So sit back, turn on some of your favorite tunes, and take a few moments to read our Aviator Recordable 8 in 1 review. I think you will love this turntable. In fact, I liked it so much that it was my first runner-up in our list of the best vintage record players.
Victrola was born in 1906 in Camden, NJ when first introduced to the American public by the Victor Talking Machine Company. Later they were purchased by RCA. 110 years later, Innovative Technologies acquired the trademark and revived the Victrola name. The Victrola Brand once again symbolize the same high-quality, nostalgic turntables of the past for this century’s music listeners of all ages.
This is the second product from Innovative Technology to be featured on this list, and it serves only to further strengthen the brand’s place as one of the finest manufacturers of vintage record players in the world.
The Innovative Technology Victrola 8-in-1 Bluetooth Wooden Music Center is a departure from the simplistic design of the suitcase turntable we looked at early on, but it offers the same superior sound and design quality vinyl enthusiasts have come to expect from the brand.
