1. CMC Portable Bluetooth Record Player with Speakers
The CMC Bluetooth record player has a certain vintage charm that you can’t find anymore. Sure, it’s a 3-speed record player with speakers like every other item in the list. But for true vintage lovers CMC amps up the design touches. The CMC comes in three distinct natural colors with fabric-lined interior and metal handles, truly harkening to a bygone era. To match, CMC’s sound quality is repeatedly brought up as loud and rich in many 5-star Amazon reviews. Generally speaking, this is the Bluetooth record player for 50’s lovers.

2. Victrola Vintage Suitcase Bluetooth Record Player with Speakers
Victrola has been making record players for over 100 years. That kind of heritage brings a certain gravitas that can’t be duplicated. With 18 colors and patterns from which to choose we think Victrola’s classic Bluetooth record player with speakers is one of the most interesting you can own. Why you ask? Look no further than the camouflage or hotrod red editions to see why Victrola isn’t pulling any punches. The suitcase record player also offers a rugged and easy to grip handle with what seems like an indestructible shell. If you don’t have a Bluetooth device handy the two Aux-in and headphone jack ports are super handy. Spoiler alert: Victrola makes it to our list twice – scroll to the bottom to see a very different look from the brand.
3. Akai Professional BT500 Premium Belt-Drive Wireless Turntable
While this isn’t a record player with speakers, it is one of the finest looking turntables we have ever seen. The glossy grain looks perfectly vintage, but somehow modern at the same time. The beautiful, heavy silver accents complement the darker colors well, and can fit perfectly in an aspiring Don Draper’s New York apartment. Finishing touches like a leveling bubble with adjustable feet and die-cast anti-resonance aluminum platter on a non-slip rubber mat hammer home the feeling of complete luxury. It’s worth noting the fine wood grain on Akai’s turntable could be paired with a product from our list of wood headphones.
4. Audio Technica AT-LP60BK-BT Bluetooth Record Player
With a clear leap into the modern era of music, the Audio Technica’s still retro-cool AT-LP6 is a real stunner. Not only are the looks on point, but professional-level features like a switchable built-in pre-amp that enables wired connection to components with or without a dedicated turntable input mean equipment aficionados will be completely satisfied. While there are only two color options, Audio Technica offers a beautiful overall look. Buyers suggest pairing with the Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth speaker for maximum sound impact.
5. Innovative Technology Classic Retro Bluetooth Stereo System
We love the ’80s! You can’t enjoy the era of big hair and big dreams without big sound. The period that brought us the all-in-one stereo system is now updated for 2017.

The Classic is truly a Bluetooth record player with speakers on steroids.
6. ION Audio Air LP Turntable
Though the turntable is not a true record player with speakers the ION looks as good as it sounds. The sleek turntable has tech chops to go with it’s good looks via included “EZ” vinyl/tape converter software. The program converts analog material to digital files via USB. That’s a feature totally unique to this list, and one that may make the ION an easy buying choice for vinyl record enthusiasts. The glossy, piano key finish is the only color option available – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if it fits your aesthetic. The Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth speaker also makes an appearance as a frequently purchased pair.
