Audio-Technica is celebrating its 60th birthday and, in addition to a number of expensive premium products ranging from cartridges to headphones, is also launching a new edition of the "Sound Burger," which was first introduced 40 years ago and has since become a design classic.
Modernized all around, the turntable can now be connected via Bluetooth and charged via USB-C. The battery is said to provide 12 hours of playtime, and the belt-driven, damped aluminum die-cast platter can be set to either 33 or 45 RPM. The tonearm has a spring-loaded stabilized contact pressure in the dynamically balanced tonearm so that the Sound Burger can also be used on the go.
As an alternative to Bluetooth use, the AT-SB2022 can also be connected to any hi-fi system via RCA cable thanks to its built-in phono amplifier. The included and pre-mounted AT VM3600 MM cartridge features a replaceable needle insert.
The new Audio Technica AT-SB2022 is available immediately in Germany, coming at a price of around €230.
