Designed for those who value flexibility in their music system, the MusicCast VINYL 500 Turntable offers a range of listening options. In addition to functioning as a wireless turntable, a built-in phono preamp and line output mean the MusicCast Vinyl 500 can be connected to an existing hi-fi setup—enhancing the system with seamless access to major music streaming platforms like Spotify, TIDAL and Deezer, or adding Bluetooth convenience into the mix. For Apple fans, the inclusion of AirPlay 2 means your hi-fi setup can join in on the action when streaming your music to devices throughout the home. Alternatively, a direct phono output on the unit can be used for connecting to an external phono preamp for those looking for the highest sound quality.
