McIntosh Audio Brings the Perfect Mix of Convenience and Performance with their MTI100 Integrated Turntable
Will the turntable trend continue into the new decade? The turntable’s history is long and storied, reaching all the way back to the phonograph’s invention in the 1800s. Next came the hand-crank-powered gramophone, which traced grooves onto a cylinder with a needle. When the cylinder was replaced by a flat disk, the turntable as we know it was born.
In the 1930s, wind-up players were being replaced by their electric-powered successors, and after the increasing popularity of bulky turntable systems with built-in amplification and speakers, came the rise of the dedicated hi-fi record player. Given its long history, there’s something about a turntable that feels like a time capsule, even now. Will you still see it in smart homes throughout the 2020s? We think so, especially with the modernized technology we see from audio giants like McIntosh.
