The House of Marley Stir It Up Lux is the newest addition to the brand’s turntable lineup. And just like the others, this new model comes with a sleek design and sticks true to the roots of the company.
For those unaware, House of Marley products focus on maintaining Bob Marley’s “legacy for love” for music and the planet. Therefore, all the products are made of sustainable materials and aim to offer an enjoyable music-listening experience.
When it comes to build quality, the House of Marley Stir It Up Lux comes with an aluminum headshell, glass platter, and bamboo plinth. It has an elliptical stylus too. With such high-grade materials, the Bluetooth turntable excels in delivering improved sound quality, next-level tracking ability, and superior audio performance.
As you might’ve guessed, all the materials that House of Marley used for the Stir It Up Lux turntable are mindfully sourced. Here, one of the main highlights is the bamboo plinth.
In case you don’t know, bamboo can group up to a meter in height in just a day, making it an extremely renewable resource.
Glass and aluminum, on the other hand, are recyclable. And the cork utilized for the turntable is made from stripped-down bark. In comparison, some manufacturers source cork from trees.
In terms of design, the reversible anti-slip mat has a cork-natural aesthetic to it. And the special Zoetrope design adds a dash of color and vividness to the overall design.
So, in short, the House of Marley Stir It Up can definitely enhance the outlook of your setup. Nonetheless, the turntable has Bluetooth connectivity, letting you wirelessly stream music through it.
It’s Bluetooth v5.3, which can offer enhanced wireless range and stable connections. In addition, it comes with a built-in pre-amp and adjustable counterbalance.
These components aim to make record playback as accessible as possible. That said, Bluetooth is not the only connectivity option.
On the House of Marley Stir It Up Lux, you’ll also find the RCA phono/line out and 3.5mm aux out. And it supports 45 RPM and 33 RPM playback speeds, letting you play pretty much all the pieces of vinyl you may have in your collection.
There’re other high-end components on the House of Marley Stir It Up Lux. For example, the elliptical stylus is from Audio-Technica. It’s the AT-95E model, and it’s replaceable. There’s an adjustable counterweight too.
“Vinyl is the most genuine way to listen to your favorite music – there’s no skipping tracks, so you’re listening to the album exactly as the artist intended you to,” says the daughter of Bob Marley, Cedella Marley.
Cedella adds, “That’s everything for a musician. Immersing yourself deep in the roots of an album with House of Marley’s new Stir it Up Lux turntable is an unforgettable experience.”
