13 Aug Vert. Vertical Vinyl Audio System gives you a new way to enjoy records
The Fuse Vert is a premium vertical vinyl audio system that is currently on Kickstarter. It takes the record player and flips it up into a beautiful mid-century modern style audio player. This is visually a head turner and will fit perfectly in your living room.
The Vert can be connected to your external speaker system, or be used with the built-in speakers. You can also check out this vacuum tube speaker that could pair well with the Vert. One of the impressive functions of this player is its capabilities to play 3 speeds on a manual belt-drive (78, 45, and 33 1/3 RPM).
If you are afraid of the record player falling over or damaging your precious records fret not. Vert comes with a perfectly balanced and counter-weighted tonearm that allows for the record to be played in a vertical position without wobbling from side to side. Each tonearm is dynamically adjusted to ensure the tracking force is applied at the correct weight (4g) without damaging your favorite records.
It ships with a ceramic cartridge equipped with a diamond needle, though an optional upgrade to the Audio Technica AT3600L cartridge is available.
