Music tames the savage beast, or even a person who has had a rotten day at work only to be stuck for hours in a peak-hour gridlocked traffic jam. When you finally get home, all you can think of is putting on some great music and sitting down with a cold beer or something a little stronger. By the time the first tune has finished, you finally start to feel human again.
Digital technology has made it easier for us to access our favorite music. Gone are the days when we’d go to the music store and spend hours flipping through the piles of vinyl albums. Later, we’d do the same with CD’s. These days we can access any music we want through the world wide web, compile our favorite playlists and take them with us anywhere.
While there is no doubt that the digital era means we can enjoy crisp, clear sounds, traditionalists still love the sounds from those old records. The trouble is, those huge sound systems that used to grace half a wall in the family room are no longer in production. Fortunately, smaller versions are still being made so you can continue to enjoy the vinyl LP’s you have collecting dust. The best portable turntable will bring those old records back to life and have you singing again.
