Looking to buy Retro Record Players?

For decades, a record player was the best and only way to listen to all your favourite tunes. Before the appearance of cassettes, CD players and online streaming, turntables ruled the roost when it came to premium audio quality, producing the best analogue music with their warm, comforting crackles and superior stereo sound. 

After lying dormant on piles of 80s memorabilia, they’re now making a storming comeback – and it’s really not hard to see why! Thanks to their retro appeal (especially in the examples listed here), nostalgic hum, and striking vintage aesthetic (not to mention their union with those tactile black discs we’ve come to know and love), record players are truly experiencing a renaissance. Whether you’re just starting your vinyl collection or are a seasoned LP connoisseur, you’ll find a fantastic range of retro turntables and accessories here in our online audio catalogue

What’s a retro record player?

Despite what the name suggests, retro record players aren’t necessarily the oldest ones on offer. In fact, they’re all pretty ‘new’ in terms of manufacture date and tech. As with most examples on our list, these vintage turntables are simply made to look… well, vintage! With portable case designs, groovy 70s colours, and funky artwork to choose from, you’ll really be stuck for choice with OnBuy’s extensive selection. 

Whichever way you choose to listen to music, you may or may not fully understand exactly how record players work… they are somewhat of a musical mystery, after all. Turntables are, put simply, electromagnetic devices that change sound vibrations into electric signals, which are then fed into amplifiers that feed the resulting sound into speakers. 

What are the best retro record player brands available?

As with many turntable brands, the choice is as unique and distinctive as the people who choose to buy them. No two are the same, which is certainly an attractive quality if exclusivity and individuality are your primary preferences. Of all the retro record players on offer, Denver, Digitnow!, and Victrola seem to be the best when it comes to nostalgia and convenience combined. At a range of competitive price points too, it’s definitely worth considering your options before taking the plunge.
