LOVE Turntable - The Intelligent Record Player.

  

The LOVE turntable reads vinyl records with a traditional stylus, connects to Bluetooth & Wi-Fi, and can be controlled by its app.

Getting started is easy, simply place LOVE on top of its record base and it'll do the rest.

LOVE is the first high-end, smartphone controlled record player that you can use with or without its app.

  
 
LOVE gets you set up! Your next record is ready to play, the previous ready to be stored.

LOVE turns counterclockwise on a still record. It can be controlled by a smartphone to play records, skip and repeat tracks, alter the volume, and even select different RPM speeds. It is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible.

 

LOVE maintains the intimacy of vinyl and the organic, natural melodies specific to analog sound that we all love.


  

Redefining and simplifying the way music lovers interact with vinyl records.

Seamlessly integrate to nearly any audio device and easily play different vinyl sizes and speeds.
Seamlessly integrate to nearly any audio device and easily play different vinyl sizes and speeds.

An audiophile turntable that adds modern day conveniences.

Listen with ease. Place any size record on the LOVE turntable record base to scan the vinyl and determine speed. For example if you want to listen to track 3: You can start playing your record by either pressing LOVE's top shell three times or selecting the track through the app.

LOVE's smartphone app allows you to play, pause, skip tracks, repeat tracks, select rpm speeds, adjust the volume & display the album cover.

LOVE connects to speakers, headphones, receivers, multi-room systems and more wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and directly via 3.5mm cord or RCA Bluetooth adapter.

  

LOVE turntable is created by World-Renowned Product Designer, Yves Behar.

The man behind some of the world's most beautiful products, Yves Behar is perhaps the most accomplished and innovative industrial designer of our time.

 

You are likely familiar with Yves' previous work. His past clients and product designs include SodaStream, Herman Miller, and now, LOVE Turntable. 

  

High-quality sound, world-class craftsmanship, and modern functionality– by design.

Beautifully designed for the eyes and the ears.

We chose the best materials, making sure the soul of the vinyl would be kept intact when read by LOVE.

We then enlisted the best sound engineers to focus on producing a high performance turntable with perfectly silent movement without stripping away the core of what the vinyl industry is: lush analog sound, heritage and a unique musical experience.

 

We believe true organic sound is what makes a vinyl so unique, so we designed LOVE to transmit the perfectly natural melodies, keeping the sound of a traditional turntable. 

With LOVE, we chose the best materials on the market, coupled a traditional size cartridge and stylus to deliver a quality audio experience.

  • Wow and Flutter: 0.2% maximum  
  • Rumble: < -60dBa (DIN 45539)
  • Bandwidth (3dB): 20 Hz to 18 KHz  
  • Sample rate: 44 kHz, 16 bit stereo 
  • Channel Separation: 25dB at 1kHz

    

    

 

LOVE plays vinyl the traditional way, with a stylus, with the crackles and pops, with that rich, warm analog sound that bring each song to life.

LOVE plays vinyl records using the highest quality traditional stylus. With a standard cartridge spinning counterclockwise, LOVE has the ability to play any record no matter its size or shape.

LOVE mounts to the record base and gently rotates the needle around the record. 

LOVE uses a standard size cartridge and stylus that can be replaced if needed.

  

Listen to your favorite vinyl on almost any audio device including high-end Hi-Fi audio systems.

For high-end systems, LOVE comes with a plug & play audio receiver (High Quality Bluetooth aptX) that plugs into nearly any receiver. 

  

 

 

LOVE aims to simplify the turntable while maintaining the soul of vinyl, down to those crackles and pops we are all familiar with.

LOVE completely redefines the record player by keeping the record stationary while preserving the classic sound we've grown accustomed to. 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

We also chose Yves Behar, the world's best Industrial Designer to create a beautiful device from the best quality materials.

Finely crafted by Yves Behar who aimed at designing a timeless high-end turntable. 

The beauty and uniqueness lie in its movement: a form that feels in motion just by the shape, a form that reflects the beauty of its surrounding, a form that is elegantly curious with counter clockwise rotation on a still record, doing so in the utmost silence.

 

LOVE was designed and conceived to allow consumers to have a turntable that is light and easily transportable.

No need to buy a piece of furniture to put your turntable on, LOVE and its record base will fit perfectly on any flat surface in your home. You can listen to it in your kitchen and then take it to your bedroom, it’s that easy.

 

 

You can change the speed using either the app or by pressing the button under LOVE.

Love then analyzes each vinyl, automatically playing at its required speed of 33 ⅓ or 45 RPM.

  

 

LOVE is powered by a long lasting high-quality lithium battery & can be charged with a USB cable. 

The battery allows you to listen to over 15 complete sides of 12" LP records and takes roughly 1.5 hours to recharge.

   

   

LOVE puts no weight on the vinyl record’s tracks ensuring your record is safe.

The entire weight of the LOVE turntable is supported by its large rotating foot pad which sits securely on the label of the record. No part of the record’s grooves is ever touched by anything but the stylus. 

The device is specifically designed to provide the same engagement with the record grooves as any high quality audiophile record player.

  

Lastly, we chose the best robotics & audio engineers to add functionality to Yves' timeless design.

Quality and beauty do not go far without functionality. We created the LOVE turntable to redefine the listening experience, ushering the turntable into a new era.

 

LOVE wirelessly connects to speakers, headphones, receivers, multi-room systems and more via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the included Bluetooth adapter.

LOVE is compatible with Sonos home sound systems and many more ecosystems over Wi-Fi. For example: the LOVE turntable is recognized as a source on the Sonos app or can be connected directly to a DLNA source.

  

 

The LOVE iOS or Android App allows you to select different speeds, play/stop, change the volume, select or skip tracks, repeat tracks, and more.

The app also comes with a wide range of features including a database connection to display the album details and cover art.

  

  

The two record bases have both an aesthetic and a very convenient use. This gives you the option to select the colors that best suit your interior.

The two record bases were included to fix a problem that many people encountered: not knowing where to put their next record while the other one was playing.

When you switch from one vinyl to the other, the record bases allow you to have the next record ready to play.

The Love Turntable is Patent Pending in the United States and in 150 other countries around the world. The U.S. Patent Office issued a Notice of Allowance within four months of our filing our first U.S. Non-Provisional Utility Patent Application covering the LOVE turntable. This is remarkable because U.S. Patent Applications are frequently pending for years before receiving a communication from the U.S. Patent Office. Finally, the Love Turntable, Inc Patent Applications broadly cover our unique design and cover numerous distinct embodiment's, including several future features.

Risks and challenges

As with any hardware project, there are always scheduled risks associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics.
LOVE uses mostly "off the shelf" quality parts, their availability may vary. LOVE combines existing technology, so we haven’t had to invent a new technology to make it a high quality product. We are working tirelessly to make sure that the final steps of product development make it a reliable and easy to use product.
