The vinyl record player you want may be a little harder to come by, but with the help of a vinyl record shop, you can buy one right now for about $15,000.
This is according to a new infographic released by the U.S. Census Bureau.
In 2016, the median household income for households making less than $20,000 was $35,000, according to the U of C’s Institute for the Study of Labour.
A person making $20 million would be worth about $4,000 more than someone making $30,000 in the same year.
While the median income for those earning more than $100,000 per year is $65,000 according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, the average vinyl record purchase would cost $5,600 to $8,600, depending on the seller.
The price would go up slightly for records that were made in Japan or Europe.

The company’s website states that it is “the world’s largest vinyl retailer” and has stores in 15 countries.
In the U, its locations include stores in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Detroit, Michigan.
While Vinyl Recys stores are typically located in urban areas, it’s not uncommon for a shop to be located in a suburban or rural area, according the company.
The vinyl store you go to could be located right next to a grocery store, school, office, office park, etc.
If you don’t have enough money to pay for the record, Vinyl Recycle is offering a $25 credit to people who shop online.
In exchange, you will receive a digital download of a single album, as well as a free digital download when you purchase another vinyl record.
