Three Top Rated Records Players and Turntables That Will Turn Heads

Posted by LP Tunes on

The Minimalist’s Recommendation:
Denon DP-29F Turntable

The Denon DP-29F is designed for user-friendly operation. The tonearm is button-operated, so it starts playing the record by itself and automatically returns to its original position when the album finishes, which ensures that the vinyl won’t get scratched.

The die-cast aluminum body, formed with precision and uniformity, makes the turntable steady for a higher quality of sound. A phono preamp and a Moving Magnet Cartridge are built-in for easy connection to speaker systems and faster setup.

Minimal buttons create a sleek, simplistic design for music lovers who don’t want to be confused with the clutter of adjustable knobs and dials. In addition to its easy use, the DP-29F is among the most inexpensive turntables on our market, giving new listeners easy access to the experience of classic vinyl records.

The Connoisseur’s Choice:
VPI SuperScoutmaster Turntable with JMW-9 Signature Tonearm

From 27 years of turntable development comes the third generation of the greatest LP playback devices, the VPI SuperScoutmaster Turntable with a JMW-9 signature tonearm.

This player is a hybrid, the result of crossing a VPI Scoutmaster with an HR-X system—the highest quality turntable paired with the most accurate motor drive. It has a massive flywheel, providing more momentum and smoother rotation. Its non-resonant, laminated chassis and periphery ring clamp lessen the likelihood of speed changes due to warps in the records, and it has an inverted bearing that runs on silent teflon. All the precision-crafted details that have gone into the making of the VPI SuperScoutmaster are what values it as a state-of-the-art machine.

The DJ’s Favorite:
Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Turntable

The Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB was crafted for the sole purpose of delivering DJ’s highest quality of sound. It’s capable of playing 33 1/3s, 45s, and 78s.

Not only is a phono preamp built in for quick connection to speaker systems, but the turntable also has a USB output for direct link to computers—along with software compatible with both Macs and PCs—to convert a record’s music to digital audio files.

The AT-LP1240-USB has a start/stop button, as well as adjustable knobs that can regulate the timing, can brake, and can even reverse the direction of the platter’s rotation. Pitch and speed are customizable, as well. The S-shaped tonearm comes with an anti-skate adjustment, a height modifier, a ground lug, a hydraulic action and lift lever, an adjustable counterweight, and a rest with a locking mechanism. Its stroboscopic, aluminum platter guarantees low resonance, and its direct-drive motor rotates with accuracy and stability.

Just like music, a turntable reflects the style of the listener. Find the best record player that matches your tastes at LP Tunes.

Just as promised

The styli were a perfect fit for a stereo 31 years old. Have been enjoying my vinyl again. Fast service to have it received in Australia. Highly recommended.

Easy fix!

Changing the stylus out was easy and it is working great!

Thank you for my B&O belt and it is now time to spin some vinyl!

Still works.

This replaced one (AT record "sonic broom") I bought in 1977 and it still works really well.

Great recomendation!

The model of stylus I ordered was out of stock so a substitute was recommended. I purchased the recommended stylus and I received it in record (no pun intended) time! It sounds great and I am very pleased with my purchase! Thank you!

My new needle works perfectly! Still listening to albums. I have a lot of great music from before CDs. Thanks!

Upgrade on AT LP60XBT

While it took some time to ship to Canada it was worth the wait. Noticeable sound improvement, particularly with bottom end. Very satisfied.
