C.H. Pinhas, a die-hard fan of vinyl records, have been looking forward to the return of records from a long time. While performing a consumer research on the same he was highly disappointed with the available options. Record players have been using a technology that is almost four decades old and the system happens to be a fully manual one that allows the user to listen in one particular manner. While decoding the design prerequisites for a vinyl record, he decided to create a stylus that has static vinyl.
And this while he was developing a completely new listening method, LOVE was born in form of a record player that can be played with a Smartphone. The team is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for funding the first production round that will include 7, 10, as well as 12 inches records that will be playing at respective speeds of 33 ⅓ and 45 RPMs. They will also be placing a sensor inside the base of unit works that will have a standard stylus cartridge for scanning the record size and locate various songs. The app in the smartphone will be perfectly capable of repeating and skipping tracks as well as modifying the volume as well as change speeds as per demand.
LOVE is compatible enough for Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth. The units that you will see in the campaign page are the ones with 33 ⅓ and 45 record size. The sound comes through speakers, receivers, as well as headphones. The page also states that LOVE is perfectly capable of synching with Sonos but yet to be compatible with Android OS 6, iPad2, iPhone 5, iOS6, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home. LOVE shows minimum flutter and wow rates of 0.2 percent which samples at 44 kilohertz and comes with 18 and 20 kiloHertz bandwidth capability. The channel separation amounts to 25 decibels for every 1 kiloHertz.
