Additional features include an Audio-Technica AT95E 1/2" standard mount cartridge, with Elliptical Diamond stylus, a maple or walnut base, 2" full-range stereo speakers, and a volume knob. Outputs include 1/8" headphone and RCA jacks. If you want one, hurry over to their Kickstarter campaign before time runs out.
