What to look out for with your first turntable in 2024

Vinyl records do incredible numbers. LP sales are at their highest level since the 1990s, after sixteen consecutive years of rising sales, and it’s no wonder why: Vinyl records not only sound good, they’re beautiful visual and tactile things, too.

As much as we love the best music streaming services, selecting a record, putting it on one of the best turntables and putting the needle on the record provides something far more satisfying than clicking an icon on your phone. And you can’t show off a Spotify subscription by placing it prominently on a shelf.
