Vinyl is having a major resurgence. Its 2021 sales total hit 41.7 million – more than half of all physical album sales. It surpassed CDs as to become most-popular physical format.
“We discovered a massive number of Sonos system owners were also active vinyl listeners,” said Scott Hagen, CEO of Victrola. “Even more importantly, consumers told us they would listen to music even more if they could play their favorite records through their Sonos system, using their Sonos app.”
The result is Victrola Stream Carbon. The turntable includes a low-resonance veneer plinth with premium metal turntable components, and a carbon fiber tonearm with a custom-designed removable headshell. It ships with a premium Ortofon Red 2M moving magnetic cartridge designed to deliver optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy.
The device can be controlled from the Sonos app or the illuminated control knob. It includes RCA output for use with non-Sonos speakers.
Victrola Stream Carbon is available for pre-order now in the United States, with additional markets to follow. The cost is $799.99. Shipping is scheduled to begin around October 25.
Additional products in the Stream turntable line will be announced by early 2023.
