Pyle’s new Bluetooth Vertical Turntable can play digital music, as well as vinyl

When you think of a turntable, the “table” part of the name likely informs a lot of what you’re imagining, namely a record sitting on a spinning horizontal platter. That isn’t the only way turntables can work, however, as Pyle USA’s new Bluetooth Vertical Turntable demonstrates.

The vertical nature of the turntable might be what initially catches your eye, but its not all that the brainy new record player offers in terms of looks. The turntable sits on top of a handmade wooden stand, adding a touch of retro style that belies the modern technology housed inside.

In addition to playing records, Bluetooth connectivity allows it to play any music you wish from your mobile device. That’s not the only modern connectivity here, as a USB port enables the turntable to be connected to a PC so you can rip your favorite songs or even entire albums to your computer to create a digital archive of your collection.

Even the turntable itself is relatively feature-packed. While most turntables only support operating at 33 or 45 RPM speeds, the Bluetooth Vertical Turntable also allows for playback of 78 RPM albums if you have older albums you want to play or back up to your PC. Instead of only 12-inch and 7-inch records, 10-inch albums are supported as well.

While most vinyl enthusiasts will want to use the RCA line-out in order to connect the Bluetooth Vertical Turntable to a home stereo system, it isn’t the only option. Stereo speakers are built into the base, allowing you to play albums or music from your phone or tablet without the need for an external amp and speakers.

The Pyle Bluetooth Vertical Turntable (model number PLTT21BT) is available now and sells for $120. For more information on the product or where to buy it, see the company’s website.

instant photos are hip again and pyle joins the trend with a new portable printer usa 1200

It's often said that the death of the printed image came with the rise of digital photography. Surprisingly, photo prints are making a comeback, with instant photos finding a new millennial audience -- what's old is new again, as they say. Now, Pyle is jumping into the category with its new Portable Instant Photo Printer.

The Portable Instant Photo Printer has an extremely small footprint in comparison to similar photo printers -- at only 6.2-inches tall and 3.2-inches wide, the Portable Instant Photo Printer is roughly the size of an iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 and weighs just shy of 10 ounces. It definitely promises to be something you can throw in a bag and carry around wherever you go. The printer is wireless and uses an app -- available for both iOS and Android -- to send JPEG and PNG files directly to the printer. You can also use the app to make edits including crops and filters, as well as templates for everything from business cards to collages.

Pyle’s 1,000-Watt Street Blaster X is a Bluetooth speaker on steroids
Pyle Street Blaster X

When Bluetooth speakers were first introduced, most of them were on the small side, meant to be portable companions that ensured you could hear your music anywhere, even if it was a little on the tiny side. As time went on, Bluetooth speakers started to get larger and larger and that trend continues to be on the upswing. Case in point: Pyle USA’s new 1000-watt monster, the Street Blaster X.

Where Pyle’s Street Blaster X differs from the competition is that its focus is on being somewhere between a portable speaker and a karaoke machine. Standard Bluetooth speaker functionality like Near Field Communication (NFC) and compatibility with iOS and Android devices is here, as is a 3.5mm input for wired connectivity and even a built-in FM tuner. Support for streaming services like Spotify and Pandora is included as well.
