Review: Pyle PTR8UBTBK Bluetooth Turntable System!

Written by Ben W

I love vinyl since the first day I discovered an old record player at my grandparents attic. Now, I own over a dozen record players and I am always looking for gems like albums of vintage models.

Pro’s: On of the more fresh and sleek designed “old days – look” record players. Aside from its trendy design the system is very easy to use. Its has both USB and SD-jacks, and is easily compatible with devices such as Android, iPhone, iPad, Tablets, Smartphones, u name it.

Con’s: When the record is done playing, the needle stops on the end of the record and does not return automatically to the cradle. You will have to do this manually. In spite of its great compatibility with modern devices, is does not have a CD-player.

Awesome & Sleek Pyle PTR8UBTBK Bluetooth Turntable System!
