Organize your expanding vinyl collection with these stylish wood dividers

A few weeks ago, we showed you a Kickstarter project for the Wax Stacks vinyl storage system (which is now fully funded, by the way). Now we’d like to point you toward some top-notch vinyl organization tools that would make the perfect companion to a Wax Stacks bin, or any other vinyl storage solution, for that matter. Check out this suite of typographic wood dividers from Kate Koeppel Design.

The more your record collection grows, the harder it gets to find the LP you want — where did that Lou Reed Transformer record disappear to? With the right set of dividers, organizing and finding a record can be a breeze, no matter how many records you’ve got stockpiled away in your listening room, or how many licorice pizzas you pile on to your library.

Kate Koeppel offers a number of divider options in multiple styles and sizes, whether you want to organize alphabetically, by genre, or both. Hell, you could even go auto-biographical ala High Fidelity, so you can tell people how you got from Deep Purple to Howlin’ Wolf in 25 moves.

Koeppel’s outfit is based in San Francisco, and employs a team of “organization-obsessed craftswomen” who source their supplies exclusively from California-based businesses. Koeppel herself is an avid collector, and wanted the very best, most stylish solution possible. The dividers — over 100 options in all — are laser cut to exacting specifications.

Koeppel’s designer wooden wonder-tools aren’t limited strictly to wrangling wax, either. The studio also offers organizational implements for CDs/DVDs/Blu-ray discs and books as well. Whatever style you need, Koeppels got it to help any collectibles enthusiast spend less time digging through milk crate after milk crate, or deeply packed shelves, and more time enjoying the beautiful bounty of your favorite bits of tangible media.

Rebirth of cool: Is vinyl ready for a second wind, or just a fad?

Vinyl records are in the midst of a surprising renaissance, fueled not only by millennial nostalgia but by high-tech turntables. As CD and digital music sales continue to decline due to online streaming services like Spotify, CNBC reports that vinyl LP sales increased to 13 million in 2016 -- their highest level since 1991.

Now, an Austrian start-up named Rebeat Innovations is hoping to give the venerable medium itself a high-tech boost with an innovation it’s calling "high-definition vinyl."

Turntable giants Crosley may mostly be known for their cheap, suitcase-style devices -- a gateway tool for a huge number of modern vinyl listeners -- but the company has been increasingly creating products for more discerning ears.

This week, the company announced a new mid-tier model it calls the C6. A simple belt-driven deck, the new model is aimed at the ears (and eyes) of those looking to ditch their all-in-one turntables for something a bit more elegant. The C6 comes in three beautiful colorways: Shiny black, racing car red, or walnut veneer.
