TURNTABLES: VINTAGE AFFORDIBILITY

vintageIn addition to new turntables, The Record Exchange always has on hand a well-curated collection of vintage turntables and stereo equipment.

Ranging in price from approximately $100-$300, vintage may be the way to go if you’re looking for quality at a great price. We don’t just bring anything in to sell, and the pieces we do are cleaned and inspected by a professional audio repair company before they hit the floor.
