You may have heard that when it comes to purchasing items, there will be some items that you can get dirt cheap but they may not last long while there are also some that you can purchase for a hefty amount of money but you know that you can use them for a long period of time.
Do you think that this applies to all items that you can purchase?
This may not always be the case but you have to remember that when it comes to record players, the price range of the record players that you are going to purchase will matter a lot.
Of course, there are still other factors that you ought to consider when you are purchasing the right record player aside from the price such as the brand, the model and the type of records that the record player can play.
You would not want to purchase a record player that will not play the records that you currently have, right because you know that you will only be wasting money this way. At the same time, you have to consider the design of the record player as well especially if you plan on making the record player functional and decorative at the same time.

Price Range of a Turntable Affects the Quality:
Let us now go back to the price range as other factors have already been discussed. It has been mentioned earlier that the price of the record player that you are going to purchase may affect the type of quality that you can get.
Record players can actually be separated depending on the price range. Let us discuss each price range in detail.
1. Below $100
You will be surprised to know that there are some turntables that are being sold for more or less than $100. You can consider these turntables very cheap but how sure are you that they are worth it? If you are planning to purchase a record player that you will not use often and you would only want to have for occasional playing and to add to the design of your home, this may be your best bet.
You have to remember that since this is a low end range of record players, the sound may not be as good as you would want it to be. Unlike other turntables that may be priced higher, it will be hard to find parts that will allow you to upgrade your record player as well.
2. $300 – $500
This is usually considered to be the price range for beginner’s record player. If you would compare the sound quality of this to those that are about $100 or lower, you will definitely hear a difference. When it comes to the parts, you know that most parts are upgradeable and finding upgrades will not be too hard as well.
You have to remember that although there are a lot of record players that are being advertised as the best, there will be some brands and models that will always be considered to be the best choices for this price range. You can simply choose one and personalize and customize it depending on the things that you are searching for in a turntable.
Of course if there are some cheap turntables that are available, there are also highly expensive turntables that are well beyond the $500 price range.
You have to remember that if you have always loved listening to old records or you would like to make sure that you will have a turntable too that will allow you to mix songs and transfer it to your very own computer or gadget, record players that are in the $500 range will truly help you out.
Design wise, you know that exotic looking record players will look amazing inside your house. At the same time, you also know that the sound that you will hear is truly amazing. Of course the sound quality may still be different from one record player to another.
Now that you already know the differences in price range, do you think that you will be able to find the right record player for you?
