Audio Technica turned 60 last November. And to celebrate the 60th anniversary, the audio specialist released a limited-edition version of its portable turntable.
This made the Audio Technica Sound Burger appear on the market after 40 years of its initial release. When the limited-edition Sound Burger was initially announced, the brand did not expect such an amazing response.
And Audio Technica was even surprised to see the AT-SB2022 Retro Red Sound Burger get sold out within days.
The Chief Marketing Officer of Audio Technica, Gary Boss, said: “The response to the limited edition 60th anniversary of the Sound Burger portable turntable was absolutely amazing.”
Seeing this response, the brand assured that the limited edition of the Audio Technica Sound Burger would soon be back on sale in the upcoming Spring/Summer of 2023. So, if you did not get a chance to grab one on the first sale, you still have some hope.
However, the Audio Technica Sound Burger that will be available during that sale will not have the serial number, packaging, and colors that were available for the 60th-anniversary limited edition.
And, if you were lucky to grab one during the first sale, you still have a one-of-a-kind Sound Burger unit. Wondering what makes the Audio Technica Sound Burger so special?
At its core, it is an affordable entry-level turntable. When it comes to features, its main highlight is that it comes with a Bluetooth connection.
And as the overall size and shape of the turntable are pretty compact, you can easily carry it around to places.
Nonetheless, with Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect the turntable to any Bluetooth headphones or speakers. And thanks to its decently-sized built-in battery, you can get up to 12 hours of playtime with a single charge.
Besides, the Audio Technica Sound Burger can play both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records. To enhance stability and portability, Audio Technica has integrated a dynamic balance system on the device.
The pressure of the stylus is exerted by a spring for that. And let’s not forget to talk about its outlook. It truly looks like a one-of-a-kind turntable.
You will get a lot of attention when you take it to parties and social gatherings. And the vibrant color that the first sale offered made it look even more unique.
In other words, you will get basically all that you need to start jamming to the portable turntable.
