Many of us have family record collections of records, but nowhere to play them. Old record players, if they have been used over many years, can actually damage records, so it is important, if you wish to keep your collection in good order, to use a record player that is both high quality, and in full working order (especially the stylus!). The trouble is, record players available today are often expensive, require connection to a hi-fi system, or simply look a bit naff! When we discovered the Steepletone range of record players, we knew we had found something really worthwhile having - the Steepletone Stackable range of record players are based on original 1960s designs, but use high-quality components such as a diamond stylus (superior to saphire or metal needles). If you were born in the 1950s, 60s ro 70s, it is very likely that you would have had a player similar to these at home. What's more, our Steepletone turntables not only look right, but they also come with everything you need - just plug it in and it will play your records through its own speakers built into the front - just like the sixties originals. Our record players also include an MW/FM radio. Steepletone is a British company that has been making high-quality audio equipment for 35 years, so you know you are buying a reliable product from a reputable company.
