Learn about the anatomy of a turntable using our handy guide!
You love vinyl, we love vinyl, we ALL love vinyl! However, you can’t play your sweet limited pressings, colored vinyl variants, reissues and re-releases WITHOUT a turntable.
We realized that many people who own vinyl, are unfamiliar with turntables. We totally get it. Outside of your “all-in-one” turntables, purchasing a turntable (or upgrading your current one) can be a pretty daunting task, especially for those of us who have never owned a record player before. Direct Drive or Belt Drive? What is an Anti-Skate? What’s a stylus? How do you balance your tonearm? We hope to answer all of these questions (and more) with our handy-dandy guide.
We’ll release a new guide regularly, covering different aspects of owning a turntable. In the end, we’ll compile all of these guides into an “all-in-one” guide that you can download and print and use as a reference, or share with your friends/family!
This week, we’ll start with Turntable Basics: Anatomy of a Turntable. So without further ado, check out our first guide below!
