Turntable Lab was founded in 1999. Fresh out of NYU, Anthony, Pete, and Jasper opened up in a college apartment with a static HTML site + a 56K modem. As the first online store to cater to DJs, the Lab made its name by selling Technics 1200s and Shure M447s at fair prices.
Fast-forward over 20 years, Anthony and Pete are still running the company with the help of a great staff of DJs, Producers, and Musicians. With an expanded scope that includes HiFi stereo equipment and all genres of vinyl records, TTL maintains the discerning approach of a DJ. We proudly operate out of the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Turntable Lab is highly selective with the product we carry, whether it's a high-end turntable or a 7" vinyl record. When you're buying a turntable, know that we've tested it out to make sure it's up to our standards. As you're browsing our record sections, know that thought and effort went into each selection.

"Turntable Lab not only cradled the current electronic / DJ revolution, it shaped the worldwide scene: from being a tastemaker to giving access to all aspiring artists internationally. I bought my first desktop workstations and sold my first creations from their online shop. The site has always been my TRUSTED GATEWAY to music, art, pop culture and snapback hats. I wouldn’t have my label if they didn’t give me a launching pad & influence for my art." - DIPLO
"TTL is the best. Gear experts, limited edition vinyl specialists, tasteful curators and makers of sonic memories. Vinyl family forever." - Laura Lee / Khruangbin
"As they've expanded, TTL has garnered the reputation of being an all-around 'tastemaker' with influence over musical, style, and design spheres of our global underground.
