Introduction – What is All in One Turntable?
Let’s get right into the meaty bit: all-in-one turntables are regular turntable models that were either modified or specifically manufactured with highly versatile settings. Some are equipped with Digital Radio tuners, others are compatible with modern electronic devices while some have a vast array of special features.
It’s important to note that these turntable models are primarily turntables – standalone MP3 players are more likely to perform better on their field, for example.
What are the benefits of owning an All in One turntable?
The benefits you can take advantage of by owning an All in One turntable are great and numerous. First of all, you don’t need to purchase a lot of different devices that serve similar purposes when you can have them All in One.
Secondly, they’re more cost-effective – Having a machine that will do all of these jobs will also help you save money.
Lastly, you can consider these turntables as an improvement over the regular models. They still look fashionable and retro, but they’re more capable and reliable.

Jensen All-In-One Hi-Fi Stereo CD Player Turntable & Digital AM/FM Radio Tuner Tape Reflex Stereo Sound System
This fella is the senior model of Jensen’s All-In-One turntable series. It’s equipped with various features such as CD playback, AM/FM tuner, Stereo, and more. It can do pretty much whatever you please – record your CD-R or CD-RW discs, deliver the goods via built-in Stereo Tuner, play your old cassettes… It also comes equipped with a nifty auxiliary input.

We are looking at an old-fashioned record player with a vintage look that will light up your room with some classy vibes.
The only problem is the Radio – the signal is not too powerful, so it might take a while before you can get a clear reception. This is not such a terrible flaw if you consider that the radio is replaceable, so if you don’t feel like tinkering and peddling with the radio that’s supplied with this model, simply install a new one.
