Record player to my husband

My husband’s birthday is around the corner and I’m still not sure what to buy to surprise him.

He has everything, what he could wish for. Of course I asked him about it, but he said that he needs nothing, but that’s not an acceptable alternative. Years ago I always knew what he wanted, but now we already have those things and I’m nearly out of ideas.


I thought about for several days and the best answer I could come up with was to buy him some retro style product, which could remind him to our childhood. I know he really loves music, so I started my research in this topic. I found some amazing music instrument which is made in some kind of futuristic stlye, back in the ‘80s. But that’s not what he could satisfied with (but maybe he would buy one from that collection – for me).

Thanks to the stars, two days ago I finally found the perfect gift for him: a turntable. A lot of different type is released nowadays, with new mechanism, but with the same look as those products got 30 years ago. They are not even as hardly affordable as they were back in our time.

I found an interesting site – “” with detailed record player reviews, which helped me to minimize the number of products I have to choose from. Unfortunately, I still have some doubt about which could be the best turntable to my husband. I asked some people on a forum, but they gave me very different feedbacks.

This is why I want to ask you about the same topic. What do you think which is the most reliable manufacturer: Crosley, Technics or Stanton?

The money doesn’t really count, but the quality does. I really want to order a good and stylish product to my husband.

Thank you for your advice in advance!
