Everyone’s been saying it for awhile now: vinyl records are “back.” But the truth is, vinyl never left and has actually been one of the rare pieces of old technology that can go toe-to-toe with its successors of the modern era.
Whether you want to say vinyl is benefiting from a true “resurgence,” or just that it’s been lying dormant for a while as music fans have become a bit disenchanted with the intangible quality of streaming music and compressed MP3’s, there’s no question that people of all ages are rediscovering vinyl as a medium.
Devoted to Vinyl is dedicated to bringing those that are beginners, as well as those that consider themselves longtime vinyl veterans, in-depth reviews of turntables and records. But that’s not all, we’ll also provide you with information about setting up your turntable, what parts or accessories are vital (and which ones are junk), where you should buy your table and record collection (and who to avoid), and how much you should spend to get quality-sounding music coming out of your speakers without feeling like you’ve fallen down the money rabbit hole.
Devoted to Vinyl will also bring you up-to-date news on everything that’s happening within the vinyl record industry, as well. Be it the latest 180-gram re-issue or the always popular (and annual) Record Store Day, we’ll have it covered for you.
So if you’re brand new to the world of records—if you’re someone looking to buy their first or second turntable or even someone that wants to know and understand why vinyl records seem to “sound better”—this is the perfect website for you.
And if you’re someone that either loved vinyl growing up (but walked away from the medium once technology advanced), or someone that has always appreciated the sound of a needle hitting the groove of a spinning record, we think you’ll get just as much out of this website as anyone else.
Thanks for visiting.
*Note*: The “ratings” column in our interactive tables are based on average customer reviews on Amazon.com. We try to round down in our reviews in an effort to be fair. Meaning, a “3.7 out of 5” rating on Amazon.com for a turntable will equate to three, not four, stars on Devoted to Vinyl.
