Do good vinyl record playersrequire a lifetime warranty?

The recommended warranty period depends on how often you use your vinyl record players, how expensive is it, what company made it, and many other factors. Manufacturers sell their most expensive products with a lifetime warranty, while the least expensive vinyl record playersmight be not guaranteed at all. We think that the best warranty period for a good vinyl record players is five years.
