Described as a device similar to an aux-cable cassette adapter, the Universal Record is a Bluetooth audio receiver by Jesse England that, through its acoustic transducer, allows any audio to be played via turntable.

With this project, I ask: In the record listening experience, how important is the still environment and kinetic spectacle? With modern tangible media supplanted by cross-platform, network-based storage and playback, is contemporary record and turntable ownership a novelty, or an effort towards meditative stability?
