We have not long been in our new house and even though there is literally tons of things to still do, parts of it are starting to feel homely and comfortable and one of the first spaces we sorted out was what we call "the record nook". When Mr A was around one years old he broke our turntable arm right off as well as the speakers going it really meant we needed another option, but as usual other things kept popping up so we were more than delighted when we were offered to review Auna retro record player from Hifi Tower.
We love the vintage feel to the record player and it's nice and small so fits perfectly on our window sill. It's really easy to use and now that Mr A is that little bit older he is really great with picking out records he wants to listen to and popping them on. We have been currently listening to Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Woodstock, Elton John's tiny dancer, Wolfmother, Etta James and everything in between

It also has a built in radio so when I feel like hearing what is going on in the world while reading a book, it's a great way to wind down the day. Even when it seems like we are never going to get the house anywhere near finished at least there is somewhere put up our feet at the end of the day.

The Auna record player comes in at around £50 - it's a great looking entry level turntable that is meant for light use. It's great for social areas and even though the sound is not super crisp and the stylus is a bit light it's still great value for money so if your looking for a starting point that has style it's worth looking at this one.
