ENJOY ALL YOUR MUSIC

DIAMOND TIPPED CERAMIC NEEDLE
 

FULLY AUTOMATIC BELT DRIVEN TURNTABLE

Archer

Backed by over 100 years of manufacturing high-quality audio products, Electrohome is pleased to introduce the Archer Turntable Stereo System: a fully automatic turntable with built-in speakers housed in a 60s-style suitcase that seamlessly blends vintage charm with twenty-first century convenience. As phonographic technology evolved into the Swinging 60s, so too did the ability for young people to bring their music out into the world for the first time (without the pain of having to hand-crank a pesky motor). Now you too can enjoy that feeling of independence and effortlessly bring the unique warmth of a vinyl LP with you anywhere there’s a power outlet – visiting with friends, working in the garage, or relaxing on your back porch – without sacrificing the audio quality of your favorite music.

Good Vibrations

Hear every warm crackle and subtle nuance of your favorite vinyl records anytime, anywhere with the Archer turntable stereo system’s two built-in, full-range stereo speakers. The rich, high-fidelity analog audio of your vinyl collection delivers a fuller and crisper listening experience than digitally compressed CDs or MP3s are capable of. A fully automatic system means the deck will come to a halt while the tone arm returns to its original position upon the final rotation of a record’s last groove. The belt-driven turntable plays 7, 10 and 12-inch records at three speeds of 33 1/3, 45 and 78 revolutions per minute, so you can rest assured knowing that your entire vinyl library can be enjoyed everywhere.

LET IT BE

Housed in an all-wood suitcase that’s as strong as it is tasteful, the Archer brings a charming retro chic to any surrounding. From a dorm room to backyard family barbeque, its vintage design is inspired by the first wave of 1950s and 60s portable turntables and comes with a convenient carrying handle, while its acoustic cabinet enhances the audio performance.

TIME OF THE SEASON

Enjoying the classic style of a retro 60s turntable doesn’t mean you have to miss out on twenty-first century convenience; play songs from your smartphones, tablets, or USB flash drive using the system’s AUX and USB input. Just as passionate music fans in the 60s were liberated from the trappings of home listening, the Electrohome Archer affords both casual listeners and audiophiles a simple, portable vinyl setup that seamlessly blends the old with the new.

  1. This turntable started malfunctioning 3 months after it was purchased. It makes awful noises that are louder than you can make the music go. As it was a Christmas gift and I don’t have a receipt, the company refused to repair it. Now my friends wasted good money…

  2. Great sound, and very happy with purchase! Perfect for a dorm room, or bedroom. Easy to use and operate. Really suggest this buy, compared to other record players, as this one is a great price and actually works!

  3. My son loves records and collects old music. We have been through 3 other record players in the past 2 years (they have all broken; the sound quit on one of them, the arm broke on another, the third stopped spinning). We just received the Electrohome Archer turntable and I have to say it is a really solid turntable for the price. It sounds great and is actually large enough to put a 33 record on and still be able to close the top. I have no complaints about the volume…I didn’t find it to be too quiet. Initial quality is impressive. I would recommend this for someone who doesn’t want to spend a large amount, but who wants a solid record player.

  4. These turntables use ceramic cartridges (the mechanism that converts the vibrations of the needle sliding across the grooves of the record into sound), which weigh way more than your average magnetic cartridge. Because of this, the turntable doesn’t need a preamp. The preamp is what amplifies the sound of your turntable going into your sound system. With a good turntable, a preamp is needed because the weight of the cartridge is less, meaning the sound it’s converting will be at a lower volume. The more the cartridge weighs, the louder the sound it produces will be. However, it still won’t sound nearly as good as a turntable that needs a preamp will. Also, the weight of the cartridge WILL DESTROY YOUR RECORDS! A heavier cartridge means more weight is pressing down on the needle dragging across your record. You’re spending money on a piece of equipment that will destroy something else you spent money on.

  5. this was the third portable turntable system I bought – I returned the first two (both made by Crosley) because the turntable was warped making the record sound awful. Third try was this unit and it’s been great. Sound is good for one room, turntable works nicely and lid helps keep dust off the unit when not in use.

  6. Wow! That’s about all I can say about this Record Player! I’m not a very educated man when it comes to record players. I never have been that “Oh I gotta have Vinyl, it sounds so much better!”, but that’s mainly because I grew up in the 80’s and didn’t really get into music until the early 90’s. That being said, my mom LOVES her old records and recently mentioned how she wished she had a player so she could use em again. The next day, this showed up on my Amazon “deals” page and I took it as a sign from above! Gave it to her for Christmas and she immediately put it to use! I am, however, very educated on sound equipment and I must say,…I was REALLY surprised at how good this thing sounded with it’s included speakers! I was expecting something to the tune of on old cassette player, but it got a FAR clearer sound! Mom was SUPER happy with her gift, so I was happy too! I’m sure for the perfectionist, this isn’t going to be their cup of tea, but for the rest of us, I honestly don’t know how you could get better for the price!

  7. We have numerous old vinyl LP’s and were looking for a retro-styled record player to listen to them. We weren’t interested in recording them (as we also have the albums on CD or MP3), but just wanted a record player that looked like the old style we had when we were kids. This unit definately fits the bill.The case and mechanism are well built and are of solid construction. It plays the LP’s flawlessly and does not skip or jump and returns the stylus to the start position when the record is done playing. We really like that you can close the lid while the record is playing. The speakers give a good, clear sound and the high volume level is much louder than we expected. The handle on the front side makes it easy to carry from one place to another. Although the unit arrived without an instruction manual, it was easily found online (you really don’t need the manual to run the record player). Shipping was very fast and the unit was well packed. We are very pleased with this player and highly recommend it!

  8. We couldn’t be more pleased with our new Electrohome Archer Vinyl Record Player Classic Turntable Stereo System!!! The sound system is fantastic….VERY high quality….and we love being able to listen to our old vinyl records that we began collecting so many years ago! Hearing the songs from when we were younger brings back many wonderful memories! The “suitcase” design makes it easy to transport if we choose to do so. The built-in speakers emit such beautiful sounds, and the fact that our record player has USB/AUX input and is MP3 compatible, adds extra features that you can’t find just anywhere. We strongly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality product. Happy listening!

  9. While there are other turntable record players on the market, we wanted one that would hook up to our computer, and this one does. Making it even better is the adorable retro styling- for the price offered (just under $100) it was hands down, the most attractive option. We loved the vintage look to the turntable and the fact it was so easy to set up should be music to your ears. It’s very easy to store as well, just close the vintage looking case and snap close, and safely stow it away. This affordable, budget player with great style and appeal is sure to go double platinum.

  10. This is a pretty good record player. It plays LP’s and 45’s. It also plays MP3s from an outside source such as a flash drive or Walkman.

    You can’t plug in external speakers but I thought the volume was loud enough anyway.

    The arm is a little light and may skip on records that have a lot of minor surface scratches. I’m thinking of taping a penny on it like we used to do.

    The only real problem I noticed was that some of the gray vinyl on the inside is coming up because the glue didn’t hold. A cosmetic problem mostly but should not have happened. I’ll probably just glue it back down myself.

    Not the best player out there, but for this price may be the best.

  11. It came on time and in excellent condition. Seems to be well made. It has a good sound and it gets pretty loud. It is a portable player so don’t expect it to have Bose speakers or anything. I did a lot of searching and reading reviews before I bought this one. I definitely think I made the right choice. Good quality, good price, and now I can finally listen to my Beatles records again. I just love it!

  12. First off, I apologize as I don’t know all the terminology of a record player as I’m just starting off in this collection.

    I bought this record player shortly after buying a vinyl from my favorite band (which soon became a collection) and I must say, it sounds great! It came with no faults as of yet, sounds flawless, and was packaged so that there would be no damage as it was shipped (a couple boxes surrounding the actual box, and all the attachments on the inside were tied down so that it would be safe).

    The player itself has a screw to tighten down the actual turn table for travel (which is easy enough to screw in and out but will stay in place when resting) as well as a latch to hold down the needle(?). Not to mention, it all-in-all looks great in my room.

    Because I bought this recently, I will be sure to edit this post if anything goes wrong. However as of now it is definitely 5 star material for its price and quality.

  13. Purchased this turntable for our college daughter 3 weeks ago. We still had many original vinyls from our past to listen to. We are astounded at how good the sound is! This turntable seems to be built well – all parts work and the case seems very sturdy. The speakers are impressive! I would highly recommend this product.

  14. I got this for my birthday and I love it. I already had a record player but wanted a more modern one. Something that was deceiving to me was the usb doesn’t work for u to plug up your phone to its strictly for you to put songs on a usb drive. But there is a aux port to plug your phone to. I was debating between this and a crosley I am happy with decison highly recommend! Speakers work well and are louder than I thought. Clear sound. And I like that it’s portable in the brief case style. It was shipped within a week as well. Good company. Hope this helps for those on the fence .

  15. For the first week or two this unit really was a great sounding addition to my audio library. I really was looking forward to not only the analog sound of records both old and new, but the nostalgic concept of it as well. The unit played older records well but there is a distortion in the right speaker that causes it to pop a lot while playing (even brand new records). I can take the same record over to my friends and it plays well on his Crosley. I really wanted both the left and right channels to be equally impressive but so far am questioning my purchase.

  19. The look and sound of the player is great. It fills a medium-sized tiled living room very nicely. It would skip as the reviews said, but once we taped a dime and a penny to the needle head it hasn’t skipped since. I would recommend this purchase as long as the aesthetics of having coins taped to your player doesn’t bother you!

  20. it’s portable and is designed quite well. The sound is clear considering the size of the speakers. Like the fact that records can be played with the cover open as well as closed; not all record players in this cost range have this function!

  22. Made from wood not plastic. The way it should. great sound for a portable record player. It also has a full size turn table. Most travel record players do not. Very nice feature. Buy it.
    UPDATE: one year later I have just contacted Electro home to send my player back because it has stopped turning at the required speed. Bummer. I use my record player daily and treat it very nice. So I hope that this won’t continue happening on a yearly basis. I will update my review after the issue has been resolved with Electrohome….

  23. My mother-in-law recently passed away at the age of 88. When she was 14 (1939) she recorded four 78s for MGM Studios during her auditions. We discovered these rare recordings just this last year. After a great deal of searching amazon.com for a player that we could listen to these rare gems I selected the Electrohome Turntable. We used the Electrohome to play an aria at my mother-in-laws memorial service. It played beautifully for everyone’s delight!

  26. Great record player for the cozy apartment. Has excellent volume and the connections allow for some diversity if you don’t have the albums you want to listen to on vinyl just yet.

    Only problem was with skipping on certain records. By far more consistently clear than not, but there were a couple of records that skipped (probably just the records).

    Highly recommended.

  27. How refreshing to find a company that stands behind its products! I purchased this as a gift and unfortunately wasn’t told that it had ceased to work not long after they received it. It was borderline close to the end if it’s warranty. I expected to have to fight with customer service and instead dealt with an extremely helpful group of people. Unfortunately this type of service has become the exception rather than the rule. Thank you! The unit was returned working and everyone is happy. This company will be the 1st place I check for any of my electronic needs.

  28. Shipped really quickly. I bought this as a Christmas present and haven’t had a chance to use it yet so I will write more when I’ve had some experience but I purchased this after reading reviews and reading the descriptions. I like the classy look and that it’s easy to transport. It comes with a nice built in speaker and can play at 3 different speeds. I like that you can close the lid with a record in it as well. Other reviews say the speaker is nice. I think it would be nice if the case came with a storage compartment for the power cable.

  29. I received this as a Christmas gift from my parents last month along with some of their old records. I’m not an expert, but I think the sound quality is very good. My father is more discerning and agreed when we listened to records back home together. I love that it’s portable and lightweight. I’d recommend this for any person in their mid 20s. It will be easy to move between places I rent and it’s nice that I can use it with my roommates in the living room, but easily bring it back to my bedroom when we’re done.

  30. I’ve owned the record player for about a month and so far so good. Both vinyl and mp3s (played through the AUX input) sound great given the price and quality. It’s definitely on the lower end of the spectrum as far as record players go. If you’re an audiophile with a massive record collection, invest in a higher end turntable and good speakers. But for what it is, the Electrohome is excellent. Not to mention they offer a one year warranty for writing a review! Hence…

  33. This turntable works pretty good however, the tone arm does not return when reaching end of album as it should. I contacted Electrohome by email for technical support and received a response in less than 24 hours. Unfortunately, their advice was not helpful. Speakers are small and tinny, but what would you expect from such a small case.

Shipping was lightning fast, it was packaged with no damage, set up was easy, love the “suit case” style of it, and love the high quality, high definition sharp sound it gives out.

  35. This item came really quickly. I really like how easy it is to set up, how it looks and how it’s portable. You can also plug in your mp3 player of sorts and use the speaker power on this item to play your music. It has a good range of soft to really loud. It’s very user friendly and super cute!

  36. This product works perfectly with any type of record. It is also very nice because it can close while it has a record on it so that dust will not get onto your item. It is easy to use and not to big so that it can fit on most tables. It is durable because it is made with very nice leather and it is black so that it can fit in with most decors.

  37. I’ve had the player for a few weeks now and it’s been great, everything I expected for the price. I wasn’t planning on moving it around very much, so the size and the weight are not a big issue. The sound is good, I haven’t had to go up to full volume yet, I’m sure it’s loud enough to be heard at a dinner party. All in all I’m very happy with my purchase and I think it’s a great starting point!

  44. The Electrohome Archer Turntable is exactly what we were looking for. My son was turning 18 and loves to buy albums. However, he didn’t have a turntable to play them on. At first I bought him a different brand and it was terrible so we returned it to the store we bought it from and I found this one on Amazon. I read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. It’s been great. It has good sound quality, never skips and you can close the lid while playing which is great. It was his favorite gift!

  46. This is a great product for an “every now and then” use. Only thing that bothers me a tad it’s that records with deeper grooves tend to make the needle skip and I have to use a quarter to weigh down the stylus on order to make it play properly. Other than that it’s great! Sound is wonderful and warm and the quality is nice and sturdy.

  50. The Electrohome is in great condition and the description has held true. However, the USB portion was misleading because it didn’t mention the port was only compatible with 3rd generation iPods/iPhones. So you would have to buy another accessory in order to connect any device older than that. Hence the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.

  52. My niece wanted a record player for a graduation present. I looked at several brands; especially the Crossley. This was a great deal on Amazon; $170 marked down to $100. It’s very sturdy, the record fits completely inside the player so you could even play records with the lid closed. The sound is great and will be perfect for her college apartment. An added bonus was that I haven’t had the fun of looking through records at a record store in years and it was wonderful to share that with my niece:)

We even brought out our old albums and records from 30 & 40 years ago, and they sounded great! I’m glad she is now enjoying something that her parents enjoyed so much in our youth. She hasn’t downloaded any music yet, but I’m glad she has the option to do that. We would recommend for teens as well as adults.

  54. This was purchased as a gift for my college age daughter, who is starting to listen to music on vinyl. We tried some of the others out there and found that this seemed to be a simple, sturdy device that would function as a “beginning” turntable and allow her to move it easily as she goes from dorm to apartment. I was concerned about the lack of speaker outputs, but she feels it is loud enough for her tastes and her small room. So far it seems to be sturdy and we have not had any operational issues.

  66. I got this turntable second hand here in Halifax when I moved in town a few months ago. After carrying it back to my place from the seller’s place, I discovered it had somehow broken on the way (I still don’t know what broke). I thought it was the strap, so I checked but it was not. I got in touch with the company, and even though I didn’t have the original receipt and I wasn’t the original owner, they agreed to replace it for me. I must say their customer service have been stellar, which is odd from a low end company, but it really needs to be told about them. They’ve been super nice, and I was impressed.

    It’s true that it’s a cheap chinese gadget. It probably won’t last very long. On the other hand, it’s quite convenient if you’re looking for a simple basic turntable you can carry around. I use it in my room (I live with flatmates here) and it’s perfect for that. However, some disappointing things should be told about it:

    1) The build quality isn’t great. Yes, the vinyl inside peels off. The front latch dismantles by itself, too. It doesn’t look repairable either. None of those will be working in 50 years.

    2) Yes, the needle skips on records. I didn’t try to tape a coin on it, I just accept some skipping or change records for ones that plays allright. But it’s true that it would need better balancing.

    3) There is no sound output on this unit. If you want to plug in headphones or to get the sound to external amp and speakers, well, you just can’t. I must say this is quite bad in a turntable. I guess it would be possible to modify that, but I can hardly see why someone would want to modify this thing, instead than just getting a normal turntable and amp.

    4) The usb connection for playing music on your phone results in worse, unbalanced, muddy sound. I tried it, and never used it again.

    Should Electrohome decide to get their things together and make a better version, this could be a very good versatile portable turntable. For now, it’s intended for being an impulsive acquisition in Wal-Marts, and it’s sad. It works, though. And for the price, it’s not that bad, though 100 bucks will get you a very good used turntable anywhere in this world.

  69. Very portable, nice looking, good sound with no distortion, well packaged, accepts USB input. Wonder why it does not provide recording to USB output.

  70. I love it. Just got it. Looks and works just as described, and my 33s and 78s sound pretty good. I had one, different of course, when I was a kid — one that opened up like suitcase like this one but the speakers folded out from the top — and this one gives me a similar feelings. Good to feel like a kid. :) My kid loves it, too. She’s already played some Jimmy Cliff and the Andrew Sisters on it and really wants to play some more vinyl. I recommend this turntable.

  71. This is an amazing record player! It has amazing sound and is easily portable. The packing inside the record player itself was poorly. The styrofoam left a mark where you place the vinyl. It doesn’t affect the sound just more of an eye sore. Wish it would fully open instead of at an angle. Other than that the best record player I ever had

  73. This is a great buy for not much money! At first i purchased a Crosley Record player and apart from being good looking it was a piece of crap and then discovered how many negative reviews ppl have written over time. I actually got the first one replaced by another one that was also faulty. It was then that i did some researched(which i should have done in the first place) and came across the Electrohome. It had great reviews so i decided to try it out. When it arrived i was shocked at how sturdy this product was and how good looking it was. When i plugged it in and played an LP i wass BLOWN AWAY at how great the quality was and how LOUD it could get. It can be set up with desktop speakers as well. This was a great purchase and couldnt be happier! It even closes while playing!! Something the Crosley piece of junk couldn’t do. If you are looking for a great inexpensive and effective record player then this is it!

  74. Nice turntable for a good price. It skips a bit when playing new vinyls but the problem can be fixed by taping two pennies to the head of the needle.

  75. This is great sound. Like it because it doesn’t do ten different things. It basically just plays records. Good quality. I’m very happy with this.

  77. I was looking for a portable record player for quite some time and ended up taking a chance with this one. Well, I’m very satisfied! It plays 3 speeds, it’s very affordable, and it can also play anything with a USB cable and what have you. Even though I only use it for records and not my iPod or computer, it’s nice to know that it’s there. Surprisingly good sound quality for the price. Highly recommended.

  78. I was very excited to order this record player for my boyfriend for the holidays. Once it arrived, and after he unwrapped it, we could not wait to put on a record. We quickly noticed a slight grinding noise (best way to describe it). After further investigation we determined the spinning round was unbalanced or off kilter, causing it to scrape below the rod holding the needle. We checked the instructions/manual, and it was noticed that an unbalanced board is somewhat common, and adjusting the main screw was suggested. This did not work. It almost seemed to make the situation worse, and we decided to quit trying to play an album for fear of the the player ruining the vinyl. The most disappointing part of all is trying to seek assistance. We promptly went online to submit a request for assistance from the company and received a message stating we would be contacted shortly. Nearly three weeks later…. Nothing. Very very disappointed. If we are not contacted soon, I will be returning the item and seeking another record player brand for purchase.

    UPDATE: Posting a comment on Amazon does help! I was immediately contacted by a service rep, we set up a call and I explained the problem. I was told that after we ship back the defective unit a new (pre tested) record player would be sent. After the entire process, we received a fully-functional record player. Grant it, it was two months after Christmas, but at the end of the day we have a record player that works, produces beautiful sound and plays records. What more could you ask for.

  79. Works fine, loud enough for home use, built in speakers and portability a plus. It is nice to play the old records again.

  80. This was a Christmas gift for my daughter. I played flawlessly right out of the box, and she continues to enjoy it on a daily basis. Cool retro vibe adds to the charm of the gift.

  81. Incredible sound quality, the clarity of the records is amazing and volume level is even higher than expected. The quality of this piece is phenomenal, i love its portability. I chose this player for functionality and it exceeds my expectations. It is good looking, highly functional and the quality is impeccable for the price, highly recommended!

  82. We had some old records laying around that my kids wanted to hear play on a record player. This player certainly does a nice job in playing them for the money. The sound is much better than I expected, plenty of volume for normal use, unless you’re planning on Deejaying a party. I heard the same records played on a Crossley and think the Electrohome was superior in sound quality.
    If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to play your old records (that you think you’ll sell on-line someday, but never will) buy this little machine and enjoy them yourself. In the world of perfect digital music it is enjoyable to listen to some old vinyl with the scratches and all.

  84. Wow, I used a similiar record player when I had my sweet 16 party. I bought records for my children that I can now share with their children — my grands.

  85. Very important to review the comments. This product is probably a little more money but is standing up to daily use without issues. Attractive and not that big SOund is adequate…

  86. The turntable worked great for 2 days and then stopped. Wouldn’t work at all. I contacted the manufacturer and they think it might be the adaptor so they’re sending a new one. Hoping that will solve the problem, otherwise I will have to send it back for a replacement. My 3-star rating could be upgraded to 5-star if the unit is returned to full working order.

    I’m happy to say that the replacement adapter did the trick and the turntable works great now. Really enjoying listening to the old albums again.

  87. I purchased this as a birthday gift for my 16 year old gramddaughter. She is delighted with it. Before acquiring LPs she enjoyed playing music from other sources through it. Now that she has acquired an LP library her pleasure with it is huge. It was a “hit” gift.

  88. I got this as a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas and I would highly recommend it. Sound is good considering you’re not hooked up to Bose speakers and the unit gets pretty loud. My boyfriend has never had vinyl before and is now very excited about starting his collection. Also, he carried on the player through security at the airport with no trouble.

  91. First, I received my player in a very timely manner! I still love prime for this. Once I got it, it was very easy to set up. ( literally takes two minutes) then you can start to enjoy your music. I would recommend this to a friend!

  92. Was a gift for my son who is loving my vinyl collection. It was out of stock but came as promised after Xmas.
    My son loves how easy it is to use and it's great in his dorm room. Nice to be able to listen with headphones so as not to bother roommates.

  93. Great product ! Works as described. Retro look.

  94. Great item. Sound quality fairly good, would recommend to others. Price cannot be beat.
