sonypshx500-2

If the turntable releases at CES are any indication, vinyl records are back and more popular than ever. Technics had some impressive new releases at CES, but Sony’s new PS-HX500 due for release this spring is cool in its own right. Aimed at a completely different demographic, this table is built around Hi-Res Audio Direct Stream Digital (DSD) or .WAV conversion, which allows you to convert all your analog masterpieces to an easily portable or archivable digital format. Sony also designed a new integrated shell type straight tonearm for better focusing, dimensionality and overall improved sound. If you don’t have a turntable already, this is one worth checking out.

Digging for the scoop in a bag of coffee means you’re going to get grounds stuck under your fingernails. Not clamping that bag shut when you’re done means those grounds could also end up all over your shelf. The Coffee Scoop Bag Clip solves both those problems. The stainless steel Coffee Scoop Bag Clip has a 1 tablespoon measuring cup on the end of the clip for easy scooping and sealing.
