It’s always exciting to see unique turntables pop up as there’s always something for everyone. Whether a vinyl aficionado for many years or somewhat of a newbie audiophile, there are bound to be unique pieces that call out to each of us, whatever the preference.
For those who are all about the reduce-reuse-recycle life, this eco-friendly Stir It Up Lux Bluetooth Turntable from House of Marley could be the perfect little addition to your collection.
Made entirely out of mindful and sustainable materials, the turntable uses materials such as bamboo, reclaimed textiles, upcycled silicone scraps, FSC®-certified wood, recycled metals, organic cork, recycled plastics and more. The bamboo and glass used on the device are said to have a denser and heavier feel which means that it would absorb the motor, bearing noise and vibrations which then can provide a cleaner and sharper audio experience.
The turntable also includes an Audio Technica 95E elliptical stylus and lightweight aluminium headshell which will allow for a seamless flow of the tonearm against the contours of the records. This means that the records will move with less distortion and there will be less wear and tear.

Included in the device is a dial that allows for two speeds of 33 and 45 RPM with built-in Bluetooth v5.3 capability for wireless pairing and a 3.5-mm headphone input.
Another unique addition is their first Zoetrope double-sided slipmat. One side features all-black cork and the other a vibrant trippy illusion of all things Bob Marley when it spins.

Small suggestion: it would go really nicely with this bespoke sideboard credenza that was making waves across social media last week.

House of Marley company also includes other sustainable items such as headphones, speakers and other accessories. As the company focuses on sustainability, all purchased items will give back to the Project Marley Global Giving initiative that supports organizations such as One Tree Planted and the Surfrider Foundation.
