Audio-technica Brings Back Cult Classic ‘Sound Burger’ Turntable

Forty years after its original debut, Audio-technica's fan-favourite “Sound Burger' retro portable turntable will again be available, in limited numbers.

The Japanese company is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary with a flurry of product releases. The AT-SB2022 stays true to its original aesthetic but celebrates modern technology updates such as Bluetooth connectivity and USB charging.

The limited-edition Sound Burger is an affordable entry-level machine in terms of features and price. For those new to vinyl records, it is a doorway to a deeper knowledge of analog music. Thanks to its Bluetooth connection and compact, lightweight design, the AT-SB2022 would be the perfect partner for parties, picnics, or just because it's retro - and sure to be snapped up by collectors. Connect it to Bluetooth headphones or speakers and enjoy listening to vinyl records wirelessly for up to 12 hours.

The belt-drive system can play both 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records. For portability and stability, the tonearm employs a dynamic balance system in which stylus pressure is applied via a spring, while the drive comes from a high-precision DC motor to maintain stable rotation.

Kazuo Matsushita, President of Audio-Technica Corporation, told StereNET:

It is an honour to provide a quality audio experience to millions of people throughout the world. What begins as a simple vibration – a subtle movement – results in an emotional connection, whether that be when listening deeply to an album or sharing your voice with the world.

The Audio-technica Sound Burger is presented in beautifully designed Echizen washi paper, produced using a traditional Japanese technique. Commemorating the company's 60th anniversary, each product is engraved with a serial number, indicating the limited availability and individuality of each AT-SB2022.
