somehow rocket and wink have managed to combine two niche industries to create for something music lovers never even thought they needed – a portable vinyl player. the ‘rawman 3000’ produces a rich sound that can be compared to elaborate and sophisticated component stereo record player system, yet is so small that listeners can take it anywhere they go. it comes with a stereo headphones, USB port, smart card, an antenna for bluetooth connectivity and nifty carrying strap. rocket and wink have made three sizes – seven inch, ten inch and twelve inch versions.

  • “something music lovers never even thought they needed”….because they don’t. This is impractical and I can’t think of a situation when I would ever need it…Unless I was a hipster with too much money
