Ikea is good to go to join the vinyl restoration. The level pack furniture creator just sent off another stereo as a component of cooperation with electronic music stars Swedish House Mafia.
Disclosed at 2022 Milan Design Week, the turntable structures a piece of another assortment called OBEGRÄNSAD that likewise incorporates a work area for music creation in addition to an easy chair, with each of the three items sharing a smooth dark tasteful.
There’s little in the method of specialized subtleties so far accessible for the stereo, so it’s difficult to say in the event that it’ll challenge the best turntables our there, however from the promotion shots delivered such a long way off the striking moderate box plan, it looks distant from the unstable reasons for decks you will generally connect with a standard retailer.
While not referenced in Ikea’s official statement, extremely observant perusers might have seen Audio-Technica’s logo on the pointer, which reassuringly recommends this deck could be a competitor.
Furthermore, you won’t have to occupy your room with howdy fi isolates; the turntable likewise has a preamp inherent, with the decks controlled by a straightforward USB link.
While Ikea makes the purpose in saying the deck’s group up flawlessly with its own Eneby Bluetooth speakers, it doesn’t appear as though the decks really highlight remote availability, with the turntable appearing to associate through the speaker’s aux input.
As per Swedish House Mafia, the reach’s plan “upholds making, playing, getting a charge out of and, surprisingly, simply setting the mindset.” Commenting on the phonograph, Ikea originator Friso Wiersma says: “The strong, thick plan gives the player a presence in the room – it sends the genuineness of music in the assortment, making it truly guarantee space with the demeanor of music woven into it – as opposed to making it mix”.
While this might be the main Ikea-marked turntable to raise a ruckus around town since the 1970s, it’s not whenever the organization first has fiddled with delivering a bunch of 21st-century wheels of steel.
Another collab with super cool Swedish customer hardware brand Teenage Engineering was set to remember a record-playing gadget for 2019 yet it unfortunately never came around.
The OBEGRÄNSAD work area, in the interim, seems as though the spot could be a success with imaginative, nerd types and gamers. Essentially focused on home studio music makers, with its take-out rack considering space for a midi console, it likewise includes two ear-level screen speaker stands which could charm it to video editors.
No costs are right now accessible for the new OBEGRÄNSAD range, yet each of the three items is set to drop in stores this pre-winter.

While there’s no sign right now whether the OBEGRÄNSAD decks will be restricted release, record retailers will most likely be keeping all that crossed that they reach however many homes as Ikea’s revered Kallax racks.
The vinyl resurgence gives no indications of winding down, and a reasonable, passage-level stereo being presented by one of the world’s greatest retailers would be sure to attract more music sweethearts to the record-purchasing bug.
We’d very much want to have seen some remote network installed, and the capacity to match up with Ikea’s Sonos-accommodating SYMFONISK speakers, yet that is maybe asking a lot from a gadget that most likely won’t be excessively expensive in excess of a family supper of meatballs.
