Pro-Ject x Houseplant Turntable Will Have You on Musical Couch Lock
Seth Rogen’s bougie cannabis brand Houseplant offers everything you might expect from the hearty huffin’ and puffin’ comedian and talented ceramicist, from beautifully designed mid-century styled lighters and ashtrays – to more surprising homeware offerings imagined to complete the room, including planters, lamps and candleholders. It’s a whole mood…a mood now enhanced by Houseplant’s latest collaboration with turntable and analog audio brand Pro-Ject Audio Systems in the form of the Pro-Ject x Houseplant HP1 Phono BT Record Player.
The $550 Pro-Ject x Houseplant HP1 Phono Bluetooth Record Player is an exclusive at Houseplant.com, a retro-tinged design finished in a cream-and-blue color scheme and frosted-glass platter intended to be displayed and impart a certain je ne sais quoi for listening or other sessions.
The Proj-Ject brand manual, belt-drive turntable is outfitted with its own built-in phono pre-amplifier, wireless Bluetooth for streaming to compatible speakers, and traditional audio cable connectivity capabilities if you really want to kick it old school.
Houseplant’s special edition doesn’t skimp on playback features with the inclusion of an anti-skate one-piece aluminum tonearm, vibration absorbing feet, and a more than decent Ortofon OM 5E moving magnet cartridge.
Pair the turntable with Houseplant’s 3 vinyl records set featuring the curated playlist of the Houseplant founders, and you’ve got a complete mood setting set-up.
