15 Beautifully Designed Turntables

These handsome record players are built to please the ears *and* the eyes. Ready to find your room's new conversation piece?

If you think the best way to listen to music on your commute is with earbuds and an iPhone, we won't argue with you. But if you think the best way to listen to music at home is the same, we think it's time for an intervention. A vinyl intervention.

We would also like to dispel any rumors that making the switch to vinyl will be expensive—sure, a turntable is an investment, but we were able to find options for every budget. You'll finally be able to make use of those records you've been collecting from Goodwill sans turntable for the past few years—or maybe that's just us.
