It’s on our wish list!

Let’s address one of the key factors right off the bat. This isn’t an impulse purchase when you’re browsing a second-hand shop. The price, in British Pounds, is £8,995.00. (The U.S. price is $12,995.00; see below.) But if you’ve got some extra scratch lying around, a big birthday coming up or a holiday wish list, you’ll want to continue reading about the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band vinyl jukebox.

The unit, from Sound Leisure, is officially endorsed by Apple Corps Ltd. and designed and built under exclusive licence.

From the announcement: “The jukebox cabinet features durable printed artwork from the iconic Sgt. Pepper’s album cover which is also referenced inside the cabinet, wrapping around the Vinyl Mechanism and standing atop it to create a visually enticing 3D effect. The custom speaker cloth features the famous drum skin design and the side glasses are screen printed with the Sgt. Pepper’s florets.

The machine holds 70 seven-inch records offering the user 140 selections from the A or B sides. As the company notes: “Sit back and watch as the psychedelic swirls spin to life alongside The Beatles in all their Sgt. Pepper’s uniformed splendour. The revolving title rack allows easy access to your favourite records. Track selections can be made directly from the jukebox button bank or via the infra-red remote control which also offers control of the volume, reject, shuffle mode and lighting controls.”

The jukebox also utilizes a Bluetooth receiver giving the user the ability to stream digital music from any compatible device. A great sound is provided from needle to ear via the five-way built-in speaker system and D4 amplifier which also features an auxiliary input, outputs and connections for additional speakers.

Sound Leisure indicates that the jukebox is custom-built to order. It weighs 120kg (equivalent to 265 lbs). Its £8,995.00 price tag includes Britain’s Value Added Tax but the company notes on its website that delivery is to a U.K. mainland residence. More details here.

Deer Park Distributors is selling it for Sound Leisure in the U.S. for $12,995.00. Note: the initial product run has sold-out and the company is currently taking orders for 1Q 2018. For more info and to order, click here.
