Wirelessly Enabled Record Players

The Victrola Stream Carbon Streams to Sonos Speakers

— September 23, 2022 — Tech
The record player is no longer an old-fashion audio solution of yesteryear given the revival of records in recent years, so brands are responding with new hardware like the Victrola Stream Carbon. The record player is engineered to be a streaming-first audio solution that doesn't require a connection to an amp to be used. The unit can instead stream directly to speakers from the likes of Sonos thanks to compatibility with 802.11ac connections.

The Victrola Stream Carbon has a singular knob for control, but is best controlled via the accompanying smartphone app for total control over playback. Priced at $799, the record player is available now for preorder and will on display at the Sonos booth at the 2022 CEDIA Expo in Dallas.
