Record player resurgence follows boom in vinyl sales with a strong resurgence in sales of record players, alongside vinyl. And it looks like the vinyl resurgence isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, it may be getting stronger.
The number of record players now sold in 2015 is up by 240% compared with same period in 2014 according to John Lewis and Nielsen. Vinyl album sales are up by 69% and a new official vinyl chart launched last month reflects an exciting revival of records.

We like these guys.
