Legendary Musican/Producer Brian Eno Creating A Limited Edition Color-Changing Turntable !
We don’t want to argue semantics. But there’s no better way to enjoy your favorite album, song, or band than on vinyl played on whatever turntable that fits your budget. While all of the turntables we’ve previously covered check all the boxes for value and performance, none of them deliver quite like this limited edition color-changing turntable from the one and only Brian Eno.
Yes, we’re talking about the same celebrated musician, composer, producer, artist and multi-hyphenate with an oeuvre that would make anyone but DaVinci blush. His latest work is the acrylic turntable you see here with integrated LEDs that illuminate the entire base and platter in a range of colors that can be calibrated to change as the music plays. The limited-edition run includes just 50 turntables available through the Paul Stopler at an as-of-yet undisclosed price. But given the pedigree, associated acts, and build quality, we expect it costs a pretty penny.
