Funded through a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign launched in 2016, RokBlok is a compact device that allows music fans to play vinyl records wirelessly through bluetooth-enabled speakers. It’s been getting heaps of press in recent weeks for quite good reason.
Made from medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and bamboo, it measures four inches long and weighs only 3.2 ounces. The little gem has a four-hour battery life and lasts two days on standby.
RokBlok is designed to not damage your precious wax. The design does this by carefully balancing and distributing the weight of the player across scratch-proof rubber wheels and not the needle. This makes it so the needle does not take the brunt of the weight out on your record’s grooves.
This start-up’s debut product isn’t looking to replace your trusted set of Technics 1200s. Instead, it’ll no doubt provideg hours of care-free listening pleasure for vinyl lovers anywhere they are.
RokBlok is an affordable US $99. It plays 33s and 45s and can be purchased directly from the manufacturer.
