House of Marley Launches Stir it Up Lux Bluetooth Turntable

House of Marley has added a new model to its turntable line-up: the Stir it Up Lux Bluetooth Turntable boasts a sleek design and maintains the company’s focus of maintaining musician Bob Marley’s “legacy of love” for music and the planet. Thus, it’s made using sustainable materials, as are all House of Marley products.

The Stir it Up Lux is crafted with an elliptical stylus, aluminum headshell, bamboo plinth, and a glass platter for improved sound quality, performance, and next level tracking ability. With Bluetooth connectivity, it also features an anti-skate mechanism, adjustable counterbalance, and a built-in pre-amp.

The bamboo, aluminum, glass, and cork used to craft the turntable are all mindfully sourced materials: since bamboo can grow up to a meter in height in just a day, it is an extremely renewable resource, says House of Marley. Aluminum and glass, meanwhile, are both recyclable and cork is made from stripped-down bark versus cut-down trees. The anti-slip reversible mat has a cork natural aesthetic on one side, while the flipside has a special Zoetrope design that adds a pop of colour and an animation. Each purchase contributes to House of Marley’s global give back initiative, Project Marley, which supports global reforestation through One Tree Planted.

“Vinyl is the most genuine way to listen to your favourite music – there’s no skipping tracks, so you’re listening to the album exactly as the artist intended you to,” says Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob Marley and an accomplished singer and entrepreneur. “That’s everything for a musician. Immersing yourself deep in the roots of an album with House of Marley’s new Stir it Up Lux turntable is an unforgettable experience.”

Featuring Bluetooth v5.3 capability for wireless pairing, 45 and 33 RPM speeds, auto start/stop with belt drive, a built-in, switchable pre-amp, 3.5mm aux out and RCA (phono/line) out, replaceable Audio-Technica elliptical stylus (AT-95E) and adjustable counterweight, the House of Marley Stir it Up Lux is now available for US$400. It comes with the cork slipmat, main adapter with UK, AU, U.S., and EU plugs, RCA to Aux cable, stylus pressure gauge, and a quick start guide.
