Why We Like It – Wockoder Record Player Review
With decent speakers and good sound quality, this belt-drive 3-speed turntable offers one of the cheapest ways to experience vinyls for yourself and others, given its lightweight design.
Since the WOCKODER Recrod Player is belt-driven, it provides better sound quality than most direct-drive turntables, at least traditionally. It has three speeds: 33 1/4, 45, 78 RPM. which is nice for various forms of vinyl. Sound quality does take a slight hit when you use the internal speakers. They are average, at best. Given its pseudo-compact design, this is to be expected. For better sound, go with a pair of external speakers via RCA output. Better yet, an Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB-BK is ideal for audiophiles, if you’ve got the money for one.
The WOCKODER KD-2008BL Record Player was definitely built with portability in mind. For starters, it has a dimensions of 12.30 x 10.00 x 4.10 inches, and weighs 5.28 lbs. Compare that with other portable record players like the Byron Statics Turntable Vintage Record Player, and the WOCKODER comes out much smaller and lighter than its competitor. It comes with built-in stereo speakers, but also RCA output if you’ve settled somewhere and have a pair of external speakers for better sound.
The WOCKODER Record Player isn’t the best sounding turntable, nor the best overall. What it does accomplish, however, is being one of the best options to introduce vinyls to your collections, without spending insane amounts of money. It sounds good, lightweight, and easily fits as a suitcase turntable when you’re on the go. It doesn’t hurt that the turntable looks vintage, too, making it a great piece to have displayed. All that for just $59? It gets our seal of value. When the time comes, you may want to upgrade to a Crosley CR704D-PA or Victrola VTA-600B-ESP.
