Victrola Vintage Suitcase Turntable
People are looking to get into vinyl, which is an excellent thing because this gets them interested these are affordable. It’s a high starting point. They’re portable. They’ve got a lot of features that people want, and you know it gets them on the road to collecting vinyl. You can if you don’t have a record player yet. This is an excellent option for you. You can be up and running with a record player, and these are self-contained. So you don’t need any stereo system or extra equipment of any sort everything you need is in this one package. So again, it’s a great option. These are available in a variety of colors and patterns you can choose which one you want. I thought it was going to be it’s got sort of a leather surface to it beautiful metal corners to protect it from getting dinged up. Like I said itself contains the speakers are built-in, and we’ll go through all of that. It’s got the connections on the back there for output stereo output. Your power cord The hinges sound isolating feet, which is important to keep things from you know vibrating too much and not considering that the speakers and the unit are self-contained. The sound must be as isolated as possible there, so that’s a good thing.
If you noticed the panel where the power and the audio connects had got a little film. These suitcase record players will you know damage your records. They will not, again, these track at about five grams, which is well within the standard spec of three to seven. That records are designed to be played in terms of down pressure on the stylus. So don’t worry about that go take off a twisty tie we’re gonna remove the stylus protector. We’re spin alright, setting these materials aside, and remember that stylus you want the replacement stylus to be set aside somewhere. We have a line input. So you can connect CD players, tape players, anything that doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity. That we use as speakers on the front of the unit, we have a knob that selects Bluetooth/bt, line input, and phone opening the phonograph the record player. This is your input select, so if you want a line in, you select the line input. Down there, we have a combination of power and volume. That’s got a good snap to it. We want the cool purple light. You know it’s a heavy knob. When you turn a knob, and it’s got some weight to it, this one does. So to me again, that’s a quality item right there. I like that, and then you’ve got your headphone input. So you can listen to headphones if you want to enjoy records without disturbing those around you. You’ve got an auto stop switch, which is kind of interesting. So if you wish to the record player to automatically stop when you get to the end. You flip the auto stop on if you want it to just spin around in the end loop there without it stopping flip that to off. That’s pretty unique. Most record players either have that enabled or didn’t. They don’t allow you to choose it. This is a three-speed player. You’ve got 33 45 and 78. That will enable you to play all three speeds of records that are you know commonly used for the 78. If you put it on a 78 setting even though it’ll be spinning at 78 rpm, that needle will not fill the Groove. So it’s not damaging to the needle. It’s not damaging to the record, but the sound it’ll be a little bit noisier. Because of that record, if you think of the Groove as being wider on a 78 and the needle the stylus is being thinner, it’s kind of bottoming out versus a wider stylus that would feel that better.
You know, get the information off of the groove walls more efficiently. The thinner needle still gets it and follows the you know the basic contour of the Groove. Still, it does it at the expense of a lot of surface noise using the cue lever you can raise it and then rotate the stylus over the record it starts spinning automatically, and this will let that a queuing lever allows you to lower and raise a stylus without having to do it with your hands so you don’t drop it or you don’t put it down too forcefully The speaker sound full. They sound like you know what you would expect for a quality speaker of that size to sound like. So I think you’d get a lot of enjoyment out of that.
It’s a quality sound that will you’ll be able to enjoy when you’re in fairly proximity. This probably wouldn’t be the record player. Uses your single audio device at a party, but for private listening or a medium to small-sized room, this would fill it adequately, I believe. The sound is full. You get a full range spectrum of audio. You get base. You get a bright high end, so the sound staging it is well-balanced and more than adequate for this size and type of a player. And again, for the cost, you’re getting so much. Because you can also do Bluetooth and – you know to pair the device with this player, you also get Bluetooth connectivity. So you can pair it as you would any other type of Bluetooth speaker and play audio digitally through that as well. So it gives you a lot of options. So this essentially is a self fully enclosed sound system you’ve got any audio device. You want to hook up line in you’ve got any device you want a Bluetooth connect and obviously. You know three speeds of records. So for those of you in an apartment or you want a record player, you don’t have a lot of space, and you don’t need one of the vests. All the other components this is gonna be perfect for you. Because you’re gonna get everything in a tiny package. So you know when you’re done, make sure you put the stylus lock back on. Close the lid, and you are ready to go in this self-contained portable device.
So a really good option I would highly recommend it. And something that you would want to consider if you know your space limited and you want something that’s quality.
One of these suitcase players and are they you know these suitcase players are largely responsible for the resurgence in vinyl. Because you know it’s a portable thing, it’s affordable. It’s cool. It’ll fit into any space, and the quality is excellent. So I would highly recommend it — a lot of bang for your buck a lot of versatility.
