Turntable furniture defined

Let’s quickly clarify the difference between stands, tables, cabinets, and consoles so that there is no confusion. Most of these furniture pieces serve the same purpose but provide different functionality. People often refer to each of these as the same thing when they are slightly different.

Record player stand and table: Stands and tables are similar and mostly made of wood. Furniture in this category is open as you can see what is placed on different storage levels.

Record player cabinet: These items tend to be large but can vary in size. They can differentiate themselves from stands with the addition of drawers, doors, and often with the option to conceal what is inside.

Record player media console: These items tend to be big entertainment pieces to store all your music equipment and can even come with built-in speakers. Media consoles were trendy in the 1950s and were the centerpiece of every bachelor pad.
