Questions to ask when buying a record player.

1. What type of player do you want? Do you want a record player because you have a wide collection of vinyl records or, do you want to buy a record player so that you spin records like a club DJ? The records players used by DJs are totally different from the players used for listening to music.

2. Estimate your budget. How much do you have to spend? Once you know how much you're willing to spend, you can check out the different types of record players available. You can buy one for as little as $50 or you can spend over $1000 depending on what you're looking for.

3. Do you want a stackable player or a manual player? If you want to listen to music for leisure, and wish to stack various records on the spindle for consecutive play then you should buy a stackable player. However, if you want to play only one or two songs from each record by picking them separately, then it is a manual record player you're looking for.

4. What speed of player do you need? The most common speed found is 33 to 45 RPM i.e. revolution per minute. If you have really old records then they are played on 78 RPM and the very old ones are played on 16 RPM. You should know which speeds your vinyl collection will accommodate.

5. What style or Decor do you want? Record players come in a variety of decorative styles. You can buy a vintage looking player or pick out a high tech player. You should make sure that the player you buy goes with the d├ęcor of your home.
