A beneficial turntable accessory for any vinyl enthusiast, a record weight adds an extra layer of performance to any vinyl collection. With multiple benefits including reduced vibration and record speed stabilization, your loved one will appreciate the gift of improved music playback.
Perfect vinyl playback can be an intricate experience. Part of that, is the meticulous nature of record maintenance. Many of us record enthusiasts obsess over record handling, storage, and cleaning. It’s good to have some tools at our disposal to properly clean and maintain our records and equipment for that perfect sound.
Everything you need to maximize the playback of your vinyl records. Gift Dad an upgraded vinyl listening experience with the turntable platter he wishes he had, paired with the vinyl and stylus cleaning kit.
Both stylish and convenient, this is a great option for the vinyl lover. Whether they need more record storage at home or do lots of hauls at used record shops, this makes for the perfect accessory. And it’s customizable!
We mentioned meticulous cleaning, right? Imagine a car wash for records. It can be surprising how much dirt and dust build up within the fine grooves of a record. You can help to restore some great sound to older records with a proper wash that goes beyond just removing surface dust.
Another accessory that an avid vinyl collector can never have enough of is plastic record sleeves. Most new records purchased come with cheap paper sleeves that don’t preserve records well over time. A pack of new sleeves is always handy to have around to replace brand new paper record sleeves, or to protect any newly acquired vintage records that may not have one all together. Plus, let’s be honest…spending the night in switching vinyl records to better quality protective sleeves is a satisfying chore for vinyl lovers!
Vinyl of the Month Club
It’s the gift that keeps on giving all year round. A vinyl club subscription is a great option to explore for the passionate record collector. You can choose an option that is curated to their musical taste or opt for random albums to be sent each month. There are numerous options out there including Vinyl Me Please, or VNYL.
Any vinyl enthusiast knows the album artwork is just as sacred as the vinyl itself. Gift the record collector in your life the pride of giving their album cover the center-stage ambience it deserves. Show off what’s playing to guests, or take insta-worthy photos to post online and show off to other vinyl lovers. Best part? The LED lights will automatically turn off once the album is removed, so Dad can’t accidently forget to turn the switch off.
Depending on how and when they got into vinyl, their turntable might need some upgrading. You can secure your gift-giving legend status, without breaking the bank. Your giftee will also be delighted by the pure analog experience a HiFi Turntable offers.
