“Vinyl record sales increased 36.3 percent from 2010 to 2011 and the classic vinyl music machines have been making a recent comeback as a result. Pair these stats with the rising popularity of digital conversion and other multimedia sources, and you’ve got a winning combination to put a modern twist on a vintage favorite,” said Jerry Brach, Vice President. “It’s the perfect way for dad to share his most prized vinyl records with his whole family, helping a new generation embrace the music of a previous one.”
