Earlier this year it was announced that a Metallica branded turntable would be released, and now we have a closer look at what said turntable looks like! Per that initial story, Metallica teamed up with Pro-Ject Audio Systems to release a themed turntable that is made in the style of the band’s logo. The Pro-Ject Audio Systems website provides the following description regarding the themed turntable:
“Pro-Ject is thrilled to preview the new special-edition Metallica Artist Series Turntable, designed and handmade in Europe. The Metallica Team chose Pro-Ject as their collaborative partner to create a Metallica-themed record player, continuing the brand’s proud tradition of collaborating with artists. Pro-Ject’s design team treated the surface of the new turntable with a mirror-finished metal logo contour to give the player its distinctive look, a bold aesthetic that resonates with the iconic rock band. The S-shaped tonearm comes with a pre-installed Pick it S2 C integrated cartridge & headshell but allows for easy cartridge swapping via the detachable assembly. Tracking force, anti-skating and VTA are fully adjustable for fine-tuning and position the Metallica Limited Edition Turntable as a true audiophile investment.”
As of quite recently, over on the Metallica YouTube channel, a video has been uploaded that features an unboxing of this Metallica branded turntable. Little by little, the unboxing video shows off the pieces that come with this turntable; eventually, the demonstrator shows off how to assemble the table.
We cannot get over how fucking cool this turntable looks! It is incredibly epic and we would love to get one ourselves. If you have already ordered this item, it looks like you are in for an awesome time! What is the Metallica record you want to grace this turntable with first? You can purchase this item as of now via Metallica.com and Project-audio.com.
