Travelling the world is always better when there’s good music to keep you company. That’s what this Victrola turntable review is all about! Even if travelling is not your cup of tea, you probably like to just sit or lay down and relax with the sounds of your favorite songs.
Let’s spice that up a little bit by adding vinyl to the picture, and say how you are a vinyl lover who’s looking for a nice turntable with a lot of history to share the love for music with. There’s not much left to imagination in this case, if you think about it, Vinyl tends to be very popular these days. That being said, I would like to share some of my knowledge on the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase Turntable. Let me tell you why this could be the best entry-level turntable that you could get. For more options, take a look at turntables under $1000.
- You can play records at 33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM on this turntable
- It can play music from other devices via Bluetooth or if they are hooked up to the Auxiliary output
- The suitcase design makes it compact for transportation and carrying
- Comes with a pair of built-in stereo speakers
- The built-in speakers are not that loud
The Victrola Vintage 3-Speed is designed as a suitcase with handles and lock. This design looks very attractive and is also very useful for transportation. The suitcase itself has a very good build quality, and you can rely on it when it comes to its impact resistance. Again, with a suitcase design like this, you are guaranteed to travel freely and have fun with listening to music on your Victrola everywhere you go. Just make sure to put it somewhere where its four, tiny feet can support it well.
Even though the suitcase design does make the travelling with your turntable easier, the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed will look good if it stays in your home or office as well. How can this not be the case, when its creators made sure to make peace with everyone and their preferences by making the model in nothing less, but 18 colours and patterns!
Really, the Vintage 3-Speed we’re talking about in this Victrola turntable review comes in a lot of colours. You might like its red, gray, pink, or brown colouring. Or maybe you’ll be more into the multicolour design. Then, some of us might go for the turquoise, while others might prefer the American flag design. There are, of course the cognac, the geo print, and the purple glitter designs that will look attractive to so many of us out there. However, if you couldn’t find the face that you prefer among the ones that I mentioned, you might have a blast with the UK flag, the retro map, the red and black, the marsala, the camo, the cobalt blue, the pink camo, or the aqua turquoise design. There really is a design for everyone, I believe.
A colourful suitcase—doesn’t that sound nice, now! However, the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed doesn’t stop there and insists on offering you even more. For instance, it offers you a nice, built-in pair of speakers so that you won’t have a single care in the world when it comes to enjoying the sounds of your vinyl. The speakers are built in the front of the turntable which means that the sound comes to you more directly. They might not be that loud, but they are loud enough when the turntable is put in a smaller room, and they do deliver a sound with a decent quality while your record plays at a speed of 33 1/3, 45, or 78 RPM.
However, this Victrola model also offers you the regular RCA and Aux ports for the times when you’ll want the commodities of external speakers or other devices that can play music. Something cool about the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed is that you can actually play music from other sources on it. Basically, you can play music from your phone, your computer, and other devices. There’s also a headphone jack, just in case you want to keep the wonderful sounds of your records a secret and disturb no one. Or, if you’re old-fashioned like myself.
The impressive part
But what’s really impressive that we have to mention in this Victrola turntable review, is this turntable’s ability to connect to Bluetooth devices. That being said, you can connect your phone, computer, or any other device. As long as said device has bluetooth. You’ll be able to listen to your vinyl once you have them paired. The Bluetooth signal will work great at a distance of up to 33 feet (10 meters). This is the standard largest distance at which most turntables will be able to maintain a bluetooth connection.
How about the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed’s tonearm, plinth, and controls? Well, for starters, all of these components on the turntable are of decent quality. The tonearm is made of metal, it’s straight, and it comes with a cue lever. The plinth is pretty durable, pretty much like the rest of the turntable. You will have to buy yourself a slip mat, if you think that’s necessary though. This Victrola doesn’t come with one. And when it comes to the controls, you will have the option to turn the power on and off, adjust the volume, and choose whether your turntable will have to turn off automatically or manually.
There is nothing bad that I could say about this state-of-the-art turntable when I take its extremely low price into account. That being said, the sounds that you’ll hear on this turntable will be quite decent. Vibration noise will be minimized, and, they will have that standard analogue tone to them. So worry less because your records will sound good when played by the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed.
Of course, the turntable also delivers in terms of impact resistance and it does well when travelling with you.
Are you someone who needs a sturdy, transportable, good quality turntable? I highly recommend you the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase one. You will have tons of fun with it, enjoy its design, and be pleased by its overall performance. Hopefully, you share my point of view about this Victrola model. Let me know if I missed something 🙂
