5 gorgeous ways to go retro in 2017!
Vinyls are back in a big way. For many audio purists, no sound can compare to that brilliant moment when a stylus first sits down into a gorgeous vinyl groove. Read on to know more about some modern turntables out there that are making waves with their sound quality and bold looks!
Audio Technica AT-LP120 USB Turntable
This hunk sports direct a drive as opposed to the audiophile-preferred belt-driven system, this go-to starter turntable is rugged and reliable, and hosts plenty of features like a selectable internal pre-amp so you won’t necessarily need a phono input, a USB output to capture your vinyl in digital form.
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon
We can visualize you trying to decide if you should go with a flashy color from its seven available choices. Luckily, with a table this cool, there’s no wrong answer. Designed to set new standards in the affordable audiophile category, this belt-driven table boasts a carbon tube tonearm to reduce unwanted resonance.
Pro-ject USB Elemental Prono USB
This minimalist piece of awesome wears its belt on the outside, so you can watch the action first hand. And if you’re still not convinced, the entry-level Elemental tackles function just as well as form, with sleek features like a DC power supply for ultra-quiet running, gold-plated RCA contacts and cartridge pins.
Marantz TT42P Turntable
An icon in the home theater world, Marantz knows a thing or two about putting together a quality hi-fi system, and this little beauty will make a great addition to any beginner setup and beyond. Offering a pleasant balance of slick design and user-friendly features, the TT42P sports a built-in phono preamp, and more.
U-turn Orbit Plus
U-Turn’s Orbit Plus is designed with one thing in mind: superb audio at an affordable cost. The table’s construction is solid, with an MDF plinth and acrylic platter. There’s no built-in preamp, no USB connection, and no automatic function. There’s no cue lever either, so users will have to manually set the needle.
