WIFI vintage Record-Player!
This model is a modernist record player in the French Art Deco style, built at the peak of the vinyl era. The Sonolor radio and Philips record player are collector's items in their own right! Sonolor began making the Cyclone in 1955 and only produced it for 2 years, so it's a very rare radio!
Upcycled into a custom 2-way connected speaker, this device is part of our High Fidelity range. It contains a 100W class D amplifier combined with a 11cm 80W woofer and a 20W tweeter (the original speaker had a power of 1W!). A digital filtering allows to obtain a very flat response curve, for a balanced high-fidelity sound. Particular attention has been paid to the bass: the bass is dynamic (its level is increased at low volume) and a switch activates the Superbass function to give more weight to the bass according to the taste of the listener and the type of music.

The device also features noise filters to suppress electronic noise from the WIFI card and electrical activity in the room.
On the rear panel, knobs allow you to adjust the tone to correct the quality losses of aged vinyls.
This device can be used as a "simple" record player with a very good sound: turn it on, start the rotation of the turntable, place the sapphire on your vinyl record and enjoy the music.
Flip the back switch and turn it into a WIFI and Bluetooth connected speaker. You'll be able to use your phone or tablet to play your playlists, your favorite music platform and any radio or web radio stations and their podcasts.

Moreover, in this mode, the signal of the turntable is digitized and transmitted to the WIFI module. Our system allows you to broadcast your vinyl records to other WIFI speakers in a synchronous way! This makes this antique one of the most advanced record players in the world (more information below: multiroom systems).
The device is also equipped with a Bluetooth connectivity to broadcast tracks stored on your phone (MP3 ...) or sound directly from the Internet (Youtube ...).

The turntable is a completely rebuilt Philips AG 2140, as well as the motor. The needle, the cartridge and the drive wheel are new. It can play 33, 45 and 78 rpm. The turntables of that time were designed to play mono and stereo records, so the swivel cartridge contains two adapted sapphire needles and allows the playback of modern recordings.
History of the radio
Sonolor is one of the legendary Art Deco brands, whose style stands out. Established in Paris, they took advantage of the post-war period and good designers to make a place for themselves in the small club of French radio manufacturers and became prominent at the turn of the 1960s. Attracting foreign investments, Sonolor was bought in 1972 by ITT (International Telephone and Telegraph corporation) which sold it to Nokia in 1987. The last Sonolor products were released in 1989.
