Top 10 Best Vintage Portable Record Players
for December 2022

If you're an audiophile, you know that vinyl records have a distinct sound that can't be replicated by CDs or MP3s. Playing vinyl records on a record player brings a whole new level to the music, making it feel more like you're listening to a concert than listening to a CD.

Vinyl records are also great to listen to at home, and if you have a vintage record player, it will bring a whole other level of charm to any room. Vintage record players come in all shapes and sizes, but most have the following features:

1. A turntable, which spins the record
2. A needle, which plays the record
3. A sound speaker, which plays the music

Vintage record players also come in a variety of styles. Some look like old-fashioned radios, while others look more like record players from the 70 s, 80 s or 90 s.

We test vintage record players for performance, including sound, speed, and ease of use. We also evaluate the design, including aesthetics, ease of use, and portability. Here are the best vintage record players to buy in 2022:
