Records Come in Different Shapes in Sizes
There are actually different vinyl sizes and different speeds accordingly. There are three main types of vinyl record sizes: the first one is a seven-inch record which plays at 45 RPM. It’s used for singles and fits around four to five minutes of music on each side.
The second type is a 12-inch record that plays at 33 RPM. This is the most common type of record that is usually seen in the store because it has a much larger size. A storage of up to 44 minutes of music on both sides together. Great for albums! Finally, the third is the 10-inch disc and these would be the oldest styles, which play 78 RPM. We say stick to the 12-inch record.
Made The Purchase? – How it’s Done
If you’ve already bought it, you probably have the set up already and done. The first thing you MUST know is that the vinyl record must be picked up by the edges. It minimizes the amount of grease that reaches it as this can affect the sound quality. You place the vinyl record onto the turntable into the hole in the disc in the center and choose the appropriate speed. Place the needle onto the record, the record will then start to spin and the needle will start to catch onto the groove.
You’ll find the needle start to vibrate which will then be turned to soundwaves. These sound waves will get amplified and if you did succeed, the music will play automatically and finally become hearable music! Things could be a lot different if you have a more recent turntable record player, it all depends on how old it is.

The new technological development it’s equipped with is an added value and as you’ve read, there are so many features you can pick from! Be sure to look over your key features priorities before making a purchase. Sit back and enjoy your old vinyl record playing… through Bluetooth.
“Sitting in a room, alone, listening to a CD is to be lonely. Sitting in a room alone with an LP crackling away, or sitting next to the turntable listening to a song at a time via 7-inch single is enjoying the sublime state of solitude.” – Henry Rollins
