Speaking of old-fashioned devices making a comeback, there is a turntable on today’s market which is new but brings the spirit of its predecessors back to life. This Pyle Audio product looks old-fashioned but is packed with new technology. It is perfect for people who look for a more vintage appearance and appreciate a great audio quality.
Features That Make It Stand Out
This turntable combines the best of both worlds. It has the looks and sound quality of the classic old players along with modern technologies such as Bluetooth options and tons of other features.
You will be hearing its crisp sound through the built-in speakers which perform surprisingly well for their size. The rpm (rounds per minute) it supports are 33 ⅓, 45 and unlike other models, it also goes up to 78rpm. It can even record from these rpms onto your thumb drive or SD card (via the USB port). You can also record/play through the Bluetooth connectivity. If you got a drive from which you want to play, all you need to do is simply plug it into the Pyle USB port. Got a tablet or a smartphone? No problem. Turn your Bluetooth on, find the player there and connect – that is all you need to do to play music from your device.
In case you don’t like the speakers (which we doubt it will happen) you can connect this turntable to an audio system of your preference via the stereo RCA line out. There is also a ⅛ inch headphone output if you want to enjoy a more private listening experience.
Even though it falls behind in the design category (since it only has one design and one color) it compensates by being extremely durable and feature-packed. Having this turntable, you can record your vinyl collection into MP3s and store them digitally without losing any quality during the process. Also, once again, the speakers will really surprise you with their quality, especially due to their small size.
Why Having Bluetooth On Your Turntable Is Great
By having a built-in Bluetooth option, you can stream music wirelessly to any device which also has Bluetooth. It works with all operating systems and types of devices. The version of this Bluetooth is 3.0 which is up to date with the newest tech trends. The first time you discover this device it will have the “ClassicAudio” name and “0000” for the password. You could change these if you want to, but we recommend sticking to those details, as they are easy to access and remember. One more amazing feature of its Bluetooth module is that is has a range of up to 30 feet.
