Line Phono’s Turntable Station: DIY Patina
23rd May 2017
Weighing around 23kg and constructed of MDF, all corners of the Turntable Station feature a rounded finish while all surfaces are smooth to the touch. There is no lamination or veneer, “We purposely chose this material as an alternative to the cheap laminated furniture that currently dominates the market. Our material offers a neutral matte look that is capable of developing its own patina. The material has many unique characteristics including speckling and subtle colour variations,” said the company
The turntable shelf fits most turntable models from larger models like the Technics 1200 to mid-sized models like the Pro-Ject Debut series to entry level turntables like the Audio-Technica ATLP60.
Below, there is room for a pre-amp, compact amplifiers and vinyl accessories. The middle shelf can also accommodate larger amplifiers.
Each record shelf holds up to 100 records and grooves in locations allow you to showcase your album covers while built-in stoppers prevents your records from getting pushed back too far into the shelf.
Paired left-right ports to keep power and audio cables separate and neat. You can route cables from shelf to shelf using the ports. There’s also a side access to hide cords in the back of the accessory shelf. Plus a hook for headphones or extra cables.
Assembly – yes, there is some required – will take roughly 15-20 minutes. You will need to push in some pegs and screw in the feet.
The company plan to design storage-only units that will compliment the Turntable Station.
Available for $399 in Carbon, Natural, and Baltic Birch (which costs extra at $499).
The downside? It looks like the company will only ship to the USA and Canada for now. Worth asking them, though.
