A Guide To The Best Vinyl Record Players

Out with the new, in with the old.  The best vinyl record players on the market now have revived old school, as vinyl records can be played on the retro looking but with modern technology vinyl record players.

Vinyl record players otherwise known as turntables, can look good in your household with many different types of finishes to choose from.  Vinyl records can also give you a return on investment, as they can increase in value or retain their value.

 

How To Choose The Best Vinyl Record Player

Buying a vinyl record player might not be as easy as buying an audio device such as a docking station for your iPhone, as it can be a lot more complex in terms of the mechanics involved, maintenance, operation and features.

Our goal is to explain to you anything that can be complex to understand so it’ll be easier for you to decide on choosing the best vinyl record player.

Many cool briefcase style turntables for easy transportation

Style – For those who travel a lot with their turntable, the best portable turntables for travelling would be a briefcase style with built-in speakers. 

Bluetooth – Get more use out of your vinyl record player by playing music wirelessly through any compatible Bluetooth enabled audio device such as your smartphone.  You’ll in effect be using the vinyl player’s speakers to play music, just like you would with a mini Bluetooth speaker.

Speed settings – The speeds at which the turntable is capable of playing records at, although pretty much all LP records will spin at 33 1/3.

Built-in speakers – Having built-in speakers enables you to play music through the speakers of the turntable.  If the turntable is going to be used to host your own parties, you can also consider an artificial snow machine for special effects.

RCA output – Connect to external speakers using the RCA cables, even if your model has built-in speakers you can switch to external speakers to really blast out the sound.

Aux input – Plug in any compatible audio device via the aux input and play music through the turntable.

Headphone jack – If you prefer to listen to music without disturbing others then simply plug in your headphones.  For models without a headphone jack, if the vinyl player is connected to speakers then you can plug your headphones into the headphone jack of the speakers.

Box contents – Some of the packages will come with more items such as RCA cables so no need to buy them separately, but check to see what the box contents include beforehand so you know whether you need to purchase any additions.

 

How To Convert Vinyl Records Into Digital Format

If we’ve put “yes” next to “convert into digital format” for a model in our table then you can convert any vinyl record into digital format so you listen to vinyl records in MP3 format without having to use the turntable.

This can be quite a time consuming process as the conversion process is done in real time, so you’ll have to wait for the duration of however long the record is.  Then after you will need to go into the software to make sure the audio sounds smooth and split the record into the appropriate tracks, otherwise it’ll just be one long track!

The USB port is used to connect to your PC or laptop when you want to convert vinyl records into digital format.  You’re usually supplied with the converter software CD which you’ll have to install on your PC to transfer vinyl records.

Also don’t forget that the stylus (needle) on a vinyl player wears down over time, so this will need replacing when it’s worn down.  This guide will tell you how to change the needle on a vinyl player.
