Vitriola Aviator

$132.63

The Victrola Aviator is a must own for any connoisseur of vintage formats, you’re getting a machine that can play radio, turntable, CD player, Bluetooth, aux,and tape deck. Another cool feature is that you can record music from vinyl and tape deck onto CD. That alone is a convincing reason to own this as updating old formats is usually a costly and annoying challenge. The absolutely gorgeous exterior means you’ll probably want this to be a centerpiece. Although I can’t speak for the sound quality of this particular device, I own a similar product and it sounds great. It’s a fun way to play old cassettes and records you find at the thrift store and because it’s so versatile, it means it’s the only retro audio equipment you’ll ever need. Although the price might seem high at first, this price is actually an absolute steal for a piece of equipment like this.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
