Audio-Technica Reissues Anniversary Portable Sound Burger Turntable

 In honor of its 60th anniversary, Audio-Technica has decided to re-release one of its funniest yet recognizable products, the Sound Burger portable turntable (AT-SB2022). The original device came out in the early 1980s as a response to cassette players that allowed you to listen to music outside the home - but the vinyl format itself imposed restrictions. So, on the go, the Sound Burger, unlike the increasingly popular Walkman, could not work - it needed a flat surface. But the device, despite its controversial nature, has remained in the memory of the collective audiophile unconscious.

Modern Sound Burger visually practically does not differ from the original one - red, black and transparent plastic, silver buttons, large inscription with the model name. There is also a spring-loaded mechanism that regulates the pressure of the needle on the plate. The fact that the model was released in 2022 provides a USB-C port for recharging the built-in battery, which will last for a maximum of 12 hours of operation. Also, Bluetooth 5.2 was added to this version, plus a 3.5 mm headphone jack or active acoustics.

The device is ready to work with records at speeds of 33.3 and 45 revolutions - it has a belt drive and an aluminum alloy disc. The needle can later be replaced with an ATN3600L.

The Audio-Technica AT-SB2022 player will be released in a limited edition. The 2022 Sound Burger is available to buy starting today for $199/£200/€229.
