Best Record Player For Teenager

#1. Victrola Suitcase Record Player

Here is an a great beginner record player that would be suitable for anyone just getting into vinyl.

Victrola is a name in the record playing industry that goes back over a 100 years.

Victrola has made a perfect all-in-one portable record player with built-in speakers.  Everything you need to play records right out of the box.  This comes in over 30 different styles to fit your personality.

What I like:

  • Small and portable, perfect for bedroom or dorm-room.  Take it anywhere!
  • Speakers built-in, you can start playing immediately
  • Control, volume and speed and auto stop
  • Color options – choose a style that fits you
  • Stream music and play out of the records speakers
  • The Price is perfect!

What I don’t like:

  • This might not be loud enough for some people or even full of bass.  But there are solutions, this unit has the ability to connect to larger speakers if you desire.

#2. Wockoder Record Player

This record player by Wockoder sounds great for its size and its portable if you want to move it from around.  For a young teenager, this is another great option for several reasons.  It has the speakers, the amp the turntable all in one with a dust cover!

It’s a beautiful antique wood design that compliments the room.  It’s also not big and bulky.  The sound is an improvement from the Victrola and if the speakers aren’t doing it for you, you can plug them into a bigger system or the plug headphones in.  This record play is great for your teenager or yourself, I’m a big fan, it oozes nostalgia.

What I like:

  • High-quality sound
  • Control, speed, pitch, volume
  • Plays 3 speeds 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM
  • No Skipping thanks to the spring and rubber pads built-in
  • Vintage look with modern sound

What I don’t like:

  • I don’t like this being advertised as a Bluetooth record player, it’s only a Bluetooth input.  Other than that, this is a wonderful record player.
