[CES 2016] It seems that despite CES 2016 being the latest CES to date, several companies have apparently been revisiting the past. For example Kodak announced the new Super 8 video camera, and Technics launched a new set of turntables, and now it seems that Sony is getting in on the turntable game as well.
The company has recently announced their own turntable in the form of the PS-HX500. As you can see in the photos, this is one heck of a sleek-looking device and if you didn’t own any vinyl records before, this turntable will definitely get you in the mood. However apart from being just a very sexy-looking piece of equipment, there’s more to the PS-HX500 than meets the eye.
While it will play vinyl records, what it also does is it can take your existing vinyl records and convert them into digital copies. This means that if you want to backup your vinyl collection digitally, then this device will help you do it by transferring them onto your computer in native DSD or WAV files.
To top things off, the turntable will also sport an accompanying mobile app and desktop app that will allow users to edit their converted files. Unfortunately we have no idea how much the Sony PS-HX500 will cost, but it is expected to be released later this spring so maybe you should start saving up for it.
