The debate over whether analogue or digital formats offer the best listening experience continues with the launch of the Globe-Trotter X Analogue Foundation’s Listening Station in London. The station will give listeners the opportunity to play a selection of vinyl on a specially-made turntable offering a high quality audio experience.
Combining listening to vinyl and enjoying a drink, the station will be on display in Globe-Trotter’s flagship UK store at 35 Albermarle Street from Monday, February 19th.
The unique Listening Station will feature a customised turntable with high-quality Audio-Technica phono catridges with the AT-ART9 magnetic core moving coil and AT33Sa Shibatat stylus with a choice of hi-fidelity listening provided by Audio-Technica’s ATH-ADX5000, ATH-A2000Z, ATH-W1000Z or ATH-W5000 headphones. The station also offers drinks via the built-in cocktail drawer and a set of tumblers.
The project is part of The Analogue Foundation’s aim to unite musicians, DJs and producers to celebrate the essence of analogue and was established by Audio-Technica, Russell Elevado and Soundwalk Collective.
