Stylised suitcase vinyl players have become very popular in the home, providing owners of vinyl records with somewhere they can listen to their collection. Much of the range can connect to smart devices via Bluetooth, this allows users to hear wirelessly streamed music at a higher volume. This is also a useful way to listen aloud to podcasts, online videos or audiobooks without needing an additional speaker unit.

Shop Briefcase Record Players

The compact nature of the briefcase record player makes it a very easy item to transport, many having an attached handle for this reason. The vinyl players themselves have built-in speaker systems, meaning listeners can play their vinyl records in any room they choose. The suitcase record player is not designed to be used in a professional DJ environment and is advisably suited to the home.

Vinyl pressed music is still enjoyed by much of the population thanks to this design, though the variety of style choices are to integrate with existing interior decor. Each style variant can provide bedrooms, dining rooms and other areas of the home a music hub for the whole family to enjoy. As mentioned, many of the players can connect to your smart devices via Bluetooth, thus further improving system versatility.

The players use the turntable to revolve your vinyl beneath the stylus needle, this needle is attached to the tone arm which is lowered onto the far side of the vinyl itself. All music is made up of thousands of different waveforms that have been pressed onto the vinyl itself creating indents in the PVC. Any vibrations the stylus encounters within the indented grooves of your record will be turned from an electrical signal to listenable sound via the inner speakers.

What is the difference between suitcase record players and briefcase record players?

There is no difference between the two and both mean the same thing, the feeling of owning a vinyl of sentimental value is usually the main attraction to vinyl record usage. Digital music is indeed far easier to access, but occasionally some sound fidelity can be lost when digital files are transferred which generally is the reason many choose physical vinyl for its rich tone. As long as a power source is nearby you can enjoy vinyl music in the homes of friends or relatives, be sure to close and lock the lid before transportation.

Briefcases and suitcases are similar objects but the equipment is referred to differently depending on where you are from. Meaning one city may know this item to be a briefcase player but the next city along prefers to name it a suitcase player. Generally, they are understood to be the same thing but briefcase tends to be more accurate in terms of relative size.

Please note that the briefcase vinyl players we supply are not for pro DJ environments and should only ever be used in the home. Nevertheless, casual listeners can get a great deal of use out of them while they simultaneously look great in most modern spaces. Both of our contemporary and retro designs are popular, with orders placed all year round as either a gift or for interior design purposes.

Is it worth buying a suitcase vinyl player?

For the casual listener, owning one of these items is a great way to listen to vinyl music and the Bluetooth options allow the streaming of unlimited music via the internet and your smart devices. For example, the Bluetooth function can double up as a way to listen to podcasts, audiobooks or yoga instructors as well as your music. Anything you can play on your device can be transmitted via Bluetooth, allowing the player to amplify it at a volume of your choice.

One downside to the record collection is that PVC vinyl has grown expensive to create and as a result, the albums themselves are far more expensive to buy on the high street or online. While we do not stock albums per se, vinyl collectors will be glad to know that we supply protective record storage cases and vinyl wipes to keep your collection in good condition. Yes, it is worth ordering a briefcase vinyl player as either a gift or as an addition to the home interior design.

How do I take care of my vinyl records?

We stock many sizes of record case, some holding between 70 and 100 vinyl, if you want to keep your collection in good shape it is advised to sleeve your records when not in use. Most records come packaged with this sleeve and resembles a piece of paper with a hole in the middle, once sleeved you can store your collection vertically in the vinyl cases. It is advised you store them upright like this to avoid the potential warping of your records which can occur naturally, for instance, if left in the sun.

Once you have listened to your vinyl, gently wipe both side A and side B with a soft, dry cloth to remove any dust that may have landed on the disc as you listened to it. Also, the general handling of your records is important too so try to hold them without applying your fingertips where possible, perhaps held at either side with each of your palms. This is to deter any potential fingerprint oil or dust that may have build up in the indents, if left untreated this can affect the smoothness of your vinyl playback.
