While digital downloading has its upsides, it can't be denied that many people still prefer the hands-on appeal of vinyl and record players. Of course, it's no wonder why - you simply can't beat the feeling of laying down a needle on a new piece of wax, reading along to a lyrical sheet and holding a beautifully-detailed piece of cover art in your hands. Thankfully, respected audio companies have taken advantage of vinyl's popularity growth and specialize in first-rate turntables - many of which can be found in this section.
Bluetooth One of the great things about many new record players is that they're combined with modern technology to give you the best of both old-school and new-school worlds. In this catalog you'll come across any impressive variety of high-quality turntables with Bluetooth connectivity. For example, the Crosley Bound Bluetooth Record Player or Audio-Technica LP60BK-BT give you the option of enjoying your favorite groups on vinyl or your preferred streaming device. They also boast a mobile roadie-style case, 3 speeds and deliver exceptionally loud sound for their compact size.
Direct-Drive This selection is packed with affordable belt-drive turntables that are perfect for casual music listeners. With that being said, most experienced vinyl enthusiasts and DJs favor direct-drive turntables because of their stronger torque and ability to provide more consistent speeds. A fantastic top-selling direct-drive record player is the Audio-Technica LP120. Not only does it feature a direct-drive motor for fast start-ups, but it also comes with Mac and PC-compatible Audacity software to convert your favorite albums to digital audio files. Want another option? How about the TEAC TN-300. What you have here is an analog record player with phono EQ and a USB output for CD-quality digitized archiving of your wax. From its sturdy and stylish design to its impeccable sound quality, the TN-300 is another excellent example of how today's turntable manufacturers take full advantage of new technologies.
Stereo Record Players Along with the stunning record players mentioned above, be sure to also explore the many stereo record players that are complete with dynamic full range speakers and gorgeous cabinets that would look stunning in any living space. For instance, the Crosley CR704C Musician 5-in-1 Entertainment Center is an eye-catching music player with vintage style and loaded with a CD player and cassette deck to boot. There's no two ways about it - you couldn't have found a better catalog to buy a new record player so the next move is yours!
