Audio-Technica Sound Burger Returns in Spring/ Summer 2023

Flipped out because you missed the limited edition Sound Burger? You'll relish the news that it is coming back soon!

Audio-Technica released a limited-edition Sound Burger portable turntable last year as part of its 60th-anniversary celebrations – four decades after its original debut. However, it appears that the company underestimated how many fans of retro kit would want one as that limited-edition AT-SB2022 red Sound Burger sold out in a matter of days worldwide.

The result is that Audio-Technica has announced that the New Sound Burger will return in the spring of 2023.

Gary Boss, Director of Marketing, Audio-Technica US told StereoNET:

The response to the 60th-anniversary limited-edition model of the Sound Burger portable turntable was nothing less than extraordinary. We heard loud and clear the frustration of those who hoped to buy one of these turntables but were unable to do so. While the new model coming in the spring will not feature the 60th anniversary numbered badge, colour and packaging of the limited-edition version, it will be more widely accessible.

The New Sound Burger features a compact, lightweight design and easily connects to Bluetooth headphones or speakers for up to 12 hours of wireless record listening.

The belt-drive system plays 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records and to achieve both portability and stability, the tonearm employs a dynamic balance system in which stylus pressure is applied via a spring. Additionally, a “high-precision DC motor” maintains stable rotation.

Accessories include a 45 RPM adapter, RCA audio cable (3.5 mm male to dual RCA male), and USB cable for charging (USB Type-A / USB Type-C™). The stylus on the Sound Burger can be replaced with the ATN3600L (sold separately).

The Audio-Technica New Sound Burger will also cost $199 USD.

The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality.
