World’s Smallest Portable Record Player

Shelby Chau / December 14, 2016

Music has evolved and so has the technology used to enjoy it. We’ve seen record players, boom boxes, Walk-mans, CD players, MP3 players, and more, but there are still people who love the vintage vinyl. The retro record might be a hipster thing, or a nostalgic thing, but believe it or not, records are still being sold today, and still sought after by music lovers.


To cater to old and new vinyl lovers, the San Francisco based concept company, Pink Donut, created the RokBlok. Weighing in at 3.2 oz, this portable and wireless device is the world’s smallest record player.


It’s a small device that has a range of 30 feet, and only requires that the record, (yes, any record) be placed on a flat surface. So, you can bring your RokBlok anywhere!


You can use the RokBlok on its own to listen to music, but for more sound and even better quality, you can connect it to any Bluetooth speaker or headphones.



It looks really easy to use. As you can see in the demo video, you just need to place the RokBlok on any record, and pull up on the lever to start. This makes the player lightly ride on top, without damaging the vinyl.


To stop it from playing, you simply wave your hand above moving RokBlok. That’s it! It’s like a Jedi mind trick.


Each portable record player has a pre-amp, speakers, bluetooth connectivity, and a rechargeable battery built in. The battery is said to give you 4 hours of playback, and each charge takes 2 hours.
