Standing the test of time, turntables are once again a top choice for music lovers of all sorts. While a flat piece of vinyl can't hold as many songs as a Spotify playlist, few things beats the ritual of putting on a record on and letting it play in its entirety, in the manner the artist intended it to be played. Not to mention the wow factor brought on by displaying your cool record collection with all the glory of awesome album covers.
