Everyone is talking about vinyl these days and with good reason! In a supposedly digital age it’s heartening to see so many people, from every generation, reconnecting with new and classic albums on vinyl. We’ve hand-picked a small range of turntables which we will be stocking so you too can join the vinyl revolution!
The Entry Level…
For those just starting out in the world of vinyl the Steepletone SRP025 and SRP030S (pictured below) offer a handy, portable option which also has real retro charm! Unlike other portable suitcase-style turntables, which have small speakers built into the case, these have detachable speakers which offer better sound quality and no distortion… the SRP025 has 1 large speaker and retails at 59.99, the SRP030S has splittable stereo speakers and is 69.99. Both are available in a range of colours and would make a great gift for younger buyers and those in need of a portable plug-in-and-play option.
For those looking for a quality but affordable option that is still relatively hassle-free we have the Lenco L-85 turntable in stock for £120. This very user-friendly deck has the distinct advantage of featuring a built-in phono stage, meaning you can run a pair of active speakers directly into the deck, no amp required! The L-85 looks sleek and modern, has a clear perspex lid and comes in either black, white, red or green. The lightweight deck is surprisingly sturdily built and is also USB compatible so you can record your records to digital, this comes highly recommended.
And if you’re really serious…
We are now also stocking the highly rated Rega RP1 turntables which retail for £245. These simple but exquisitely engineered decks have been rated so highly by What Hi-Fi that they are considered a strong challenger to the likes of Pro-Ject, who have dominated the market at this price range. With Rega’s skill for high-end equipment channelled into an affordable deck this is a quality piece of kit for those looking to build a home listening set-up.
We now also carry a range of turntables by Dual and Bluetooth speakers from Edifier (pictured below). We are also now able to offer a fairly large range of alternative decks, speakers and other hi-fi equipment to order in within a couple of days. Feel free to ask in store and we’ll see if we can meet your hi-fi needs!
Alongside these turntables we have usually got stock of vinyl cleaning kits, including brushes, cleaning fluid, stylus brushes etc. We also have some rather nifty vinyl storage boxes from Steepletone which retail at £39.99 and come in a range of retro-cool colours.
