Ikea’s Swedish House Mafia record player goes on sale next month


Ikea’s record player made in collaboration with Swedish House music supergroup Mafia is set to go on sale in October. The all-black device sports an unsurprisingly minimalist look and will set you back $159.99 once it hits Ikea’s maze stores.

The record player is part of Ikea’s overall Obegränsad (the Swedish word for “unlimited”) collection, which includes an equally modern armchair, desk, LED work lamp, record stand, laptop and shelves, among other items. Ikea first announced the record player in June, marking the furniture maker’s second attempt to create and sell a record player. The record player he was working on in 2018 never went on sale, but it looks like we have a much better chance of getting our hands on the device this time around.

Ikea hasn’t revealed too many technical details about the record player, other than that it’s powered by USB-C, is compatible with the Eneby Bluetooth speaker (albeit via a wired connection) and comes with a replaceable needle and cartridge. The retailer also doesn’t specify an exact date the player will go on sale, but we’ll update this article if we find out.
