HiFi Stereo Record Changers - Multi Speed 16 / 33 / 45 / 78 RPM





Hi-Fi Stereo Record Changer Turntables



Record Changers

allow to stack records for automated uninterupted play. The changer drops a record form the stack, plays it and when played drops another record to play, continuosly, until the stack is exhausted.
Changes have been around form the 40's and in the days of old were constructed quite coarse. With advancement in technology changers became more gentle in the way they treated records, but still are not considered ideal, if playing today's rare, mint condition and expensive collector records - A quality turntable will be more appropriate for ultimate conserving of rare records.
If playing lots of records - may it be for day to day listening, or to record singles, or only once for archiving, etc., a record changer may become appealing as it serves the manual labor of serving them. As mentioned: Technolgy advanced over time, so generally changers of later vintage (60's, and up) are more gentle with records than the early ones (50's)- AND changers that were top of the line at the time made, are more refined than lower cost models.
As a rule of thumb: I probably would recommned to match the changer with the time aera form which the records come, that are being listened to, or in other words: A changerform the 50's is not a perfect match for playing records form the 70s + 80's . That because: Mono LPs form the 50's are more coarse than modern records. which were meant to be played on modern equipment.

In regards to the most advanced record changing turntables: Unfortunately at the time when Hi-Fi Stereo had risen and turntables had ripened to their perfection only few record changers models were manufacturd. This leaves record changers based on the construction of a modern Hi-Fi player to be quite rare and expensive. Thus I distinguish between "Hi-Fi" and other record changers.
