Hi, I’m Stephen, also known as DJ QuestionMark. I’m a professional DJ / scratch turntablist who’s collected vinyl records for over ten years.
I’ve self-released two albums on vinyl in the past two years. Most of my friends were supportive and bought my albums, but I realized many just used them as decoration in their homes.
When I asked why they weren’t actually listening to my vinyl releases, they said:
“Sorry man, I wanted to, but turntables and audiophile systems are too expensive.”
“Setting up a record player with cables, amplifiers and speakers seems too complicated. I don’t want to deal with all of that.”
My friends were interested in vinyl, but felt that record players were inconvenient, pricey, or difficult to set up. So I decided to create a more approachable way to experience vinyl - a turntable that’s fun, affordable and easy for everyone to use.
In 2015, I founded Spinbox with my talented friends. It took over a year of development, with over ten generations of prototypes and countless adjustments to the DIY designs, improvements in sound quality, and circuit boards.
In 2016, we launched our first crowdfunding campaign in Taiwan. We successfully manufactured and shipped over 4,000 Spinbox to Taiwanese backers in three months.
From this experience, we set our standards of manufacturing and quality control. We’ve improved the circuit board and several designs to make Spinbox even better for the global market.
- Packing box volume: 327mm x 270mm x 95mm
- Weight: 1200g apx.
- RPM: 33, 45, 78 RPM
- Line in/Line out signal level: Line
- Cartridge: ceramic
Since 2015, we’ve worked non-stop on prototyping, structure designing, DIY designing, circuit designing & testing, crowd funding, mass producing and shipping.
Thank you to everyone who’s supported us so far. We wouldn’t be here without your precious feedback and suggestions.
Shout out to everyone in the press who has spread the word about Spinbox, including FACT, NME, Discogs, Uncrate, Stuff and DJMag.
Our dream is to bring even more people into the vinyl community. If you love music like we do, join us and get a Spinbox!
