Want to revisit your old vinyl collection without the hassle of phono preamps? Then there is this Alva ST record player from Cambridge Audio, with Bluetooth.
Perhaps the true vinyl enthusiasts will be horrified. Because no matter how you look at it, a conversion from analog to digital and back again takes place when listening with a set of Bluetooth speakers or ditto headphones. Even with aptX HD supported by the new Cambridge Audio Alva ST turntable, there will be loss of quality. On the other hand there is of course without doubt a legion of vinyl listeners who only listen to vinyl to hear their old records of the past again. And then, of course, a device like this comes in very handy. It is a belt driven unit and. An Audio Technica AT-VM95e cartridge (which can be replaced by something else if desired) is included. Finally, it is certainly not a cheap gadget, you pay $999 for it.
