Bluebonnet Audio

The Bluebonnet Texan

This is a custom built modern unit utilizing a vintage Dual automatic turntable.  Many customers come to our shop asking for a one piece solution for playing vinyl.  Frustrated with the cheap and junky plastic "fauxnographs", those who want to play records without dedicating a large space no longer have to compromise, or destroy their vinyl in the process.  Placed in a corner, the Texan can fill a typical room with glorious stereo sound. 

Why choose Dual?  

Dual was ahead of its competitors in several ways.  They were one of the first to utilize a low mass tonearm.  In general, they are well designed, and very reliable turntables.  These were popular units, and many examples were sold over the years.  It is fully automatic, so you never need to touch the tonearm, unless you want to.  Most Dual turntables of this era play not only 33 and 45 rpm records, but will also play 78 rpm records.  

Upgrade Path

The example you see here is finished in oak.  Walnut and cherry finishes, as well as other custom options and upgrades.  Among other options and upgrades is the choice for Bluetooth integration to allow streaming from your phone.  Audio outputs can be added to use with a component sound system.  Or upgrade the internal amplifier to allow for the use of external speakers.  

Grab your favorite vinyl, stop by our shop and come hear the Texan.
