From entry-level decks at budget prices to more premium offerings delivering more serious sound quality, there are a handful of excellent turntable deals on excellent turntables available right now.

You can choose from bare-bones turntables that require a phono stage-toting amplifier or ones with them built-in. Some have Bluetooth, allowing you to essentially play your records through your headphones or wireless speakers, while others have the ability to connect to your computer and rip your records to digital files.

Here's our pick of the best turntable deals you can get, featuring the likes of Pro-Ject, Sony and Technics...
