The 5-point vinyl guide

Vinyl cleaning kit

1. Avoid portable turntables, especially in the shape of a suitcase. There are several brands with these models, but not only is the audio quality poor, but you can also damage your vinyl records due to bad needles with a lot of pressure on the disc.

2. The turntable is only part of the equation. Depending on the budget and quality requirement, invest in a good amplifier and speakers to maximize the potential of each element. Quality will vary depending on the performance of each component.

3. The quality of the cartridge / needle, as well as the head module, will have a major impact on the quality of music reproduction on vinyl. At all times, on good turntables, you can change these components and customize the sound signature.

4. Vinyl records, like the cartridge “needle”, are components subject to wear and degradation. It is important to calibrate the turntable well before using it to obtain the best results and, periodically, you must change the cartridges.

5. Store your vinyl records vertically, under penalty of deformation when they are horizontal for long periods. In addition, it invests in a cleaning kit and, before each reproduction, tries to remove dust and static electricity.

Before you go, discover the best Bluetooth speakers with excellent options from Marshall and other brands. If you prefer, check out the selection of PC speakers that are worthwhile, with some ideal options for listening to music on vinyl.
