General

The Akai BT-500 is a belt-drive record player that combines traditional quality with modern functionality, allowing you to optimally enjoy your vinyl collection. This Akai record player doesn't just boast a solid build, great audio quality and a USB interface, it also features a built-in Bluetooth module that allows you to wirelessly transmit your music to a Bluetooth speaker. You'll be able to enjoy your favourite songs without any hassle with cables!

Akai BT-500: durable and high-quality record player

The Akai's quiet drive system has a mechanically-isolated motor. This means that the vibrations the motor generates won't be transferred to the platter and tonearm, so they won't negatively affect your music. Furthermore, the heavy die-cast aluminium platter allows for a stable loop and a low signal-to-noise ratio. All of this is done to help the straight tonearm with adjustable counterweight pick your music up as smoothly as possible using the Audio-Technica cartridge with its elliptical stylus. The rubber slipmat that covers the platter, meanwhile, makes sure your records stay firmly in place.

Built-in phono preamp

Thanks to the built-in switchable phono preamp, the BT-500 can be used with a conventional stereo amplifier or even hooked up to a set of active studio monitors. Further modern additions to the record player include the Bluetooth module and a USB interface. You can now stream you records directly to a wireless speaker via Bluetooth, or easily digitise your vinyl collection using the UBS connector. For the latter, you can choose between 44.1 or 48kHz sampling rates, so that you can enjoy your favourite music in the car, in the train or on the job, without sacrificing quality! Finally, the Akai BT-500 record player also has a headphone connector, so you can enjoy your favourite music without bothering anyone - or, perhaps more importantly, without anyone bothering you!
