Turntables & Record Players
The soft thump of a needle making contact with a record. The warm, full sound of classic vinyl. The excitement of hunting bins for that next amazing album to add to your collection. There’s something about vinyl records that just feels good. In a world gone digital, records are a haven of all that is good and nostalgic about music. Add a turntable to your hi fi collection and you’ll never want to do anything else but sit in a comfy chair, close your eyes, and get lost in the music. Our incredible selection of turntables combine that old-school charm with the very best modern technology, making this music format pure joy to listen to, and a must for any true audiophile.
Turntables (AKA record players) have come back big time in Australia, and we stock a massive range of them in both our Brisbane store and online to ship to you (for free*!) right around the country. And even though our selection is huge, we only carry the very best models, from top-name brands like Pro-Ject, Rega, Thorens, Clearaudio, Michell, Marantz and the best accessories from brands including Ortofon and Goldring.
Whatever your budget, you’ll be able to find a great turntable here. Our collection runs the gamut, all the way from the wallet-friendly Pro-ject Elemental (a top-rated entry level turntable as ranked by What Hi Fi?), to the Thorens TD 550 (which earned a spot on CNET’s list of The World’s Most Beautiful Turntables). Whether you're new to vinyl records, or an audiophile seeking the purest of vinyl reproduction, you will find what you're looking for in our extensive range.
And heads up if you’re a DJ looking for something to scratch vinyl on - we don't stock DJ specific players. Our hi-fi record players are designed to reproduce high-fidelity sound and maintain your collection’s quality.
While a record player may seem simple, there are a lot of important elements to consider when you’re trying to find “the one”. There are players that are fully automatic, semi-automatic, and manual, as well as ones that include phono pre-amplifiers onboard, or USB outputs for recording. Some record players will also play at different speeds, including 78 RPM, 33 1/3 and 45rpm. And of course, they’ll have varying types and qualities of tonearms, cartridges, needles, and platters.
If you’re looking to record from your vinyl records onto a digital format, we stock a range of USB models that allow you to record your collection to a computer or compatible device, so you can listen to your recordings for years to come.
With so many to choose from, it might make your head spin! (That’s a little record-related humour there. We couldn’t resist.) If you’re having trouble narrowing down your choice, just give us a call, shoot us an email, or stop on by our store in Murarrie and have a listen. Our experts can help you figure out the perfect turntable for you, so you can focus on other things, like building your vinyl collection and finding the perfect cozy listening chair.
