We all live in a yellow submarine!

In April 1968, the unique and very special Beatles movie “Yellow Submarine” came into the cinemas. It was one of their most famous pieces in history. Now, fifty years later Apple Corps Ltd and Universal Music Group are reintroducing this movie, restored in 4k digital resolution. In order to offer Beatles fans of all ages the enjoyment of watching this one of a kind experience. The movie will be released across many cinemas in Northern America with remixed 5.1 stereo surround sound.


The Beatles Yellow Submarine turntable

As big fans of the work of the Beatles, we are proud to introduce this collaboration and number five of our Beatles series. The Yellow Submarine turntable is the most distinctive of the five yet. With its unique shape, it is sure to attract many looks and love from Beatles fans. By adding a glass platter to the turntable, we made sure that this masterpiece won‘t get covered and can be enjoyed in full glory.

The supplied cartridge comes again from our long-time partner Ortofon. Especially for this edition, Ortofon has created a yellow Concorde cartridge, called Sonar. The S-shaped aluminium arm adds a touch of harmony to the sound. Special decoupling feet make sure that the turntable is safely standing on its ground without worrying about vibrations.
