Music | News | Amazon Sold More Turntables Than Any Other Audio Product This Christmas

The Jensen all-in-one player is king on Amazon.

By Kieran Webber

The past couple of years have been incredible for vinyl with a complete resurgence of the ‘retro’ audio format and there are no signs of slowing down yet.

HMV claimed to be selling a turntable a minute on the run up to Christmas this year and Amazon just announced that their best selling home audio product this year was a turntable.

More popular than both a Yamaha Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver with AirPlay and the SONOS PLAY:1, a two-room music streaming starter set, the Jensen JTA-230 3-speed stereo turntable with built-in speakers was Amazon’s seasonal hit, challenging the dominance of streaming services in the home.

Priced at just over $50, the Jensen is about as entry-level as you can get, complete with USB port for digitising your records and a slot for your iPod. That said, it’s one of the only budget turntables with pitch control and tone adjustment (as well as the ability to play 78s – although you will need a different cartridge), making it more flexible than most budget brands.
