As times change and life evolves, the world becomes more and more technically efficient and what is old stays old while new replaces the way we used the old. It’s crazy how styles come in and out in the world of fashion, and clothes recycle themselves, but when it comes to technology it’s all about converting our old stuff to new options so we can still use it.
We have a slew of old vinyl records from our parents, and their collections and even some of our own (ha!). I have found the most simple method to convert vinyl records to MP3 and the result is a party all day long, with Bluetooth friendly music that we can listen to as we work and of course no computer necessary.
It’s time to lavishly live a simple method to convert vinyl records to MP3’s out loud and learn how to recycle your old-school technology into Today’s Best Hits to be listened to on all of your favorite devices from iPhones to tablets!
Keeping Our Memories Of Music Gone By
Unlike the world of fashion, technology becomes a dinosaur and the options to reuse what have are just often not there. MP3’s, Cassettes, old vinyl records, 8 track tapes are clunkers and really not how we listen to music today. Our current world is tech-driven, Bluetooth friendly and certainly not cemented to a turntable (a way to play old vinyl records).
As kids, our parents played the music of their lives on stereos with speakers, huge turntables and the music would fill just that room. The heavy turntables were often encased in furniture and were key to the room! Oh how things have changed.
We all love our music, and we can love on our memories too, because music comes with us wherever we go with a thing called Bluetooth. Everything from portable speakers to portable players and devices let us listen on the go, at the beach, in any room of our home.
The trick that we were looking for was converting our parents old vinyl records to our new way of listening, so we might romanticize the music or their day with our lives on occasion. I did not have to search to hard to find the appropriate method for us to convert those vinyls to a different form of listening.
Simple Method To Convert Vinyl Records To MP3
If you are familiar with the story of Goldilocks you know that she tried out a lot of bowls of porridge until she found one that was just right? We have been down the path of testing out a lot of ways to convert our vinyls to MP3’s and finally we got it JUST RIGHT.
The key to getting your vinyls converted is a GOOD turntable with adjustable speeds, remember vinyls had 3 settings and of course you want to be able to play the music back on mobile devices.
Cheap Does Not Work
You don’t want to have to work with your computer to convert the files, it just gets messy. Also, cheap turntables are just that and they might even harm your old vinyls, so be leery of anything Under $100 (been there, done that).
Want to get an idea of what it would cost if you took the vinyls to someone to convert? Hundreds upon hundreds of dollars, is the cost (if you have many like we do) so a $130 investment is nothing, because suddenly we have a playlist for all of our fun night gatherings when we just want to listen.
You could purchase a converter that just converts, but why not have the ability to plug in and play or listen to the turntable via Bluetooth. Maybe one of your guests coming over tells you they have old vinyls to bring and you want to listen to them, just use Bluetooth and have fun! It’s often simple pleasures at parties that go the furthest and this is a great way to enjoy.
