We first heard about Sony's forthcoming turntable in January, but now there's more information about the record player that can transform vinyl into high-resolution audio.
Said to be priced at £450 and expected in May, the PS-HX500 gives you the opportunity to turn wax into WAV up to 24bit/192kHz. Sony's Direct Stream Digital (DSD) is also supported, offering frequencies of 2.8MHz and 5.8MHz (double DSD).
Product manager Laura Bulander revealed the details at Sound & Vision 2016 in Bristol, outlining features such as the Hi-Res Audio Recorder, twin speeds and a unique cartridge by Audio-Technica MM OEM.
Bulander said: “It’s a bit more high-end than the models that we used to do and different because it’s a high-resolution audio turntable. We are able to rip analogue straight into a high resolution audio format."
Head to Sony's website for more specifications.
