What to Consider When Choosing a Record Player Table

There are three main factors to consider. I know they’re probably obvious, but I’m going to write about them anyway. Don’t worry, I’ll be brief. And you can always skip this section.

Design

Design is probably the most important for most of us, but it obviously depends on your personal taste and the overall look of your home. What looks great to me in my home, might look hideous to you in yours. For this reason, I did not take the look of each record player stand into account at all when compiling this list, but made sure to include a photo to give you an idea of the design. I’ve included links to the Amazon pages for each unit, where you’ll find additional photos.

Size and Weight

The second most important factor. Do you want a small unit you can move to different locations or a larger one that can hold many other things in addition to your turntable and your record collection? Basically, you want something large enough to hold everything you plan on putting on it.

Versatility

You may just want a table to hold your record player or you maybe you want one with adjustable shelves or on that gives you the ability to mix and match various components (shelving units, cupboards, etc.).
