About


The Fuse Vert is a premium vertical vinyl audio system  which can also play FM radio, stream  songs via Bluetooth, USB MP3's, Alarm Clock, Line in and Line out. We took the plain record player and flipped it up into a beautiful mid century modern style audio player. Visually a head turner and audibly a stunner.  


By taking cues from Mid Century Modern Design, the Fuse Vert took the plain record player and flipped it up. The Vert showcases your favorite vinyl records in pure form with the record spinning  vertically. A unique design while still maintaining a premium high-quality sound.


A smooth grained hardwood that has a durable aesthetically beautiful finish. The Ashtree wood veneer is gracefully wrapped around a MDF box. Ashtree complements mid-century modern style to its finest.

With no extra set-up needed to play, it's simple enough for everyone to enjoy. This means first-time vinyl listeners are able to use it as easily and efficiently as record enthusiasts!

You can connect the Vert to your external speaker system, or use the built-in speakers on its own as a standalone audio player.

The Vert has the following playback options

  • Vinyl Records - 3 speeds
  • Bluetooth to stream from your smartphone
  • FM Radio
  • USB memory stick for MP3s
  • Aux In - 3.5mm line in


A ceramic cartridge with diamond needle, fine tuned for an amazing playback on the Vert.  It's Dual Channel (Stereo), frequency range of 80-10000Hz with Channel balance of <3dB. The ceramic cartridge provides a rich mid end and beautiful upper range sound.

OPTIONAL Upgrade - The Audio Technica AT3600L cartridge is one of the world's best selling needle cartridges. The needle is a Conical Styli with a Bonded Round Shank. Stereo Dual Moving Magnet, frequency of 20 to 20,000Hz with Channel balance of 2dB. It provides a warm bass and balanced sound through the upper mid range. 


Perfectly balanced and counter weighted tone arm allows for the record to be played in a vertical position without wobbling from side to side. Each tone arm is dynamically adjusted to ensure the tracking force is applied at the correct weight (4g) without damaging your favorite records. This sets a steady sound even when the vinyl has a wobble preventing anti-skating.

Risks and challenges

The Fuse Vert is a fully ready to produce Audio System. All parts, manufacturing procedures and logistics have been finalized and ready to go all according to schedule.

We are ready to begin manufacturing and we are ready to go. Our founder and CEO has been in manufacturing for over 15 years, making products that are being sold in the largest retailers in the world.

Although we are doing everything to make sure our campaign runs smooth, there are things that can go wrong that are beyond our control. However, we stand by our product and our ability to produce and deliver to you backers a quality product. We promise to keep all our backers fully updated with full transparency.

Thank you,
Team Fuse
