This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Sure, your new (or old) turntable may have come with its own pair of speakers, but if you're looking to get the absolute best sound out of it, you're going to want to invest in a set designed specifically for playing vinyl. They feature the latest in audio technology to help capture that warm, grainy feel for which records are known, and come in compact sizes to fit alongside the player itself. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best speaker for vinyl on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 04, 2019:

One of the first things to consider when shopping for speakers for your vinyl player is whether it has a built-in preamp or not. This is the device that amplifies weak electrical signals so they can be played loudly, and you'll need one, whether in standalone form or built into the speakers or the turntable itself, if you're going to enjoy your music at a reasonable volume. Recognizing that some record players come with such a device and some do not, we've included speakers both with built-in preamps and without. The Pioneer SP-FS52 and JBL Arena B15, for example, fall into the latter category, while the Kanto YU6, Edifier R1280T, and others fall into the former.
