What finishing touches do you put to your home? Before you buy a place, you always think about the little pieces that would make your style complete. And a record player is definitely one of the things people love.
In a recent survey of first time buyers, retro gadgets like a teasmade, cassette player and record player were the top choices for the things they wanted to buy for their house.
The retro style is very much in demand and the idea of retro telephones sitting alongside this retro tech is probably welcome as well.
It's all about making a house a home, and quite often we think back to the technology our parents and grandparents had in their homes when we're thinking about what we want in our own. Having a cup of tea made by your bed, so you can wake up to a cup of tea is a popular choice. The rise and rise of cassette players in the last year, and artists releasing new albums straight onto tape.
The record player that brings it all together is most popular, though. Being able to dig out old vinyl records, browsing record shops again and listening to the old sound of the vinyl turntable is a fashionable pursuit.
Yet for music fans, it's as much about having a stereo system that works for all of your music collection. This is still the digital age, after all. So the GPO record players that feature USB ports, cassette players, CD decks, radios and audio jacks for other devices, along with built in speakers are ideal.
It means music lovers can indulge in their affection for nostalgia, choose a record player that looks retro but use it across music platforms.
The most popular record players to have in the home might look like they're from a distant past, but the ones that music fans love are the record players that cater for every music taste, whether the music is on vinyl, tape, smartphone or MP3.
