Do these products have value as collectibles?

AR turntables are highly collectible. The products have seen a resurgence in value as vinyl records have become widely adopted by audiophiles for their superior sound quality. These same audiophiles want to enjoy their collector-quality records with original playback devices. Doing so allows them to enjoy the most authentic listening experience possible. And, this resurgence in consumer interest has lent itself extremely well to the collectibility of these rare and immensely valuable pieces of hardware and devices. With these turntables and turntable parts, you will have access to a one of a kind audio experience that is valued by music enthusiasts the world over.

How do turntables differ from traditional music playback devices?

AR Turntables allow you to enjoy vinyl records. With contemporary options, you're likely to be listening to MP3s, which are encoded and heavily altered audio files. Vinyl records are legacy playback products, and they provide much clearer and more authentic sound signatures. AR Turntables allow you to enjoy a studio-quality sound and faithful representations of your favorite artist's original vision by playing vinyl records.
