Turntables: Buying Guide

If you like playing records, then buying a good quality turntable for it is a must option. This article will tell you what to look for and what factors you should consider before buying the right turntable for playing records.

Cartridge alignment
The most important factor to be considered for buying a turntable is the cartridge alignment. Cartridge turntables alignment is the technology that helps the turntable to read the disc correctly. A turntable that has a P mount arm can use any P mount cartridge. To check the quality of alignment and to check the condition of a used stylus, one would need to make a little research.

Verification of logo
One good way to check it is through the logo. Like all CD players carry same logo, in the same way P mount turntables also share a common logo that can be seen near the tone arm of the table. You can also ask the seller to show you the T4P on the table to ensure the table is P mount.

Support for a specific type of music
Another factor, on which the choice of a CD players turntables depends, is the type of music you like to listen. This includes varieties that support digital, tape, normal, or serious. Every record turntable does not have the power to support all kinds of music and CDs. Thus, when you select one, keep in mind the kind of songs and music that you hear more.

Author's advice
It is better to avoid the turntables that are old pressed metal record changers. This is because such turntables belong to the lower end Garrard turntables that were present in earlier record players and consoles.

Electronic turntables
It is also better to avoid audio turntables made of plastic as they do not have a long life and neither do they provide good sound quality.

No replacement needed
The direct drive turntables are also a good choice as they are heavier, reliable, allow self-speed adjusting, does not need belt replacements, and reach a faster speed in less time.

Final word
Remember to always check the quality of equipments before buying a turntable and always select the type that matches your song collection and taste, the most.
