The History of Turntables

A limited-edition poster showcasing the best of turntable design – the cool, the quirky and the classic.

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).

Also featuring curiosities such as Simon Jansen’s steam-powered turntable, Simon Elvins’ paper turntable and some beautiful portables.
