At the 2023 CES Victrola expanded its turntable catalog, with the Stream Onyx able to pipe audio from records through Sonos speakers.
A continuation from the existing Stream turntable lineup, the second-iteration Stream Onyx is an upgrade from the Victrola Stream Carbon in build materials. Made from aluminum, plastic, and MDF, the turntable has premium metal turntable components inside a low-resonance plinth.
Accompanying the illuminated control knob is an aluminum tonearm with a custom-designed removable headshell, and an adjustable counterweight to allow for the correct downforce for dynamic frequency response and increased clarity. A premium cartridge is used for a high-fidelity sound.
The main attraction for this turntable is that it is a verified Works with Sonos product. Without requiring any extra equipment, the Stream Onyx can be connected to an existing in-home Sonos speaker network, either wirelessly over Wi-Fi or using the built-in Ethernet connection.
The Victrola Stream companion app for iOS, as well as Android, can quickly set up and connect the two-speed, belt-driven turntable to a Sonos system. Once connected, the Stream Onyx then fully integrates with the Sonos app, including enabling the control knob to provide a tactile volume control for the entire Sonos system and select playback groups.
While Sonos connectivity is nice, if you happen to have a traditional pair of stereo speakers on hand, it also includes RCA outputs.
