All Hail the Return of the Turntable.
Although some people thought the return of the turntable was no more than a passing fad, we’re proud to present our own carefully vetted list of the best turntables for 2023, 11 different models in all, culled by price, features and performance.
Premier audio brands all over the world have stepped up their turntable game, offering turntable product lines for every budget. And, regardless of price point, all of the turntables we carry are high quality - because we're serious vinyl lovers at heart. From manufacturers like Rega, Audio-Technica, McIntosh, Denon, and more, our pros weighed in on the features you should focus on at every tier.
The good news for newbies: if you’re not sure you’ll fall in love with playing records, you can opt for a turntable as low as $100. That way, you get the same tactile experience so many others rave about (and surprisingly good sound) without a major $ commitment. Then, if you do fall in love vinyl, you can drop serious bucks on a serious set-up and start enjoying the kind of goosebumps only vinyl can make happen.
However, if you’re a serious music lover who already appreciates the difference quality gear brings to the table, welcome to what many consider the industry’s finest repository of all-things music playing: World Wide Stereo.
Whether you are new to the world of turntables or a lifelong fan, we offer a standing invitation to any of our turntable clinics as well as complimentary time – as little or as much as you want – to consult with any of our World Wide Stereo audio technicians.
