A lot of turntablist/fans of the iPod/iPhone and iPad have long been clamoring for an affordable USB turndable that can play music on the fly without a bulky cable.
Now, we’re getting closer to that day.
The new $200,000 USB turnable from Sony is the first of its kind.
Like many, we thought this thing was just too big to actually fit in a phone case, and while we can’t help but love the look, we also felt it needed to have a USB jack.
But Sony seems to be on the right track with this device, and now we know why.
The USB turngable works like a standard USB jack, but instead of plugging it in with the included power adapter, you plug it into the USB port of your PC.
The PS3-size USB turk can hold two 2.5-inch USB drives, or one of the two 4GB USB drives you can buy on Amazon for $30 a pop.
But what if you don’t want to pay a bunch of extra cash for that USB jack?
Well, Sony’s latest USB turner has a built-in USB power adapter that plugs into the back of the turntablist’s computer.
The adapter, along with the turndab, also come with a USB-to-serial cable that lets you use the turk with USB-powered laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
The turndibes can also be plugged into the turks USB port for playback of music and audio files.
It’s easy to see why the USB turket has been a hit with the audiophile community.
The price is $199.99, or about $80 more than a USB cable.
You can get one of these cheap USB turks for just $39.99 and use the included USB power cable to play music and movies on the go.
And you can’t even beat that price when you consider the included battery life.
Sony has also made the PS3 turndabilist an official accessory, so if you’re a PS3 owner, the PS4 turndebox is a must-have.
