Gadgets | Amazon sold more turntables than any other home audio product

The Jensen all-in-one turntable is king on Amazon.com.

Following the news that HMV were selling up to a turntable a minute in the run up to Christmas, Amazon have released news that their best selling home audio product this Christmas was a turntable.

More popular than both a Yamaha Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver with AirPlay and the SONOS PLAY:1, a two-room music streaming starter set, the Jensen JTA-230 3-speed stereo turntable with built-in speakers was Amazon’s seasonal hit, challenging the dominance of streaming services in the home.

Priced at just over $50, the Jensen is about as entry-level as you can get, complete with USB-port for digitising your records and an aux for your iPod. That said, one of the only budget turntables with pitch control and tone adjustment, (as well as the ability to play 78s – although you will need a different cartridge) the Jensen offers greater flexibility and reliability than other budget brands.

That the Jensen was so popular suggests many were receiving it as their first ever turntable, reflecting the continued year on year rise in vinyl sales.
