Why vinyl records?

Vinyl records still inspire many music lovers today. The warm sound, the nostalgic crackle and the unique feel make vinyl a timeless medium and real collector's items.

What do you need for a record player?

A record player alone is not enough to enjoy the full vinyl experience. To get the most out of your music collection, you need the right accessories. From cables to interfaces to monitors and headphones - here you'll find out what you need to enjoy your vinyl to the fullest. We'll also explain why a USB port can be beneficial for digitizing your treasures.

  • Cable
    • RCA cable: Connects the turntable to an audio system or amplifier.
    • Ground Cable: Reduces hum and noise by grounding the turntable.
  • Audio interface

    • An audio interface is useful if you want to connect your record player to a computer and digitize vinyl.
    • Converts the analog signal from the record into a digital format.
  • Listening monitors
    • For an authentic listening experience in the room.
  • headphones
    • Ideal if you want to enjoy privately or are in an environment where volume should be limited.
  • USB for digitizing
    • A turntable with a USB port allows you to connect directly to a computer.
    • Advantageous if you want to transfer your vinyl collection to digital formats.
    • If the digitization function is sufficient, you could do without a separate audio interface.
These components not only make it possible to play records, but also open up possibilities for integration into modern audio setups and for archiving your vinyl collection in digital form.
