Are record players still relevant in 2018? It really depends on what kind of music you’re looking for. Nowadays, even the latest beat heavy and modern music is already available in vinyl form. What advantages then, might a record player, have over the usual stereo systems or speakers? Well, as a true audiophile, I’ve experienced my fair share of music listening and even audio editing. From what I can tell, the more time and money you spend on your record player, the better it’ll sound.
Unlike speakers, you have the option to freely customize your record player based on your own liking. Conventional speakers really only have the bass and treble levels that you can adjust. Record players, on the other hand, have an entire plethora of parts that you can change and tweak. Each part plays a different role in the overall music production. The more delicate and higher quality parts can cost a bomb, but that shouldn’t deter you from trying to find the best bang for your buck.
We’re currently testing out a few of the top rated record players of 2018 and will be posting up a buyer’s guide soon. We’ll include a record player for every budget so don’t worry if you don’t have or don’t want to spend so much money on one. We’ve got you covered.
