by editor ·
Leisure time should be accompanied by music. Perhaps you have already heard the retro feelings and high-fidelity sound quality of vinyl records, maybe you also fantasize that one day in the rustling of the vinyl record player and dear he/she dance with the music.
But maybe you haven’t used a vinyl record player, and its elegant sound quality is also a fascinating sound for you. So, how to find a phonograph that can balance the vinyl sound quality, the price is relatively cheap, exquisite and beautiful?Today, the “Consumer Electronics” evaluation room for you to evaluate a vinyl record player, I hope to give you some reference to want to buy a record player.
Simple industrial design and easy operation
The vinyl record player is called “HYM-DUO” and is a split vinyl Bluetooth speaker. Open the package and the bright orange color will come into view. The main body is divided into two parts, the player body and Bluetooth speaker, and some conventional accessories: the cover, charging cable (phono body and speaker), manual.
The assembly is so easy: put the speaker into the groove of the record player (if the the bluetooth speaker needs to be connected to the player to charge, you can align the speaker with the socket. In normal use, in order to avoid resonance between the speaker and the player, it is recommended to leave a gap between the two. Of course, you can also take the speaker out and listen to it and use USB charging separately. Plug in the power cord, press and hold 3s to turn on the Bluetooth speaker, and actively pair with the player. Then move the vocal arm to the vocal arm and remove it from the town. Put the vinyl record on the turntable, remove the stylus cover, and place the dish on the vinyl. Turn on the switch on the record player, adjust the number of revolutions, put down the vocal arm, and the soothing “A Woman Needs Love” slowly flows out, enjoy the music!
This record player uses the original audio-technica pickup, 9-inch arm, 80mm vinyl disc and 2.5g needle. The speaker is equipped with a CSR 8670 Bluetooth module with two 2-inch full-range drive units and a bass radiator. Therefore, it is worth looking forward to the handling of the bass in this player. DUO’s intelligent voice function is also a bright spot, supporting Baidu voice assistant – Xiaodu, to achieve an intelligent music experience. In addition, DUO can use dual stereo to achieve stereo surround sound of left and right stereo, but since there is only one speaker, so, the specific experience needs to be tested by yourself.
The bass is clear and the sound charm is strong
Since vinyl records do not have the process from analog to digital, and the process form the digital re-transforms to simulation various distortions, so it is widely praised because of its high fidelity. And, compared to the ordinary digital music player, everyone can call up the effect that they want almost, and the sound can be played infinitely.Although the current vinyl no longer has a previous sense of presence, due to the improvement of modern recording conditions and technology, more focus on the sound quality of music itself. DUO is a good transition choice for primary vinyl lovers. So, what about its sound quality?
“Consumer Electronics” evaluation room found: play the song “You Can’t Fight What You Feel“, use the phone to connect the speaker, its sound quality is dull, the bass is not clear enough; and after connecting the player, the sound is round, the bass processing is very clear, There is a sense of vibration, and there is a slight lack of feeling to vigorousness. This should be compressed and converted with the digital music of the mobile phone, and the vinyl record is physically read with retaining the original sound of the music, and the degree of reduction is more realistic. From this point of view, listening to music with a vinyl player can enjoy a more pure sound. In order to further test the effect of playing the accent, the speaker played a drum sound and found that the bass has a weight, a layered and rich stereo. Immediately after playing Mozart’s “Mozart: Piano Concerto No.20 02. Romanze (Nature Ver.)“, it is like being in nature, with clear details and sounds comfortable. Finally, play Beethoven’s “For Elise“, the bass processing is full and solid, and the whole sounds cheerful and smooth.
Unique listening experice for the slow life
In addition to the unique high-fidelity sound quality of the vinyl record player, it’s listening style also has itself own unique charm. Pick up the record with both hands, turn the switch, sway the vocal arm, place the pointer on the vinyl record, glimpse through the faint ripples, and play the melody of the fascination. The vinyl glue slows down the time. Close to some, feel the rustling of the stylus across the record, watch the passing of the water on the turntable, empty yourself and send it to the day. Let the stylus put on the ceremonial sense of vinyl, relieve the turmoil of life. And live a slow time that belongs to you.
