Many audiophiles believe the richest sound comes from good old-fashioned vinyl, and to tap into that sweet sound, you’ll need a good turntable. But that turntable doesn’t have to be old-fashioned. Today you can get the Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB turntable—a turntable with some modern touches—for $229, an all-time low.
This turntable can be operated manually at 33, 45, and 78 RPM. An aluminum platter cuts down on vibrations, while playback controls allow you to adjust pitch, play speed, and other parameters. Beyond its record-playing abilities, this turntable features a USB output to connect to a computer and digitize your music, which is especially great if you want to take some of your oldies on the go.
