Review: The Anders Nicholson 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 This Oak Anders Nicholson record player has some body. The design is retro an will for sure bring atmosphere into the room it is placed in. Next to this, it is one of the lower priced models. For just $100 you get yourself a decent turntable.

Con’s With the low price there has been some cutting on the quality. Due to this the sound is not superb. If you are looking for durability you might consider some other model.

The Oak Anders Nicholson System Has Brought Peace In Our Lives!

Introduction to the World of vinyl

I have been looking around since a long time to find a home stereo to play some of my LP records. However, I was unable to get the one that is affordable and provides several features. One day while searching online, I came across the Oak Anders Nicholson System. I found it to be a good priced product in comparison to the other home stereos. After reading its amazing reviews, I placed an order instantly on Amazon. The product arrived quickly and was in great condition. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

It is a great home stereo! Whether you want to play your old LPs, CDs, or cassettes, this unit plays them all! It doesn’t matter if you are listening to radio or your favorite CD, as the player will fill your room with terrific sound. The instruction manual that is provided with the home stereo is quite helpful for those who are using it for the first time. Just follow the instructions that are provided and you will be able to set it up easily.

I am very happy with its sound quality and I purely enjoy the time when I am listening to music on this wonderful unit.

Here is an issue that was faced by a customer:

One of the customers had faced a minor issue while playing their records. The records kept skipping needlessly. The reason for it was that the arm was heavier than the head. As most of the vinyls are warped, the head used to slip off the record often as it was light in weight.

However, the customer taped a nickel to the head so that it gets a bit heavy. This trick worked amazingly well and the records were sounding terrific. It is not a major issue and was resolved wonderfully by the customer.

Customer Reviews and Scores:

Over 200 customers have purchased the record player through Amazon. Among them the overwhelming majority is positive.

An issue faced by a customer was that the player did not have a USB. However, I would like to mention here that the unit has to be plugged in through the headphone jack and plays through the stereo. You cannot record through it. So, if you are looking for a player that has a USB then you should check the latest versions of the Oak Systems.


The Oak Anders Nicholson System is available on Amazon in the $$ price range only. Check the actual price on here. By far, it is one of the best priced players that I have come across! Moreover, to receive so many unique features at such a price is highly recommendable. The sound quality of the unit is amazing and it is definitely worth investing in one! For those who enjoy listening to old songs and are obsessed with it, must purchase the unit right away.

Conclusion: Yes I would buy this turntable for this price

All in all, it is one the finest products that I have added to my collection. I just enjoy relaxing on my couch while hearing the beautiful songs. And, not to forget, my children are enjoying the records that I previously had not been able to play.

The Oak System has changed the way we used to spend our holidays. Our days have become much more musical and the credit for it goes to the Oak Anders Nicholson System. Even though it requires a bit of effort to listen to the songs as the arm lifter lever has to be manually managed but I certainly enjoy the beautiful music that it provides. It brings in a lot of peace and relaxation to my body and soul. I will definitely recommend the unit to my extended family and friends.
