As far as we know, MP3s might be the end-all musical medium. Comforting to know, yes (no more Discmans). But it leaves us feeling a little static. Where’s the fun in MP3 files? Electronic album art? Luckily, some music junkies have turned the tables and invested in their own, well, turntables. Maybe it’s the authentic sound the cracks and pops lend to our favorite Joni Mitchell melodies, or perhaps the idea of having a hefty record collection makes us yearn for a little London Calling. Either way, we’re hungry for this reborn niche novelty. We’re giving in to the record revival and turning the volume up to 11. Here are a few of our selections for potential players to call our own (all for under $200!). Recommendations welcome, too, so let us know your favorites in the comments section below.
