It's not hard to get your vinyl playing on the system. It's possible to plug a turntable into an amplification device. If you have a turntable, the Sonos Roam can beam audio from it to the rest of the system. The ideal solution would be to use a turntable that can transmit audio directly to the system. The newVictrola Stream Carbon turntable has that.
According to the press release, the Stream Carbon requires no additional equipment for connecting to a Sonos network, allowing easy setup and easy control with the Sonos app. After the initial setup is done through the company's mobile app, it will be possible to send music from a record to any speaker in your home. The control knob on the turntable can be turned on.
The Stream Carbon turntable has been certified. The new product being announced today is the result of a multi-year journey, according to the CEO of the company.
It sounds like it's a step up from the all-in-one turntable/speaker combo that Victrola is usually known for. The most expensive turntable that the company makes is called the Stream Carbon.
Carbon utilizes the highest quality materials that include a low-resonance veneer plinth with premium metal turntable components, and a carbon fiber tonearm with a custom-designed removable headshell. To further elevate the wireless vinyl listening experience, Victrola Stream Carbon will ship with a premium Ortofon Red 2M moving magnetic cartridge that will deliver optimized sound reproduction and a high level of sonic accuracy through listeners’ Sonos speaker systems.
The Stream Carbon is going to be available for pre-order from a number of retailers. The ship is expected to arrive in October.
