Victrola has unveiled the Victrola Stream Onyx at the 2023 CES. This is a streaming turntable that builds on the foundation of its Stream Carbon wireless turntable which was released in September 2022. 

The Onyx is certified as a Works with Sonos Product. Just like the Carbon, the Onyx is a wireless vinyl listening solution that allows users to enjoy their favorite records through their entire Sonos system, with no additional equipment required.
