Elvis Presley Turntable

Ricatech B.V. has released the first series of Elvis Presley Limited Edition Record Players, and handed over the very first copy to a Elvis fan in The Netherlands. We where at home of Elvis fan "Piet Spietman" living in Maarssen in The Netherlands. There was a press moment. Piet Spietman: "i have waited a long time for this moment, and now i finally got my Elvis turntable. As a Elvis fan this is a great and unique product to have; playing my Elvis records on a Elvis Presley turntable is fantastic! It also is a beautiful piece for my Elvis collection, and looking great in my living room."

This turntable in one of the 3 models that have been designed and produced by Ricatech. There are 3 models with each a special design of a certain period of Elvis Presley: the 50's period, the 68' Comeback Special and the 70's Las Vegas period. Ricatech is a worldwide license holder of Elvis Presley Enterprises, and is manufacturer of jukeboxes and record players. Last year, Ricatech released a high end, limited edition Elvis Presley jukebox. This jukebox, with a current retail sales value € 24.000,- was made 50pcs worldwide only. The Elvis Presley turntables are released in August, and are a big success already. All units of the first production run are sold out before arrival. Fans ordering now, need to wait till at least October to get their Elvis Presley turntable. It seems that some large online retailers like Amazon has hold stock and is able to supply.

They look fantastic! But my main concern with these portable turntables is that they'll ruin my records :(

I don't actually like the 'design' of these much. It just looks like their other players with a few Elvis pics glued inside the lid and a small, cheap looking plate on the front. And it's typical they have 3 different ones, hoping that some sad completists will 'have to' have all 3!!! The spirit of "Colonel" Parker lives on!!!

Just one thing I hope that we can change the needle to play 78 rpm.

For the speed it's ok as there is a switch for 33 45 and 78 rpm but the 78 rpm need a different needle.

I have just receive my exemplar.

I have chosen the '68 version.

It's nice but I will use it only to record the 78 rpm.

To what filetype does it record. mp3 or wav?

Only in mp3 128 kbits/s

But you can connect the table to the soundcard of the PC via a line out jack and then you can make wav. mp3 or what you want.

You can change the cell and the needle if you know how but there is no possibilities to adjust the weight of the needle.

So if the new cell is lighter than the cell of the table we have to put a weight in the beginning of the arm and if the new cell is heavier than the cell of the table we have to put a weight in the end of the arm.

Personnally I wouldn't use this table to listen to my LP. I have my big turn table for that but it's only playing 45 and 33 rpm.

I will only use it to record my 78 rpm.
