With their KALLAX line already many people's record shelves of choice, IKEA are actually getting into the turntable market. Before your eyes roll entirely out of your head, know that the line of products are co-productions with fellow Swedish company Teenage Engineering who make the coveted OP-1 synthesizer/sampler/sequencer and other cool audio gadgets. The line, which is called FREKVENS ("Frequency"), includes, as reported by Konbini, an “electronic choir, vinyl player, party lighting and everything else you need in order to throw a really good music party." Here's more:
We know that for younger people spontaneity is key. The idea of gathering some friends could become a reality in minutes. What is then needed at home? Or maybe you want to bring along the party somewhere else?
Together with Teenage Engineering we want to explore the possibilities of bringing the party with you and what else you need for a great party.
Hopefully you won't have to assemble the turntable yourself with an allen wrench. The picture above is a tease of the FREKVENS line which is coming soon. Stay tuned.
