Importance of a high-quality turntable when playing vinyl records

Guide to the importance of choosing a high-quality turntable when playing vinyl records

Here are a few key factors to consider when choosing a turntable:

  1. Stylus: A good stylus, or needle, is essential for playing records without damaging them. Look for a stylus that is well-balanced and has a low wear rate to prevent excessive wear on your records.

  2. Anti-skating adjustment: Anti-skating is the force that keeps the stylus centered in the groove of the record. A turntable with proper anti-skating adjustment will prevent the stylus from riding too hard on one side of the groove, which can cause damage and affect sound quality.

  3. Speed stability: Records should be played at a consistent speed. A turntable with speed stability will ensure that the speed stays consistent even when the turntable is bumped or moved.

  4. Build quality: A well-built turntable will provide better sound quality, stability, and longevity. Look for a turntable with a sturdy plinth, stable platter, and low noise floor to minimize vibrations and ensure the best sound quality.
