History of Turntables on a Poster

Noch ein Poster, auch toll: A Visual Hi-Fi History of Turntables. (via Ronny)

Designed as a visual celebration of hi-fi’s most enduring creation, from Berliner’s first gramophone, through the explosion of designs of the 1950s and the sleek UFO styling of the 1970s, to today’s high-performance superstars.

Whether you’re a hi-fi aficionado or just love cool design, this poster would be a great talking point in any room. It features classics such as the Technics SL-1200 (the DJ’s turntable of choice), Acoustic Research XA (the granddaddy of all high-end players), Linn Sondek LP12 (all-time classic), Garrard 301 and Thorens TD124 (1950s icons still revered today), and the Continuum Caliburn Cobra (considered by many to be the best turntable ever made).
