So you want to start a record collection but your on a budget? Too many people will tell you, that you need to spend a lot of $$$ just to get a basic bookshelf stereo. I am hear to tell you that is a lie! I have found a way to give you great sound out of your record player for less than $100!
Please understand this isn’t a guide to shop for stereo equipment at yard sales, or goodwill. This is with brand new equipment that you can get from Amazon.com.
I will show you what to buy, how to set it up, and how to troubleshoot any issues you might run into.
So get ready to save and enjoy your new album collecting hobby on the cheap all thanks to my DIY guide to making a mini hifi.
PS this also works as a mini hifi for your laptop, cell phone, or mp3 player. All you need is a Stereo 2.5mm to 2 x RCA Male to Male AV Cable cable 😀
