‘toc’ was created by industrial designer roy harpaz, with two main aspects in mind: easy use with a clean and simple design. it works with a linear tracking system to capture the good old analog sound and of course allows for easy operation via remote control – but also via LED touch buttons on the front panel. users can easily skip between tracks, thanks to a sensor that scans the tracks on each vinyl inserted.

built with special spherical bearings, even warped records (vinyl records that have been bent over time from heat), can now be played without any problem. besides enjoying the sound of the record playing, it becomes an interesting conversation piece and unique accessory to any home. its front panel is made from CNC-cut walnut wood and is a great addition to any room in the home. even when a record isn’t playing, the ‘to’ vertical record player can stand alone as a interesting piece of creative design.
