Ever wanted the entire history of the record player — from “Berliner’s first gramophone, through the explosion of designs of the 1950s and the sleek UFO styling of the 1970s, to today’s high-performance superstars” — represented in one simple poster? Well gosh darn it, you’re in luck. The Visual Hi-Fi History of Turntables poster features landmark, one-off and classic tables of every stripe, everything from the DJ’s weapon of choice Technics SL-1200 to the Acoustic Research XA to Linn Sondek’s LP12 to the Continuum Caliburn Cobra — considered the best turntable ever made by many. Other more bizarre tables are also invited to the party, including a steam-powered turntable by Simon Jansen, a turntable made of paper by Simon Elvins and of course plenty of portable record players. The Visual Hi-Fi History of Turntables poster costs about $33 (£20.55) with shipping via Hi-fi Posters. Display your inner turntable geek proudly.
