Aside from the great story and awesome cast of characters, you must admit that the Stranger Things series knows great music. Those who haven’t watched it yet should turn back now because there are some spoilers ahead. If you already did, this Metallica Limited Edition Turntable from Pro-Ject Audio Systems needs to be on your must-buy list for 2022.
Fans of the iconic heavy metal act might be wondering why there’s a sudden surge of interest surrounding its music. The latest Stranger Things season wrapped up with a bang. Joseph Quinn — as Eddie Munson – shredded Metallica’s Master of Puppets on the guitar like a badass. Hence, it’s only fitting for the Austrian company to pay homage with this special record player
That specific scene invigorated the metalhead in everyone and Pro-Ject Audio wants to cash in on the hype. The Metallica Limited Edition Turntable touts a crazy aesthetic inspired by the band’s star logo. The geometric plinth is constructed out of MDF with a mirror-finished top that defines the outline.
It measures 16.92” x 4.72” x 16.92” (W x H x D) and tips the scales at close to 10 lbs. To minimize vibrations that can affect playback, it comes with three aluminum, dampened, and height-adjustable feet. Your records then rest on a heavy glass platter with an aluminum sub-platter. This allows owners to show off the Metallica Limited Edition Turntable’s striking design.
You have an S-shaped aluminum tonearm in black that holds a Pro-Ject MM concord-style Pick it S2 C cartridge with an SME headshell. A toggle switch allows listers to pick the appropriate speed for their records: 33, 45, and 78 rpm. The Metallica Limited Edition Turntable is a perfect heavy metal showpiece to have at home.Check Price
