Some vinyl lovers adore the idea of futuristic vinyl player, AKA turntable, but if you are those who long for a turntable that befits the vinyl-era look, well, then look no further than the Signature Vinyl Record Player Classic Turntable Stereo System from Electrohome. Clad in a real wood veneer finished enclosure, this particular turntable mimics the look of an old fashion radio, complete with details like amber lighting on the analog tuning dial, rotary control knob, , antiqued patina faceplate, and an era-accurate speaker grille which we all fondly remember.
Apart from playback the good’ol vinyls at a variety of speeds (33, 45, and 78), this retro-licious system also touts an AM/FM turner, a CD player, along with a USB port for accepting USB flash drive loaded with music files, as well as auxiliary input, in case you prefer to hook it up with other sources. It does not have a headphone jack though. It does, however, boasts a more than decent speaker setup, featuring a pair of 2.6″ driver putting out 5W each and a pair of 15W 3.6″ drivers. So, you really need not to fuss about what speaker should it go with cos’ it has those built-in.
Signature Vinyl Record Player Classic Turntable Stereo System will run you back at $199.99, which is about how much a speaker-less turntable costs these days, but as a boon, you get to enjoy your favorite tunes on CD, radio, and even USB storage, and it comes with a remote, plus a 45 record adapter, just in case you need one. The only thing it does not support is streaming, else it would be a perfect machine in both looks and functionality departments.
A huge shout out to Paolo Ramos for the hat tip!
