Jukeboxes are mostly known as retro, music-playing devices that allow you to play any song from their self-contained media selection. So, instead of having to listen to a whole record or album, you could listen to a single song from your whole music collection.
While our music playing capabilities have vastly changed (some may say improved), modern jukeboxes are still a great way to get that retro vibe, while enjoying some major technological advancements. These upgrades can include built-in CD systems or record players, AM/FM radio capability, Bluetooth receivers for wireless streaming your own collection and remote controls for ease of use.
Below are a few jukeboxes that come in a variety of price points and options according to your needs. In addition to the modern upgrades listed above, these jukeboxes have tricked out speaker systems including tweeters and subwoofers for excellent sound, and have auxiliary inputs for mic and audio play as well. In keeping with the retro theme, you can also enjoy these authentic and stylish reproductions as they come complete with wooden vaneer casings and color-changing LED lights, making for an all-over nostalgic experience.
