Record player accessories: stands and storage (Part 1)

What do you need to fully enjoy your record player and listen to vinyl as they were intended? You can’t enjoy them without a record, that’s obvious.

But, what else do you need? In this series I want to dive deeper into all the accessories needed for vinyl records. You need storage space for your records and turntable.

You need cleaners, needles, speakers, possibly an amplifier and much more. I want to break it down in different posts. Let start with stands and storage.

Record player stands can be very simple or amazing. You can put your record player on a plastic crate and use that for a stand, but would you be doing it justice?

It’s supposed to be classy, stylish and timeless. Alternatively, you could purchase or make a record player stand or piece of furniture used specifically for that.

These stands often come with dual or multi-purposes. They often contain storage space for records, record players and some times even speakers.

There aren’t critical to your listening experience, just something to keep in mind when purchasing your equipment. After all, you want to take care of your audio equipment so that it lasts and you can enjoy it for a very long time.
