-end turntable, which can work well with some of the world’s top wireless speakers.

Called the Victrola Stream Sapphire, it retails for U$1,499 (Australian pricing and availability still to come), and is packed with premium components.

These include an Ortofon Blue 2M cartridge, along with a brushless motor, and a carbon fibre tonearm. It’s has a walnut veneer and can support 24bit / 48kHz lossless FLAC audio.

There’s support for the ‘Works With Sonos’ program, as well as Roon. The device also supports the Universal Plug and Play protocol (UPnP), meaning it will work with various speakers, smart TVs, PCs, and more.

It’s almost double the cost of the previous flagship by the company, the Victrola Stream Carbon model, which costs £899/$799.

CEO of Victrola, Scott Hagen said, “The Victrola Stream turntable line was created out of a need to provide a seamless, integrated wireless solution to enjoy vinyl no matter where the listener is in their home.”

“After hearing from both consumers and the integrator community, we recognised an opportunity to build on that promise by opening our ecosystem to include other popular streaming options while also elevating the turntable itself to a level we’ve never introduced in the market before. Victrola Stream Sapphire is a perfectly crafted audiophile-level wireless vinyl solution that meets vinyl purists’ standards while giving integrators the most versatile turntable for any project.”

Additionally, the company announced an entry level Victrola Automatic Bluetooth turntable.
