Before modern-day smartphone apps became our source of music, we millennials were reliant on CDs for our songs. The generation before us had cassette tapes, and if you dial back even further to the good ol’ days, vinyl record players were all the rage.
Call it retro, vintage, or hip, but yes, these vinyl records are coming back in style. People would dig up their old collection, while others would raid vintage shops in search of as many rare record albums that they could get. More often than not, these large discs come with a hefty price tag, but the true item that costs an arm and a leg? The vinyl record player.
Not to worry. For those who want to channel that vintage vibe (and look cute doing it), we found an affordable alternative. And yes, it comes from the online store We Got Melody.
Offering what they claim is the “cheapest retro vinyl record player”, We Got Melody’s players are a blast from the past… but with a twist. You see, these are not the chunky ones that your parents are familiar with — rather, they’re Bluetooth speakers that look like the retro record players!
Features and Specs
Bringing together the classic elements of the 50s with a touch of modern Nordic aesthetic, these speakers play music via Bluetooth, AUX cord, or TF memory card. It’s made of both plastic and aluminum alloy and comes with 5-watt amplifiers for improved sound. This USB-rechargeable record player comes in three adorable pastel colors: pink, white, or mint green.
Just like any record player, the swing arm needs to be turned to the left (about 35 degrees). Once you hear a click, it’s ready to go. To turn it off, just turn the arm in reverse. The vinyl record player speaker comes with knobs to adjust the playback mode, fix the volume, and even to change songs.
Currently, these retro vinyl record player speakers come at an introductory price of PHP 1,499 each. Each speaker comes with 1 USB cable for charging, 1 AUX cable to connect your device, and a manual. For orders and inquiries, you can message them over on Instagram.
