Though the classic mahogany design looks nostalgic, this record player from Victrola is totally high tech; it has a three-speed turntable, CD player, cassette player, FM radio, aux cord and Bluetooth. With this device, you can play your favorite albums any way you like.
Rave Review: "We love it. The sound is amazing! My wife and I will primarily be using it for CD's, but it's awesome that we can hook up our Bluetooth devices to play through these speakers, as well as play records, cassettes (don't have any) or just listen to FM radio. I bought it for something downstairs in the basement workshop, but it's so pretty and so great sounding it's staying upstairs and the old player will be going downstairs."
With its belt-driven system, this three-speed turntable from WOCKODER reduces vibration and creates a superior sound experience. It also comes with a removable dust cover that will protect your records from damage.
Rave Review: "This was the perfect record player for my family. It is easy to use and [has] great sound quality! I couldn’t believe we got all this for the price we paid. I would recommend this to anyone on the lookout for a good record player at a reasonable price."

What's vintage is cool again thanks to this sleek three-speed turntable. A solid wood block serves as the base for two full-range stereo speakers and an all-in-one turntable. This device is also compatible with Bluetooth and even has an auto stop on/off switch.
Rave Review: "The sound quality to my Sennheiser WIFI headphones is phenomenal. Don't judge this turntable until you have heard the sound quality with a top-quality set of speakers or headset and a high-end record - Ange, London, Duetchagrammphone, etc. It has more output jacks than most. I gave it four stars because it does not have a tonearm that does autostop. If the manufacturer included that feature, this turntable would be unstoppable."

One of the more affordable turntables on the market, this record player from Victrola sits within a funky little suitcase. Choose from 20 different colors, and enjoy built-in Bluetooth, stereo speakers and an easy-to-carry handle.
Rave Review: "This record player is amazing! I was hesitant to buy because some of the reviews were saying it was broken or the speakers sucked, but I got this for my boyfriend who is a musician, and he is in love with it. It sounds great and plays the records great! So happy with this purchase. I 100% recommend it."

Just as its name suggests, this turntable has a professional aesthetic: a matte black base, metallic details and an acrylic dust cover to top it all off. The turntable is compatible with USBs, Macs and PCs and has the ability to forward and reverse play as well.
Rave Review: "I don't normally do reviews on anything but making an exception in this case. After years and years of people saying, 'it sounds better on vinyl' and owning an entry-level player for the last 8 months [I] just caved in and got this. It blows everything out of the park. Putting it together was fairly simple and took about 20 minutes tops. Right out of the case the player feels solid, sturdy and classy."

With a balanced aluminum S-Type tonearm, this record player ensures that the stylus is rested deep in your record's groove, so you get the best sound. The base is also made from beautiful walnut and gives the device a mature, almost masculine look.
Rave Review: "I will preface by saying that for the price point you are receiving a lot of bang for your buck. The tonearm is superb, the Audio Technica cartridge is clear and mostly uncolored, the rubber mat is high quality, the base is solid and heavy (this is a really good thing), the built-in preamp is enough to get you started and enjoying your favorite records (although, I do recommend getting an upgraded external phono preamp as your next upgrade), and the turntable just overall looks fantastic. I love it!"
