Does the Victrola Nostalgic Classic Wood 6-in-1 Bluetooth Turntable provide everything to allow you to play your favorite vinyl records and albums?
Victrola Nostalgic 6-in-1 at a glance:
The Nostalgic Classic Entertainment Center by Victrola
Designs that remind us of something old or bygone always make us nostalgic. The record player we are going to review today has ‘nostalgic’ in its name.
This Victrola Classic Wood 6-in-1 Turntable Entertainment Center comes from the house of Victor who introduced their new line of talking machines with a turntable and amplifying horn inside a wooden cabinet.
These machines were named Victrola and the brand immediately became popular. Soon there were different designs and sizes of Victrolas flooding the market and by the end of 1920s, they became a much sought after brand.
After looking at the design of the product we can say that it oozes a contemporary style and distinctive craftsmanship that has been preserved for more than a century.
Although the record player boasts an iconic look, it features the most advanced technology of the day to play music from past generations.
The box has a simple lid at the top. At the front, there are two stereo speakers, volume controller FM, and other options. The product comes with a 3-speed turntable record player that can play different types of records such as the 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records that are available in 7, 10, and 12-inch sizes.
The Bluetooth capacity of this turntable entertainment center didn’t fail to impress us. It is capable of streaming music wirelessly up to 33 feet.
You can connect it with any Bluetooth-enabled device and play with ease. The product comes with a 3.5mm aux-in jack which enables users to connect it to non-Bluetooth devices.
The multi-entertainment center is the perfect gift for any music lover. Besides allowing you to listen to classic records that have been preserved over the years,
it also allows you to listen to sports or talk shows on the analog tuned FM radio. If you have cassettes or CDs, you can play your favorite numbers.
Now coming to the performance, the sound quality is good enough at this price. If you have speakers, you can use them to enhance the quality of sound.
What we like best about this product is that it allows you to play music of different genres and generations using both old and new methods.
Whether you want to play the traditional “gramophone” style record, CDs, cassettes, or play music directly from your smartphone, the Victrola 6-in-1 entertainment center works for all.

Compare featured record players:
We compared the Victrola 6-in-1 entertainment center with other products in the category and found that it is reasonably priced than most of them.
When we did a comparison with Boytone BT-25CH 8-in-1 Natural Wood Classic Turntable Stereo System, we found that it has 8 different music options while the product in this review has only six.
Furthermore, the Boytone music player is backed by a one year direct manufacturer warrant which makes it a risk-free purchase.
The Verdict: Is the Victrola Classic 6-in-1 Entertainment Center for You?
There’s something really nostalgic about the Victrola Classic Wood Entertainment Center which catches our attention. We love the exterior design of the product and the ability to play different types of music records. The three-speed turntable looks appealing and it allows you to play your favorite vinyl records and albums.
It also features a built-in FM radio, CD player, and cassette player. The sound quality is not excellent but good enough at this price.
If you ask us what is the one thing that makes Victrola 6-in-1 a recommended product, we would say the ability to play both new and old generation records.
One thing we would remind you about, is to read the warranty information carefully and be comfortable with how well it covers your purchase.
