Vinyl records are pretty vintage by today’s standards for music storage media, but that doesn’t make them any less cool, especially when you have the Soundwagon Record Runner to play music from them.
If you didn’t know because you were not born early enough or don’t really care about the history of music, vinyl records or phonographs as they were called back in the days, were the preferred form of storing sounds for several decades and have existed in some form or the other for over a century.
The most modern iteration of the phonograph was introduced in 1948 and it has pretty much stayed the same since that time till this day, even though its popularity as a means of storing music has been supplanted by several other music storage media over the years like the cassette tape, compact disc, hard drives and eventually online/cloud storage.
Despite the improvements and invention of new ways for consuming music, the vinyl record has stuck around till today as a niche product for audiophiles who cherish the unique sound they produce. As long as there is music being released on vinyl, there are still a number of vinyl record players produced to listen to them on. The problem though is that many of them are relatively large and take up space. This leaves vinyl record lovers who are looking for portable alternatives out of luck.
However, with the Soundwagon Record Runner you have a portable vinyl player that can easily fit in your pocket and be carried around with no stress. It’s known as the smallest vinyl record player and is a replica of that old Volkswagen hippy van.
Using the Soundwagon is easy. Just place it on any 33 1/3 vinyl record on and listen to it play as it moves on the record. It is powered by 2 AAA batteries (not included in the box) and is good for up to ninety minutes of music playback from its portable speakers.
The Soundwagon Record Runner is available in several colors like cherry red, magenta and royal blue. This would be the perfect gift for that parent or grandparent who still has a box of old vinyl records from back in the days.
