PLAY VINYL IN YOUR CAR

Vinyl fanatics now don't have to tear themselves away from their precious record collection to go on a road trip. Spanish carmaker Seat have re-introduced vinyl playing in their new model with the Highway Hi-Fi.

The ‘in-car phonograph’, originally popular from the mid-50s to the early 60s, replaces one of the rear seats. And they promise that it's jump and bump proof.

Seat spokesperson Mike Orford said: “With the resurgence of Brits buying vinyl we wanted to see whether it was possible to manufacture a gramophone in a car, without it jumping, missing a beat or the quality of the sound being distorted."

"And that’s exactly what we’ve done. But it was a real challenge because of the UK’s uneven road surfaces, pot holes and speed bumps. With this player you can drive over bumpiest of speed bumps and even around sharp corners without any needle jump,” he added.

Watch this space for the next Mixmag party on wheels.
