Jony Ive has made a record player with the Scottish audio brand, Linn. It has rounded corners and a lot of more metal. They’re only making 250 of them, and it will only set you back $60,000.00.
I actually like seeing Jony Ive doing these bespoke projects. I feel like it is the kind of work he wants to be doing at this point in his life. I wonder if anyone will use these record players as record players or if they will become investment/museum pieces. I’d like to see Jony take on everyday products and make them more useful/beautiful like Braun products are.
Regardless, we now have the answer to the question, “What if someone made a record player with zero compromises?”
