OVERALL RATING: 9.7 out of 10

Teac’s all-in-one record player goes all out to provide every playback option you could ever need.

The turntable plays 33, 45, and 78-rpm vinyl records, and features a unique player arm design that is easy to put in place without scratching records and returns to its standby position when the record reaches its end. While the sapphire needle needs to be replaced frequently, replacements are cheaply available from Teac and changing the needle out is easy.

The CD player, cassette player, and radio have similar versatility. The cassette player takes normal and high tapes, while the CD player allows shuffle or programmed playlist modes. The radio is digital, which may not feel vintage but makes navigation easier by enabling you to store up to 9 presets.

Where this player really shines is in its recording features. Vinyls and cassettes, as well as the radio or auxiliary inputs, can all be recorded to CDs in the player itself with the push of a button. By attaching your computer via USB, you can record from any of the playback modes directly to your music library.

While the built-in speakers do a great job for most playback, the player also includes a standard RCA port in the back to connect external speakers.

Although this record player is one of the most expensive on the market, it delivers for the price. The playback and recording versatility is unmatched – you won’t find yourself needing any other audio devices to supplement the Teac player. The only ding is that playing digital inputs requires a wire as there’s no Bluetooth capability.

PROS:
  • Extremely versatile playback
  • The sound is great
  • Replaceable sapphire needle
  • CD player allows shuffle or programmed playlist modes
  • Cassette player takes normal and high tapes
  • Recording of records, cassettes, and radio to CDs, or all inputs to USB-connected computer
  • Digital radio is easy to use

CONS:
  • Higher cost segment
  • No Bluetooth

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • High-quality external speakers
  • Replaceable needle
  • Optional diamond stylus for SP records
  • LCD display
  • Bluetooth pairing for wireless audio
  • Radio and built-in CD player
  • Remote control

OVERALL RATING: 9.5 out of 10

Teac designed a modern turntable that’s great for occasional vinyl listeners and digital enthusiasts alike.

The turntable can play your entire collection of vinyls without issue, since it is compatible with all standard record sizes and can play back at 33, 45, and 78-rpm speeds. The player comes standard with a sapphire-tipped stylus, but Teac also makes an optional diamond needle for this player that is specific for SP-style records.

The CD player and radio are fully digital and packed with features thanks to the built-in LCD screen that enables easily reading through option menus. Repeat and shuffle play options are programmable, and the radio can store up to 20 AM and 20 FM stations as presets. In addition, you can set your music to turn on or off at a specific time, turn on a sleep timer, or even set an alarm clock.

The included speakers have great sound quality and attach via a standard RCA jack in case you want to add even more advanced speakers to the player.

One of the best features of this turntable is that it has Bluetooth to connect to your digital audio devices. Along with the included remote, this means that you can control music from anywhere in your home rather than be tethered by an auxiliary cord.

The only downside to this player is that, unlike many competitor all-in-one systems, it lacks recording features. That means that you won’t be able to digitize your vinyl collection, although with this turntable you may not need to.

Teac’s player combines a solid turntable to spin your vinyl collection with modern audio necessities like Bluetooth connectivity, alarm clock features, and a digital radio with tons of presets. However, it lacks recording functions so it won’t be a help for those looking to digitize their record collections.

PROS:
  • LCD screen enables tons of playback and alarm features
  • Digital radio with lots of presets
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • High-quality external speakers sound great, but are also replaceable

CONS:
  • Doesn’t have functionality for recording vinyl to MP3s
  • No cassette player

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • Bluetooth compatible and auxiliary cable input
  • Analog FM radio
  • CD and cassette players
  • Cable for Apple devices included
  • Beautiful vintage wooden design

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

Victrola, a long-standing player in the audio industry, has combined the best of antique record players with modern digital technology in this all-in-one record player.

The turntable itself is highly versatile and can play any standard record size in 33 1/3, 45, and 75-rpm playback speeds. The needle and cartridge can cause some issues, however, as they do not place enough pressure on some records to play correctly.

The exterior is a beautiful wood-finished cabinet design, complete with an analog radio and oversized dial display in the center. The flanking stereo speakers boast decent sound quality, although it is also possible to attach external speakers through a standard RCA jack.

The player does have Bluetooth for wireless digital playback. It also has an auxiliary input to accept devices that aren’t Bluetooth-enabled. There are also built-in cassette and CD players, so you can take full advantage of this really affordable record player.

Given that this player is inexpensive, it can be a good choice for those looking for a vintage turntable paired with Bluetooth capability and CD and cassette players as additional features. However, the analog radio and lack of recording functionality severely limit the versatility of this player compared to others in its class.

PROS:
  • Wooden vintage exterior
  • Bluetooth capable
  • Great features for the price

CONS:
  • No recording vinyls to MP3s

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 75-rpm records
  • Diamond stylus needle
  • Beautiful vintage hardwood cabinet exterior
  • Analog AM/FM radio
  • Integrated CD and cassette players
  • Compatible with digital music via auxiliary cable
  • Bluetooth compatible

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

Crosley’s record player combines the best of vintage style with all the modern digital essentials.

The turntable itself is highly adaptable, with the ability to play 7, 10, and 12-inch records at 33 1/3, 45, and 75 rpm using an easily replaceable diamond stylus. The dual stereo speakers produce a rich, full-bodied sound, the tenor of which is helped by the player’s wooden frame.

The exterior is where this record player really shines – literally. The hardwood frame is finished with Crosley’s vintage-looking Paprika veneer, which gives it a beautiful sheen while maintaining the illusion that the player could be straight out of the 1960’s. The only downside to this vintage style is that the buttons appear faded, and thus can be hard to read. The analog radio also requires manual tuning, which can take practice for people used to digital seek functions. The CD player on the front adds to the vintage look, while the integrated cassette player is well-hidden on the side of the wooden frame.

The vintage exterior hides an essential modern feature, too – the record player accepts a typical 3.5-mm headphone cord to connect smartphones or other digital devices.

This player is highly recommended for anyone looking for a high-quality sound system with a wide array of capabilities, a vintage look, and no unnecessary frills. However, users looking for even more modern features, like built-in audio recording or a digital radio, may be disappointed.

PROS:
  • Beautiful vintage exterior
  • Versatile turntable
  • Auxiliary cable compatibility

CONS:
  • No built-in audio recording
  • Vintage style makes buttons hard to read
  • Non-replaceable stylus

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • Retro design
  • Digital radio and built-in CD player
  • Record vinyl records to computer
  • Bluetooth compatible

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

Victrola’s retro style record player may look like it’s straight out of the 1950’s, but it comes packed with a ton of modern features.

First, the turntable is the only one you’ll need – it can play 33, 45, and 78-rpm records. The sapphire-tipped stylus works well for playback, although it will need replacement with frequent use. Although the record playback is somewhat quiet on the built-in speakers compared to digital playback, the stereo system is plenty for daily listening.

The radio and CD players are welcome features that add to the versatility of this player, but the best feature of all is its Bluetooth compatibility. This makes it a ready wireless speaker, so that the player can serve as a home for all your music, both digital and analog. Note that some reviewers have had problems with the CD player, so you might need to check your record player carefully.

This is a solid choice for anyone looking for a reasonably priced record player that truly does it all. With the exception of cassette tape playback, it has everything you need – including Bluetooth capability and vinyl recording to MP3s on your computer.

PROS:
  • Beautiful vintage design
  • Digital radio and CD player
  • Bluetooth compatible
  • Records vinyls to computer via USB
  • Inexpensive for the features

CONS:
  • No cassette player
  • Some manufacturing issue with the CD player

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 75-rpm records
  • Sapphire needle on a ceramic cartridge for warm, high-fidelity playback
  • Four speakers
  • Retro design with cabinet for turntable
  • Integrated CD player
  • Analog AM/FM radio
  • Record vinyl records to USB port
  • Remote control

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

Electrohome’s all-in-one record player is light on features but delivers vintage beauty for those looking primarily for a turntable.

The turntable is all you’ll need for your entire record collection, as it is capable of playing 7, 10, and 12-inch records at 33, 45, and 78 rpm. The ceramic cartridge comes with a sapphire needle that produces a rich, warm sound when playing vinyls. The well-crafted stylus also won’t damage your records, so you can enjoy them for years to come.

The craftsmanship of the frame is also spectacular. It is made of real hardwood and finished with a walnut veneer, which adds to the warmth and tone of the playback. The design includes an opening cabinet cover over the turntable, and the large front-facing speaker and analog radio controls are reminiscent of years gone by.

The player features a built-in CD player, analog radio, and auxiliary cable input, but no cassette player. And while the built-in speakers are fine for everyday listening, there is no output port to connect additional speakers you might need for better sounding. Recording from vinyls is easy and doesn’t require a computer thanks to the built-in USB port.

Electrohome’s record player is great for those looking for a dedicated record player and a vintage fashion statement, but its versatility is quite limited compared to other all-in-one record players.

PROS:
  • Beautiful vintage design
  • Plays any vinyls in your collection without risk of needle damage
  • Records vinyls to built-in USB port

CONS:
  • Doesn’t accept external speakers
  • No cassette player
  • No Bluetooth capabilities

Features
  • Turntable plays 33, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • Built-in speakers
  • RCA out and aux in jacks
  • Highly portable design
  • Vinyl recording to MP3s
  • Bluetooth compatible
  • Remote control

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

If you’re looking for a record player that can move from place to place easily and take a beating, the 1byone player is perfect. The suitcase style design is as easy as it sounds – simply close the top, latch it, and you’re good to go. The reinforced design also protects the player against any bumps that may come along the way.

In terms of its audio capabilities, the record player is minimal but has everything you might need. The vinyl player can handle 33, 45, and 78-rpm records, and the player is equipped with Bluetooth to connect wirelessly with digital music devices as well as an auxiliary cable input. It also has an RCA jack to connect the player to a set of external speakers, although there are small built-in speakers that provide okay sound quality in a pinch.

Like many of the record players in its class, the 1byone can also record vinyls to your computer via USB. That means that, given its portability, you can digitize your record collection on the go.

If having a CD player and radio isn’t as important to you as the ability to travel with your player, this is an excellent choice.

PROS:
  • Highly portable
  • Bluetooth compatible
  • Vinyl recording to MP3s

CONS:
  • No CD or cassette player or radio
  • Small built-in speakers

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 and 45-rpm records
  • Two exterior 30-watt speakers
  • USB audio recording
  • Bluetooth-enabled
  • Modern-looking wooden base

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

Studebaker produced a modern and sleek record player that’s light on playback versatility, but provides great depth in the features it offers.

The turntable uses a magnetic cartridge that offers high-fidelity playback and easy setup. The downside, though, is that the cartridge isn’t suitable for playing heavier 78-rpm records, and so is limited to 33 and 45-rpm vinyls.

Rather than use built-in speakers, the record player comes with dual 30-watt Studebaker-branded speakers. These speakers can crank the volume and have a surprisingly strong bass return. For users looking to upgrade the speakers, the record player connects via standard RCA jacks.

While the record player doesn’t offer CD or cassette players or a built-in radio, it does boast Bluetooth capability. That means anyone with a digital streaming subscription can play music or stream live radio wirelessly – so you may not miss having the variety of playback options that some all-in-one record players offer.

Another great feature of this record player is the ability to digitize your vinyl collection. The player outputs MP3 files directly onto a USB drive, so you don’t need even to attach a computer to record music.

This is a solid record player for those who primarily rely on digital music, but also want the versatility to play through their vinyl collection. However, given that it only plays 33 and 45-rpm records and doesn’t play other analog audio formats, the player may become simply a wireless speaker system (albeit a stylish one) once your vinyl collection is digitized.

PROS:
  • Enables wireless playing of digital music via Bluetooth
  • High-quality, 30-watt stereo speakers
  • Easy digitizing of records to MP3’s on a USB

CONS:
  • Higher cost segment
  • Not suitable for 78-rpm records
  • Only plays records and digital music

Features
  • Turntable plays 33, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • Hi-fi sound
  • Radio and built-in CD player
  • Beautiful vintage mahogany frame
  • Vinyl recording to MP3s
  • Remote control

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

The Electrohome Wellington is an elegant and beautifully made record player designed with great audio in mind.

The turntable handles any standard record size or vinyl spin speed and uses sapphire needle tips that produce a warm tone without damaging your delicate vinyls.

The built-in speakers are one of the main assets of this player. The dual, full dynamic range speakers produce terrific bass for their size and a warm treble range. They are assisted by the echo from the mahogany wood frame, which was designed with acoustic performance in mind. The frame also makes this piece more than just a record player – it’s a beautiful addition to your home.

The player also includes a CD player and analog radio, as well as an auxiliary cable input to enable playing digital music. Plus, it comes with recording functionality so that you can digitize your vinyl collection for posterity – simply plug in a USB flash drive and press record.

This is one of the most stunningly beautiful record players on the market, and the exterior and acoustics complement each other well.

PROS:
  • Beautiful mahogany wood exterior
  • Great built-in speakers and acoustics
  • Vinyl recording to USB

CONS:
  • No cassette player
  • Not Bluetooth compatible
  • Higher price segment

Features
  • Turntable plays 33 1/3, 45, and 78-rpm records
  • Replaceable needle
  • Built-in speakers
  • RCA out and aux in jacks
  • Wooden suitcase design with PU leather wrapping
  • Recording via USB connection to computer

OVERALL RATING: 8.0 out of 10

For those looking for an inexpensive option for playing and recording vinyl records, the Musitrend turntable is a great choice.

The turntable can play any records in your collection and can turn at all three standard speeds. The ceramic stylus is gentle on your records and is tipped with a diamond needle. Better yet, the turntable comes with a spare diamond needle.

Musitrend sells this as a portable “suitcase” design, and while it is lightweight it does better as a showpiece than something you’d want to carry around frequently. That’s because it is beautifully crafted and finished wood that adds a vintage touch of style to your home without being overbearing.

Although the design is fabulous, it sacrifices on some of the features offered by other turntables. There are 3-watt built-in speakers that may not sound as good as you wish. So you might want to invest in a pair of wired speakers to connect to the player to get the most out of the turntable.

It also doesn’t have a CD or cassette player or radio. It does sport an auxiliary input and an input to connect a computer via USB, though. The latter enables recording functionality, which can be make or break for anyone thinking of digitizing their vinyl collection.

At this price point, it’s hard to say anything bad about the Musitrend turntable. While the built-in sound quality is not as good as it might be, the turntable itself is high-quality, and investing in a quality pair of speakers for playback will still be cheaper than buying a higher end turntable. Importantly, this inexpensive player also offers recording capabilities.

PROS:
  • Pretty wooden exterior
  • Versatile turntable with replaceable diamond needle
  • Records vinyls to MP3s via connection to a computer
  • Inexpensive compared to other items

CONS:
  • Built-in speakers are small, and the sounding is not great
  • No CD or cassette player or radio

Buying Guide

There are a number of features that are important to consider when looking at buying a new all-in-one record player. We’ll break down the main ones to look for here.

Turntable

главная_1Vinyl records come in a couple different size standards – 7, 10, and 12 inches – and intended playback speeds – 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm. Depending on how far back your record collection stretches, you may have a mix of all of these different sizes. Therefore, it’s important to check whether the record player you’re interested in can play the sizes you have in your collection.

The needle that a turntable comes with doesn’t make a huge difference in sound quality, but it can impact cost and durability. Sapphire needles are relatively cheap but need to be replaced roughly every 50-100 hours of use. Diamond needles, on the other hand, last hundreds of hours but are more expensive to replace.

Speakers

speakers_2_1Almost all all-in-one record players come with speakers, either built into their frame or connected externally. However, the quality of these speakers varies enormously. Be sure to account for whether you’ll need to invest in a better set of speakers for your record player when looking at prices, and also check what type of input the record player has for connecting external speakers. While most record players use a standard RCA jack, some use alternative inputs, and a few record players do not have any functionality for connecting an additional set of speakers.

Other Media

Does your record player also need to play CDs or cassettes? Or do you want a radio built in? Not all record players offer these features, and even those that do have cassette players or radios frequently do not accept high tape cassettes or leave out the AM tuner.

Bluetooth

bluetooth_2In addition, the ability to play digital music via Bluetooth is extremely important to many users. It can be critical to those used to digital audio, since wireless speakers are readily available these days – often for cheaper than an all-in-one record player.

Recording

One of the best features that many modern all-in-one record players offer is the ability to record your vinyl collection into digital MP3 files. This won’t damage your record collection, but it will back it up and allow you to listen to it on the go. If this feature is important to you, be sure to check whether the MP3 files are recorded directly to a USB flash drive plugged into the record player, or whether you’ll need to plug a computer into the player. In addition, some high-end record players are also capable of recording your vinyls straight to CDs or recording your CDs, cassettes, and even radio recordings into digital files.

Conclusion

An all-in-one record player is a great choice for dusting off your old vinyl collection and bringing together music from all the different media formats that have come and gone over the past several decades. These versatile players offer the best of both digital and analog audio worlds, and often blur the line between the two by recording old records to digital MP3s or wirelessly connecting to your smartphone to play new tunes out of a vintage speaker. Many of the vintage designs look so good that you may want one even if you don’t have records to play!

TEAC's LPR550-USB Record Player - Editor's Choice

The Teac LPR550 Record Player is an all-in-one record player that stands up to its price tag in every way. The turntable is designed to cover your entire record collection. The cartridge is nice in that it automatically lifts into its holder at the end of a record, so there’s no annoying vamping on the edge of the record when your album finishes. The player also includes a CD player, cassette player, radio, and auxiliary cord input, so that it’s a one-stop shop for all your audio playback needs. The radio is digital, which makes navigation easy and allows you to store up to 9 presets. The recording functionality is also spectacular, since you can record vinyls and cassettes to CDs, or record any input medium – including the radio – to MP3s on your computer. Reviewers also note that the speaker quality is surprisingly good given the small size of the player, particular in its bass amplitude. Overall, Teac’s LPR550-USB is an outstanding all-in-one record player, and our pick for the best all-around option on the market today.
