Vinyl has seen a renaissance. In reality, depending on which source you consult, vinyl record sales are on a level with or even surpassing CD sales. Flexible and fairly cost playback alternatives, on the other hand, are required for vinyl to continue to flourish. Victrola has responded with portable and home solutions with the aim of attracting more popular music fans, particularly those who have embraced the mobile music listening experience.
Victrola Revolution Go Record Player
The Revolution GO is a rechargeable, portable Bluetooth record player that won a CES Innovation Award in 2022. The Revolution Go is created for music fans who want to listen to their favorite songs cordlessly, due to the Revolution GO’s built-in rechargeable battery, which can last up to 12 hours. The quality Bluetooth speaker on the record player has stereo sound, a passive bass radiator, and an anti-vibration enclosure for deep bass and crystal clear music without the worry of the record skipping. Due to a folding handle and guitar strap for over-the-shoulder, hands-free travel, the Revolution GO is very portable.

Victrola Bluetooth Speakers
Victrola is extending its Bluetooth Speaker category for 2022, in addition to turntables and record player systems.
The ME1 Bluetooth speaker is ultra-portable for personal listening while on the road. The ME1 incorporates a two-inch driver with passive bass radiators that allow for crisp highs and deep lows. The ME1’s volume, power, and Bluetooth sync buttons are flush along the speaker’s side, keeping a smooth profile and eliminating snags from protruding controls.
A Rechargeable battery allows the ME1 to be charged via USB-C charging port. A full charge offers up to 12 hours of continuous play.
The ME2 is a more powerful Bluetooth speaker that is ideal for intimate groups or outdoor events. A 3.5-inch driver with a one-inch tweeter and two passive bass radiators is used in the speaker. A built-in Qi-charging pad on the top of the speaker allows users to charge their mobile devices wirelessly. ME2 contains an auxiliary-in input for external music playing devices, as well as USB-C charging for up to 20 hours of continuous listening.
ME1 and ME2 will be available in two color options at launch: conventional black and gorgeous brown, with more colors to come. ME1, ME2, and optional Leather case availability and price will be announced soon.
