Victrola has become synonymous with budget, entry-level, all-in-one turntables. So, we were surprised to see the audio brand release a relatively high-end standalone record player. The Victrola Stream Carbon is built to seamlessly integrate specifically with a Sonos speaker system. Thanks to its Wi-Fi capabilities, the Stream Carbon will play your music directly over any Sonos speakers. And, for those who prefer a more traditional set-up, the built-in RCA output would allow you to connect to stereo speakers.
In an unusual move for the brand, Victrola has opted for some fairly impressive performance specs including a carbon fiber tonearm, aluminum headshell, and Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. And the illuminated control knob offers a tactile and functional way to control the volume straight from the turntable. For vinyl enthusiasts who already have a Sonos speaker system, this would be the ideal record player. The Victrola Stream Carbon Turntable is available for pre-order now for $800 and is expected to ship at the end of October 2022.
