A Dansette-style stereo that gives old LPs ''shocking'' new life

Back in January,I featured an unusual £369 record turntable from Austria, the Pro-Ject Juke Box E. Its USP was that it had its own amplifiers stowed away below deck, so to speak, so while it spun up a vinyl storm, it also served as a modern variant on an old-school  music  centre. Connect up a couple of good speakers and, as well as playing LPs, you could bypass the turntable and stream anything you like to it. This, from the niche London-based radio maker Plus Audio (I have reviewed, and continue to love, its The+Radio DAB+), goes one step further. As well as amps, it has the most brilliant speakers built in, so the hefty but handsome cuboid machine is a self-contained stereo record player - like your old Dansette, just hundreds of times better. The+Record Player also does the streaming thing, but for me that is of secondary, even tertiary, interest. It's a proper chuffing record player - no extra wires, no complications.It sounds fantastic and I found myself more excited by it than anything I've had delivered here to  Technopolis Towers in months. I think the reason it sounds so good - or " shockingly good" as one famous audiophile said when he heard it at the New York Audio Show in November - is that our ears are just not used to such quality sound coming from harsh old recordings; the six amplifiers in The+Record Player provide a generous soundscape, even when playing mono records. Once you start playing your old LPs on it, you can't stop. I absolutely love this product that was designed in Milan by a Swede, and engineered in Boston, with a Czech turntable and a Danish cartridge. I think you just might too.

The problem with record players is that they mostly sound awful. The Plus is different. It’s beautifully designed and built. It’s a serious device that’s easy as pie and sounds terrific

+AUDIO has produced the first all-in-one unit I can recall in a half-century that employs all the ingredients of a portable record player but executed with high-end audio sound quality and virtues. On top of +AUDIO’s The+Record Player is a turntable from the estimable firm Pro-Ject that you can trust to play your precious LPs. But this isn’t stuck in the past: this stylish unit, also accepts digital sources via an optical input, USB and Bluetooth. And it looks so hip that it could cause riots in Shoreditch.
