Bluetooth Record Players
Chances are, if you're interested in bluetooth record players or bluetooth speakers that work with record players, you already have part of the setup you need. It's possible that you already have a record player with bluetooth out, or you have bluetooth speakers and want to be able to use them with a record player that you already have. Either way, you're in luck. There are a couple models of entry-level turntables that recognize the demand you have to play vinyl on a wireless bluetooth speaker, and there are bluetooth transmitter/adapters that you can plug into standard turntables that will allow you to turn just about any turntable into a bluetooth turntable.
Now that more record players with bluetooth compatibility options are available, there are some setups that people have wanted for years that have otherwise been unavailable until recently. Specifically, now that Bose has a full line of bluetooth-enabled speakers for whole-home use (similar to Sonos, without all the restrictions of actually owning Sonos) you can finally have a Bose record player setup that will leave you with unlimited listening options. Don't get me wrong, it's not specifically a Bose turntable, but the option to play records through high-quality Bose speakers is right in front of you.
All you have to do is select one of the two turntables above, which have built-in pre-amps and bluetooth connectivity (bluetooth out built-in), and any of the bluetooth speakers listed below, and you'll be all set.
You'll notice not all those speakers are Bose, not everybody is looking for that, and the truth is it can be any bluetooth enabled speaker system. Those just happen to be be of the highest quality, listed from most affordable to the highest end bluetooth speaker options. My personal favorite bluetooth speaker is the UE Boom 2 listed above and it's bigger brother the UE Megaboom. I like them because they're super portable, have incredible sound, tout generous bluetooth range, and have significant all-day battery life for when they're not plugged in. If you're looking for more of a stationary bluetooth speaker setup, I'd certainly lean toward the Bose SoundTouch 20, it will always need to be plugged in for power, but it will never leave you wanting for sound quality.
Few people are probably looking for this option, but if you do want an all-in-one turntable setup that allows you to play music from your portable device to the same stereo, you might just be looking for this one pictured above. It doesn't allow you to play records into bluetooth speakers, but it is a bluetooth receiver and allows you to play music from your phone into the same system that would otherwise play your vinyl.
