Vinyl. Never has one musical word conjured so much admiration. So much nostalgia. So much mystique.

We live in an age when musical formats have come and gone. Popular music consumption has been reduced to Spotify Playlists and YouTube clips.

Yet despite this change in musical culture, vinyl has stood the test of time as the format of choice for true music fans. Vinyl's enduring popularity is the very reason why Record Store Day is now an annual event.

See our special turntable bundles here with everything you need to get started!

Is Vinyl Better Than CD or MP3?

Vinyl offers greater dynamic range than CD and almost all common digital formats. As an analogue medium, vinyl can recreate more detail, add more warmth, and give you a more immersive listening experience.

Listening to music with a turntable also creates an occasion. As you unfold your album sleeve, peruse its bespoke artwork, load your turntable, drop the needle, and sit back to listen, you create your very own musical event. Your own ritual.

Listening to vinyl certainly isn't as convenient as casually pressing 'play' on your smartphone. But the real question you should ask yourself is: do I value the music I'm listening to? If the answer to that question is 'yes', then you owe it to yourself to commit to your music. To give the time to really appreciate your albums.

If you commit to the complete experience of vinyl, you'll hear your tracks as you've never heard them before. Join the revolution and see what you've been missing!

Get into Vinyl

We want to encourage as many people as possible to discover the joys of listening to music on vinyl. That's why we've put together these fantastic bundles to get you started.
