From Engadget - January 9, 2018

The Peloton Tread is a swanky, $3,995 treadmill that comes packing a 32-inch HD touchscreen for watching classes, both live and on-demand. It's better looking than most treadmills, too, and the speed / incline buttons have been replaced with chunky rubber knobs that offer far easier control. In addition, hit the center of each knob and you will be able to increase your speed and incline by one whole integer without fuss.

The belt itself is comprised of 59 aluminum slats coated in thick rubber that give the treadmill the feel of a springy dance hall floor. It's surprisingly comfortable, and if you, like me, suffer from shin splints, then you will notice a lack of discomfort when your feet strike the surface. Everything else, as you would expect from a Peloton product, is luxurious and well-designed, a league above what you'd see in a regular gym.

Below the display is a 20 Watt sound bar, but if you'd rather work with headphones, you can connect your Bluetooth set to the system. Those preferring to stick with a wired option can also jack in with the 3.5mm port. Both the speaker and the belt drive itself are covered in a nylon blend fabric that make the device look a little less intimidating should you have it in your living room.
