Number 1. Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase Turntable. Some would argue, and they have a strong case, that there has never been a better time to listen to music. Streaming sites and a myriad of online radio stations and other options mean you can listen to anything at any time. Whether this is good for the writers and musicians is another argument, of course, as they are often not paid for their performance but a completely different matter. But sometimes we are sure that some of us just long for the time when we can throw on a piece of vinyl and remember what it used to be like. If ever there was a turntable that even by its appearance brought back those days it is this, American Graffiti and Happy Days all rolled into one little package
Weight: 2.69 Pounds
Motor Type: AC Motor
Number 2. Victrola Vintage 3-Speed. This is a stylishly designed player. Made to look retro but with a briefcase feel to it, rather than the usual suitcase idea. The case is made from hard plastic and is very nicely designed with controls located conveniently. It plays 33, 45 and 78 speeds, and the setup and operation are easy. And has two stereo front-facing speakers but if you prefer you can hook it up to your home stereo through the RCA jacks on the control panel. It is supplied with a stylus needle, but a spare is also included. On the top are controls for the tonearm and its raise lever, the turntable auto stop and turntable speed the power on/off and volume control.
Weight: 5.46 Pounds
Motor Type: DC Motor
Voltage: 9 Volts
Number 3. Audio-Technica AT-LP60. The LP60 is a fully automatic belt-drive turntable playing at 33.3 and 45rpm, and it has an interesting feature to discuss which we will come back to. Some of the cheaper turntables have a problem with low quality in the build. We can understand that. Companies have to make a profit, and they cut as many corners as possible to achieve this. But sometimes they cut one too many. No such problem with this turntable. It is well-engineered and built and has a design that is appealing. Audio-Technica is a Japanese audio electrical company who were formed in the 60s and now have a US subsidiary.

Weight: 5.3 Pounds
Number 4. Numark PT01 Touring. This is a remarkable little turntable. Designed to look like something from the 50s or 60s, it has so many features packed into it, that it never ceases to surprise. Firstly it is a travel record player and is built into a suitcase-style unit. Inside this unit are not only the turntable itself but a built-in amp and stereo speakers. There is even a battery-driven function that takes a Lithium-ion battery. Battery life is about four hours. It has a belt-driven turntable and weighs just six pounds so is easily transportable.

Number 5. Audio-Technica AT-LP60X-BK Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable. Audio-Technica has a long tradition of building quality music systems. They are a Japanese company originally set up in the 60s but now have a US subsidiary. This model is an upgraded version of their previously issued and popular LP60. The newer LP60X comes with a few added features and designs. It is a fully automatic belt-driven turntable that operates on 33 and 45 rpm. It has been well made with good materials. The platter is made from diecast aluminum and is designed to be anti-resonance. The tonearm and head are made with a slightly different design to enhance tracking and reduce the resonance. And it has a dual magnet cartridge with a diamond stylus that is replaceable.
