In with the Old

New ways with vinyl….

Vinyl records have enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years, despite the cost (£18-£30 on average) young people are embracing the look and feel of the long playing record and I for one, could not be happier. To embrace this as well as continue playing my rather large collection I have moved into the 21st century with this 20th century styled piece of kit.

A gloriously retro-feel, this ‘all-in-one’ plays LP’s, singles, CD’s, cassette tapes, connects to mobile devices via Bluetooth and has an AM/FM radio. The built-in speakers are more than adequate and for any fan of retro it makes for a great addition to your house or apartment. You would be forgiven for thinking I have copied and pasted their advert but I can assure you it’s a very worthwhile and economic investment.

These units are well worth considering if, like me, you are not a HI-FI aficionado but do love listening to vinyl records. Most of my own collection dates from the 70s and 80s and they have been well played so a £1,000 turntable is going to be lost on most of it. For me, it is the physical act of playing an LP and hearing the imperfections which create a unique atmosphere in listening to music. Since buying it I have rediscovered my love of vinyl and realised more than ever, what we have largely lost in the download age.
