techUK CES 2019: UK-based Sound Leisure, the world’s only manufacturer of digital, CD and vinyl playing jukeboxes is attending the CES technology fair 8-12 January 2019 with its American partner Crosley to launch a brand-new addition to its classic jukebox rang.
Based in Yorkshire, North England, Sound Leisure has created its first Long Playing (LP) multi changing Jukebox, the ‘Anniversary - Long Player’ Jukebox, available in two models, the ‘East Coast’ and ‘West Coast’.
Having been an ambition of Sound Leisure’s founder and chairman Alan Black since 1968, the company will finally bring this vision to reality in Vegas at the world’s gathering place for those who thrive on consumer technologies.
Alan Black commented:
“I’ve dreamt about creating an LP playing Jukebox for 50 years, so to be able to finally see it happening is a dream come true. I’m really proud of the whole Sound Leisure team for this innovation, the Jukebox is truly magnificent, I can’t wait to see this out there!”
In 1948 Columbia Records unveiled the new 33⅓ rpm LP technology, pioneered by Hungarian engineer, Peter Carl Goldmark. A non-breakable, twelve-inch microgroove disc with the playing time of 23 minutes per side and improved sound quality, the innovation continues to remain a popular choice among music enthusiasts.
Sound Leisure’s LP Jukebox holds ten LPs, with an ability to play both sides of each record, allowing the user almost 10 hours of music without having to leave their chair. It features a four-channel amplifier which drives the five-way speaker to produce superb audio reproduction and has a Bluetooth receiver and has further aux. input and outputs.
Designed as a classic 50’s vintage style Jukebox, with characteristic bumper bars on the front grille, it is a show stopping piece more than 40 years in the making, set to wow vinyl fans, from the original enthusiasts to the new generations of music lovers.
Based in Leeds, Sound Leisure manufacturers and ships its bespoke products globally to some of the world’s most prestigious locations. The family-run firm is currently the only manufacturer of 7” vinyl playing jukeboxes and one of only two classic jukebox producers in the world.
Managing director at Sound Leisure, Chris Black who is in attendance at the show comments:
“We’re extremely excited to add the LP playing mechanism to our range, we now are the only company in the world able to offer a 7” and LP vinyl Jukebox. Alongside our CD and digital models, we now cater for every audio format.
“We strive for innovation, using the finest technology to bring much loved retro music to the forefront, we’re confident this will be a hit with music lovers across the globe.”
