TLDR: The mbeat PT-18K Bluetooth Vinyl Player combines premium vinyl playback technology with some innovative twists for a turnable fan both young and old will love.

In 2007, the recording industry only sold about 1 million vinyl albums, mostly to those last few diehard fans and collectors of the long-deposed format. Flash forward less than 15 years and things have seriously changed. The reports of vinyl’s demise were greatly exaggerated, with over 19 million vinyl records sold the first six months of 2021 alone.

Oh yeah, baby…vinyl is rejuvenated and back with a vengeance. In an age of MP3s and streaming services, it looks like the same technology that enthralled music fans for almost 100 years may be positioning itself to be with us for 100 more.

In that case, it’s time to catch up with the retro/next big thing trend and staff up with a quality player like an mbeat PT-18K Bluetooth Vinyl Player ($211.65 after code SAVE15NOV from TNW Deals).

Of course, turntables today aren’t the same as those ancient record spinners your parents and grandparents spun. The PT-18K is right at the forefront of today’s technologies, while also refining all that stuff that old-school vinyl lovers used to hate.

Fitted with a full-sized metal alloy platter, this player significantly reduces vibrations and signal disturbance. With a moving magnet cartridge guiding the needle, audiophiles get more accurate tracking and a cleaner sound for all their records. The adjustable tonearm also features anti-skating counterweights that allow the needle to glide easily over the grooves while avoiding distortion.

While those have been features of high-end turntables for years, the PT-18K also has some decidedly modern touches as well, including a built-in Bluetooth transmitter. That allows this player to sync up with any Bluetooth speakers or headphones to enjoy booming, clean, accurate sound with no wires needed. Of course, old schoolers can still hook up wired speakers or headphones as well to drink in the music.

Finally, users can also use the PT-18K to create their own digital music library. The player allows users to spin vinyl and record it directly to a PC, or format it so it’s playable on a smartphone or tablet too.

Right now, you can pick up the mbeat PT-18K Bluetooth Vinyl Player at its pre-Black Friday price of $211.65. That’s after your 15 percent off savings when you use the codeword SAVE15NOV while you make your purchase.
