The Pro-Ject Elemental is one of the most basic and easy to set-up turntables we've ever come across. But that doesn't mean it doesn't deliver.

This is a very talented, and capable turntable with good build quality for the price. It's the best budget turntable on the market.

If you want a turntable you can plug straight into your amp and play, with the added bonus of a USB output, it's tough to find anything better at this kind of money.

The fact it sounds great is just the final reason you need to take one for a spin.

We've long been fans of Clearaudio's Concept turntable package. It's a thoroughly sorted, easy-to-own package with tremendous sound that has poise and pace to spare, combining punch, extension and tonal variation in equal measure.

It is an outstanding product, and took the title of Best turntable £800+ at the 2015 What Hi-Fi? Awards.
