Unlike a lot of record player stands available today, this one has a real wood construction. This ensures that it is particularly sturdy, so you won’t need to worry about it toppling over if there is a lot of movement in the room.

This stand is made from laminated particleboard and has a sturdy metal base. As such, this stand is particularly sturdy and will hold your records and your stand safely – even if there is a lot of movement in the room.

The 3 open cubbies are perfect for organizing your favorite albums. Although, if you prefer to store your records in a different manner, the cubbies also make for a break bookstand or even an alcohol rack (why not keep your music and favorite tipple in the same place?).

The top cubby has an open back, which is a really excellent feature. This allows you to easily connect audio equipment without having to deal with wires poking out of the stand. Each cubby can hold up to 15 lbs, which is far heavier than you likely need!

Buyer’s Guide

Record player stands aren’t just a piece of furniture. In addition to looking good, they need to be practical and keep your record player (one of your most prized possessions) safe. As such, purchasing a record player stand can be a little bit intimidating.

That’s why we’ve created a handy buyers’ guide. Below is a list of things you should consider before purchasing a record player stand. To ensure that you’re making the most informed purchase possible, check it out!

Size

Before purchasing a record player stand, you should figure out what exactly you’re hoping to use it for, and where you hope to put it. Do you have quite a large record player? Are you hoping for a multi-purpose piece of furniture? Do you want to store every single record you’ve ever bought in this stand?

If you have a large collection of records, a number of record player accessories, or even a large record player, it will be necessary to purchase a large record player stand. This might sound obvious, but you’d be surprised to know how many people end up overloading a stand that is not a sufficient size for their belongings.

On the other hand, if you’re low on space, look for innovative space-saving stands, such as wall-mounted record player shelves. Wall-mounted record player shelves don’t have any storage options for your records, however, they are very sturdy, safe, and don’t add to the clutter of the room!

Cable Management

The phrase ‘cable management’ was mentioned quite a few times in the product reviews above, but you might wonder, what does this actually mean? Well, it essentially alludes to a feature that helps reduce the appearance and fussiness of cables.

Rather than having cables here, there, and everywhere, a product with cable management ensures they are well organized. In the case of record player stands, features such as a backless shelf or holes in the backboard allow for better cable management.

If you’re looking for a record player stand that will look great and be easy to use, you should definitely opt for one with a cable management feature. All of the record player stands listed above have cable management features.

Record Storage

We briefly mentioned record storage in the ‘size’ section, however, this is quite an important topic that definitely deserves its own discussion. It may be the case that you have a large record collection, and you’d like a record stand that allows you to show your collection off.

Or, it might be that you want a record stand that will help you store some of your favorite records safely. Either way, you will need a record player stand that comes with a considerable amount of storage space.

When you’re looking for such a stand, be sure to opt for one that allows you to store your records vertically. This helps to prevent any warping of the vinyl. If you live with kids or pets, we recommend purchasing a stand with enclosed storage space.

If you have opted for a unit that isn’t technically made for a record player and record storage, we recommend purchasing wire baskets. You can keep your records vertical in these baskets, and place them on the shelves. This will also help with organization!

Style

Finally, it is important to remember that a record player stand is a piece of furniture. As such, it would work well with your pre-existing decor. In fact, record player stands can make a great statement piece that brings the whole room together. If you’re a fan of the vintage style, we recommend opting for a mid-century modern cabinet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Put A Record Player On A Shelf?

Yes, absolutely! However, if you use speakers with your record player, make sure you don’t store the speakers on the same shelf as the record player. When the speakers vibrate they could cause the record player damage.

What’s The Best Way To Store Vinyl Records?

Generally, you want to store vinyl records in a cool dry place. If records are exposed to high heat for extended periods of time, they can warp. It is also a good idea to store records upright, as placing them on top of each other could also cause them to warp under the weight.

Do Record Players Need To Be Flat?

Yes. Record players should always be kept as level as possible. This means that, when you move your record player, you should carry it as carefully as you can. If your record sits slightly off level, this should be fine, but if it isn’t level enough it can cause serious problems.
