Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

As mentioned above, the Sound Burger is a re-release. Having first launched in 2022 to celebrate Audio-Technica’s 60th anniversary, and 40 years after the original was released, it quickly sold out. Compact in size, it is designed with portability in mind, offers Bluetooth connectivity, USB charging, up to 12 hours of battery life, and comes in black, white, and yellow colourways.

The Sound Burger offers high-quality sound reproduction with a belt-drive system that plays 33-1/3 and 45
RPM records. To achieve both portability and stability, the tonearm employs a dynamic balance system in
which stylus pressure is applied via a spring. In addition, a high-precision DC motor maintains stable rotation.
The turntable also comes with an audio cable for those who prefer an analog, wired listening experience.
