$55.88

Isolation pucks sit under the legs of speakers, turntables, guitar amps and the like to soak up unwanted vibrations and make everything sound better. Just make sure the pucks you pick are big enough for the device they'll be under.

$31.97

A slipmat is a great gift for a turntable owner, because unlike some other cheap gifts, they'll use it. Tasked with keeping the turntable platter free of dust when it's not in use, a nice leather slipmat does the same job as the one that came with their turntable, but with way more style.

GRADO amazon.com
$109.02

These killer headphones skip out on flashy features to land under $100 and combine great sound with a cool industrial design that looks like it's straight out of the 1940s. Better yet, they're made in the USA - Brooklyn, to be precise. 

Headphone Stand

$59.00

Every pair of nice headphones deserves a good perch so they don't get thrown in a drawer, draped over a computer monitor or tossed on a chair. A headphone stand won't necessarily turn your pet audiophile into a neat freak, but it will help clean up their listening station.

$59.95

A headshell is a part that attaches to a turntable's tonearm and holds the phono cartridge in place. The higher-quality, more advanced headshells do a better job at eliminating resonance and distortion, and the better the audio is going to sound. "Jelco headshells are crafted pieces of perfection. Assembled by hand in Japan, every part is high-end including their famed headshell wires" said Peter Hahn, owner of Turntable Lab, a popular New York-based hi-fi shop. "Sadly, we recently found out their factory is closing permanently. After we heard the news, we were lucky enough to get one last batch of our own TTL customized headshells. These are the last of them."
