We've put together an awesome sounding easy set up vinyl replay system using the Flexson VinylPlay turntable and the Q Acoustics BT3 Speakers.
Flexson VinylPlay Turntable (With A2D & Phonostage Built In)
VinylPlay gives music fans a best-of-both-worlds solution: an excellent record player that's easy to use and can be simply integrated into a modern streaming system. VinylPlay's integrated analogue-to-digital converter and phono amp makes it simple to connect up to a wide range of modern music systems.
For example, you can plug it straight into active/powered speakers to create an instant system. VinylPlay also works with conventional hi-fi and AV systems and if you want to enjoy your records in every room, you can easily connect it into a SONOS system. VinylPlay can be connected directly to the SONOS PLAY:5 speaker, or into a SONOS CONNECT, and onto any speaker on the network.
Unlike inferior 'USB' turntables that can damage precious records, VinylPlay uses high-quality components, which also means better-quality sound. VinylPlay is a true hi-fi product - precision made in the UK - but with none of the fiddle or fuss of 'audiophile' turntables.
VinylPlay is easy to use - a quick-start guide on the platter will have you set up in seconds; you're only minutes away from music when you open the box! Its sleek, monochrome design - which matches the black and white of SONOS speakers - is kept protected and clean by VinylPlay's clear, hinged lid.
- Play, archive and stream your records. Looks good, sounds great
- Set up in seconds; enjoy music in minutes
- Just add powered speakers for instant music system
- Pair with SONOS to stream records around your house
- Make back-up, digital copies of precious records
- Sleek monochrome styling with protective lid
- Plays singles and albums; 33 & 45rpm speeds
Q Acoustics BT3 Bluetooth Speakers
WHAT MAKES THE BT3 SPEAKERS SO SPECIAL?
Hidden within the Q-BT3 speakers is a high quality, 2 x 50 Watts per channel amplifier, a Bluetooth V4.0 wireless receiver (with advanced ‘aptX’ capability for improved sound quality), and a low distortion Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC), accessed via an optical input.
For movie lovers wishing to hear ultra-low frequency effects, there’s a separate subwoofer output to connect your subwoofer of choice. A second line level input allows you to connect a CD, DVD, Blu-ray player or any other ‘line level’ source.
"A brilliant audio solution for nearly every requirement"
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO USE MY Q–BT3 SPEAKERS?
The best way to experience the full capability of the new Q-BT3 is connect it to your television or set-top box and enjoy it as a high quality, wireless hi-fi mini system at the same time! To make life even easier, you can control the volume and switch between inputs on your Q-BT3 either with the small, elegant, infrared remote control included; or by the remote controls which come with many satellite and cable TV boxes, (including UK ‘Sky’ and ‘Virgin’ models).
WHERE CAN I PUT MY SPEAKERS?
The Q Acoustic BT3 speakers can be placed almost anywhere. They can be wall mounted with an appropriate bracket or placed on a speaker stand, furniture or bookshelf. Therefore whether you want to experience the full force of the latest blockbuster movie or listen to your favourite music, one thing guaranteed is that the stylish Q-BT3 Bluetooth speaker system will enhance your enjoyment.
CAN I USE MY IPHONE OR OTHER SMARTPHONE TO CONNECT WIRELESSLY TO MY Q-BT3 SPEAKERS?
For ultimate flexibility and convenience, we’ve incorporated state of the art V4.0 Bluetooth technology (with aptX for near CD quality sound) into the Q-BT3, which allows you to listen to music from any Bluetooth enabled Smartphone, Tablet or laptop. Then simply enjoy your music with the freedom and convenience that only a wireless connection can bring. This innovative product can be enjoyed in many different ways, from many different devices.
ARE THESE THE BEST BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS AROUND?
We’re completely confident the Q Acoustic Q-BT3 Bluetooth speakers set the standard at their price. The new Q-BT3 isn’t a jazzed up iPod dock or modified table radios in disguise. As stated above, the Q-BT3 looks and sounds like a pair of genuine, superior quality hi-fi loudspeakers, for the very obvious and simple reason; that’s precisely what they are.
NEVER MISS WHAT IS GOING ON
The amazing thing about these is that you will never miss an important phone call or message again. You can listen to your music, however when your phone or device goes off, it dims the sound and alerts you. Therefore you can always stay connected, whether it is a message from your friends or an important business phone call, you can be alerted.
ARE THESE THE BEST TV SPEAKERS AROUND?
Well, we’re too modest to say, but they’re certainly great value and will deliver an audio performance that comfortably outperforms typical soundbars and other dedicated TV speakers. Appearance wise Q-BT3 looks just like a pair of small, neat and stylish real hi-fi loudspeakers – because, under the skin, that’s just what they are (and a lot more!) Placed either side of your TV, the BT3 speakers can connect to your television or set-top box for you to experience fabulous TV sound quality. Q Acoustics BT3 is ideal for television and movie lovers alike and for those who want to ‘feel the earth move’, there’s a separate subwoofer output to connect your subwoofer of choice.
LESS CLUTTER, MORE SOUND
The Q Media BT3 has been specially designed to dramatically improve the sound from your TV. Volume levels can also be controlled via the remotes from many satellite and cable TV boxes, (including 'Sky' and 'Virgin' models). Therefore you can experience movies, music and sport like never before without searching for that ‘other remote’. In addition the BT3 has a built- in amplifier, therefore there is no need for a separate amp. This all adds up to less clutter in your lounge.
CAN THEY BE USED WITH MY LAPTOP OR COMPUTER?
Quite simply, yes! The BT3s make for great desktop speakers. They are small enough so that they will not clutter up your desk, and will deliver a performance that will ‘wow’ you. The BT3s take your listening experience to the next level. No longer will you have to complain about the poor sound quality, whether you are Skyping a friend, downloading music or watching something online.
WHY SHOULD I USE THESE SPEAKERS FOR MY LAPTOP OR COMPUTER?
The BT3s deliver a sound far beyond that you get out of your laptop or computer. With the built in amplifiers the BT3s work particularly well for musicians that enjoy recording their own music as it is like bringing the recording studio to your very own home. They are also great for gaming, helping you get more involved in the experience, almost like you’re actually in the game itself.
