Since the music industry’s move to digital, sales of physical music units have plummeted. Music lovers across the globe have opted for the ease and convenience of having an infinite music library in the palm of their hands. Streaming services like Spotify or Pandora have further increased that trend, allowing users to listen to their favorite hits and curate their own playlists without committing to a purchase. Digital is the new wave and it’s here to stay.
But while record sales have seen a steady decline over the years, the music industry has seen a resurgence of a vintage classic: the vinyl record. But this is no ordinary comeback. According to Soundscan, only 900,000 vinyl records were sold in 2006. In 2011, 3.9 million. In 2014, 9.2 million records sold, a metric achieved for the first time in 20 years! Vinyl records aren’t just coming back, they’re coming back with a vengeance. Unsurprisingly, millenials have been the demographic most responsible for this latest trend. As a result, record companies have revamped their vinyl inventories, making it possible to bridge new age sound with a retro feel.
Given the numbers, it’s no surprise that many millenials are considering buying a digital turntable online. But not all digital turntables are made equal. Prices can easily reach the $1,000 mark, deterring music lovers of all ages. In response, our Boytone team has provided an enticing alternative, the Boytone Digital Turntable. No other turntable in the market gives you the quality vintage sound, portability, convenience, and affordability that we provide.
