AKAI ATT023U USB Turntable

 

Introduction

 

Ever since the first big boom in colour television AKAI has been a presence in consumer electronics. And although a lot has changed since those days, we still seem to be spending a lot of time staring at screens as a major source of entertainment.

 

While vinyl records were also present in the early days, the format had a huge drop-off when CD appeared. With its inherent superior durability, longer play time, smaller size, etc., there were several improvements over the vinyl format as a whole, just not where it really counted, which was specifically how it sounded to our ears.

Largely, for this reason vinyl has had resurgence in recent years, such to the point where companies like AKAI can market a turntable in today's market with some confidence that it will sell.
