**Brian Eno Launches New Neon Vinyl Record Player “Turntable II”**
British musician and visual artist Brian Eno has recently announced the launch of a new neon vinyl record player, the “Turntable II.” This new record player is the second version of his original design, which was released in 2022.
Eno, known for his experiments with light as a medium, has integrated his fascination with light sources into the Turntable II. Speaking about his interest in light in 2018, Eno explained that the Turntable II is not just a functional music device, but also a piece of art. “When it doesn’t have to do anything special, like play a record, it’s just a sculpture. I like that idea of continuity,” he said.
The Turntable II is made of acrylic LED lights that change color slowly and randomly, creating what Eno calls “Colorscapes.” The colors range from orange-red, reminiscent of a sunset, to neon pink and green, creating an atmosphere similar to a nightclub.
The new neon vinyl record player comes with a price tag of US$25,000, and only 150 units will be sold worldwide. Eno’s fans and collectors who are interested in adding the Turntable II to their collection may want to act quickly to secure one of the limited units.
