Inside The Grooves

For the music lover

RCA Turntable, with the tone arm positioned in the middle of the empty record platter.
In order to listen to vinyl records, you must first need a turntable to play the record. Turntables range in price points starting for as low as $50 and can cost as much as $5,000 dollars. Keep in mind you get what you pay for! So, the more you spend, the higher sound quality you will receive.

The Needle, found at the end of the tone arm, runs along the “grooves” of a record, which is then amplified through speakers, giving the listener music.

Record stores are a great place to stock up on your collection. While there aren’t many large corporate stores around these days, there are a ton of locally owned stores still left and just starting! It’s always a great idea to buy some vinyl, and support local business at the same time! Happy hunting!
