Kind of wondering if it'll be a copper version of an Astrobaby or Telstar... while I'd be into it, I'm hoping for something totally new. Could also just be brushed aluminum if it's a literal take on grooves.
I'm hoping for either a white or black Astro or Astro baby. Or a totally different modern twist on a lava lamp. Failing that, I doubt it will tempt me.
I think ‘groovy’ may well allude to the finish of the new lamp, looking at the metal component being spun in the video, it does seem to have a sort of ribbed effect, also looks to be tubular, so possibly an entirely new form factor, or perhaps a ‘reboot’ of the Jet but in machined metal, which could be pretty neat.
I hope it's a lava lamp at least, not something else lol. Would be great if they've mastered an LED lava lamp on the lines of the smart Astros.
I doubt it is anything too fancy. My bet is it's a black brushed aluminum finish.
Thanks for the link, my Husband wants me to purchase one of these lamps, he loves vinyl.
Not sure if I want a black lamp but this is way nicer than the current matte black!
I love my current matt blacks, but my first thought is “dust….”, that’s a lot of grooves for it to get in to!
I will get one of course, I’m just not sure I can see it replacing my usual matt blacks
Slightly disappointed its not something completely new, but pretty cool nonetheless.
had been toying with the idea of a black Astro, but this one looks much more interesting - liking the ‘bespoke’ box design as well.
Wish they would have given us some new colour options for this 'edition' though.
I too was hoping for something new, or at least something to expand the astrobaby or telstar ranges.
Astro already has a few variations, I've been wanting an astrobaby but I don't want plain shiny silver.
It's a great idea though, very effectively designed, the base will catch the light as well, making it look even more like a record. Whoever thought of the idea had an inspired moment :)
