Ricatech B.V. has released the first series of Elvis Presley Limited Edition Record Players, and handed over the very first copy to a Elvis fan in The Netherlands. We where at home of Elvis fan "Piet Spietman" living in Maarssen in The Netherlands. There was a press moment. Piet Spietman: "i have waited a long time for this moment, and now i finally got my Elvis turntable. As a Elvis fan this is a great and unique product to have; playing my Elvis records on a Elvis Presley turntable is fantastic! It also is a beautiful piece for my Elvis collection, and looking great in my living room."
This turntable in one of the 3 models that have been designed and produced by Ricatech. There are 3 models with each a special design of a certain period of Elvis Presley: the 50's period, the 68' Comeback Special and the 70's Leas Vegas period. Ricatech is a worldwide license holder of Elvis Presley Enterprises, and is manufacturer of jukeboxes and record players. Last year, Ricatech released a high end, limited edition Elvis Presley jukebox. This jukebox, with a current retail sales value € 24.000,- was made 50pcs worldwide only. The Elvis Presley turntables are released in August, and are a big success already. All units of the first production run are sold out before arrival.
