The Cambridge Audio Alva ST turntable will be on sale in time for Record Store Day’s June Drop. The new Alva ST (£849, $999) is a new belt-driven Bluetooth turntable that like Cambridge’s Alva TT (the world’s first aptX HD Bluetooth turntable, it says here) was designed and engineered in London. Fear not it has regular sockets for a wired connection to an amplifier if good sound quality is the goal.
