House of Marley Debuts Brand-First, Sustainably Designed Turntable ‘Stir It Up’ On Earth Day
Launch of innovative record player brings House of Marley into the turntable category with an eco-conscious, design-driven music accessory, including 12” Legend vinyl from Bob Marley and The Wailers.
NEW YORK, NY [April 11, 2017] – Breaking into the turntable market with style and superior sound, House of Marley announces the anticipated launch of Stir It Up, the market’s most sustainably-crafted record player on Saturday, April 22, 2017, in honor of both Earth Day and Record Store Day. Designed to recall the golden era of vinyl, during which House of Marley’s namesake Bob Marley was king, Stir It Up elevates retro sentiment to a new level of functionality and sustainable design.
Crafted with a solid bamboo plinth, the turntable pairs earth-friendly materials with high-quality audio. The Stir it Up’s built-in pre-amp and included 3.5mm stereo auxiliary cable allows direct connection to various speakers from the House of Marley collection or any existing in-home audio system.
“We’re introducing a new product category to our collection, allowing us to showcase a wide array of brilliantly designed, eco-conscious capabilities,” explains Director of Product Development Josh Poulsen. “There is no replacement for the feel vinyl delivers, and we wanted to give our customers the perfection of that experience.”
In addition to the natural bamboo, Stir it Up incorporates House of Marley’s own REGRIND™ recycled silicone rubber and the company’s REWIND™ fabric, made of up-cycled hemp and plastic bottles, on the exterior casing. The turntable features a solid metal tonearm for precise sound delivery and a replaceable, ½” mount, audiotechnica® cartridge, making the record player easy to maintain and customize. The USB to PC recording capability lets users transform their favorite LPs into MP3s, while the front headphone jack allows for solo vinyl listening.
“The beauty of the Stir it Up lies in its ecological balance. We’re bringing high-quality, earth-friendly materials together with innovative design. The result is powerful sound and a stylish look for the new turntable,” states Rohan Marley, Director and Brand Ambassador for House of Marley. “We are amplifying our father’s true sound to the masses.”
