The Briefcase Turntable

Hipsters everywhere: look over here.

US audio firm Pyle has created this fantastic portable turntable in a briefcase, to enable you to listen to your rare limited edition 45s when you're out and about, or relaxing at an independent coffee shop.

To be fair, this is a brilliant little gadget for all music lovers, utilising a rechargeable battery and including a pair of flip-out speakers as well as headphone outputs. It can be connected into a bigger system or into a computer via its phono and USB outputs, and the speakers can also be used by other devices wirelessly, such as your smartphone playing tunes via bluetooth.

The suitcase is hand-made from wood, and the device can also be used to convert your records into mp3s - though why do that when you can take this wherever you need?

It's available to buy for just $130 (£80) so it's very reasonably priced too. Take your vinyl out for a spin without delay.
