The purity of listening to vinyl is something every music lover should experience, but the commitment can be expensive, especially when it comes to a good turntable and related audio equipment. TONE Factory’s turntable was born out of a love for great design and great vinyl music. The rather affordable and quite beautiful turntable was created to put listening to vinyl within easy financial reach for those wanting to head down the path who are intimidated by equipment and related costs. It has a unique aluminum base that doubles as the foundation and the housing for the belt-drive motor, phono stage, and Bluetooth, making wires obsolete. This streamlined look garnered the recognition prize from the Austrian Design Prize 2019. The TONE Factory can also be connected to traditional audio components if needed, and it comes in three subdued colors. It’s already exceeded its Kickstarter goal, and it should start delivering in June of 2020.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
