As a result of the LASER media showcase event last month and product review program, Trevor Long has reviewed and discussed in length, the Encore Grand Turntable on his weekly technology segment on the 2UE Lifestyle radio show.
The segment begins with Trevor asking his co-host how much he thinks a turntable for his old LPs would cost, with an answer of $400 coming back to him. Stating that the Laser Encore Grand Turntable is only $200, Trevor goes in to describe the design and capability of the product and that it offers “every possible source of audio in one box.”
Noting that it has a speaker in the front, Trevor highlights that it’s “not a hi fi system to blow your mind; it has audio out so you can input it into your stereo system if you wanted to” but that he has “had this sitting in my man cave for a few weeks…I sat and listened to both sides of a Billy Joel cassette.”
The Encore Grand Turntable is positioned as a “cracker gift to buy right now – you will find someone who will want it at Christmas.” Noting that JB Hi Fi are selling more vinyl relate products than they are Blu Ray disc movies, Trevor continues to highlight that the Encore Grand has “been so popular at Big W and Laser are selling so many that there are no more units for journalists to look at.”

Trevor has also written a review about the turntable on his website, EFTM where he states “Laser Encore Grand has it all!” and dubs it as “an absolute winner.” Please see this link for the review: http://eftm.com.au/2016/09/fully-retro-audio-laser-encore-grand-has-it-all-our-review-32111
Trevor also shared a post on his Twitter account with a photo of the Encore Grand Turntable. From this, influential Sky News radio host Paul Murray responded to Trevor’s tweet asking for a unit to be sent to his office, which is fantastic news.
