The best turntable deals 2022

Whether you're looking for your first budget record player or are a long-standing vinyl fan hankering after a more premium turntable – an upgrade, even – there may well be a deal on this page with your name on it.

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 still get, featuring the likes of Pro-Ject, Sony and Technics...

Best record player deals

Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth was £249 (opens in new tab)

Sony PS-LX310BT Bluetooth was £249 now £229 at Amazon (save £20) (opens in new tab)
Here, Sony has generously given us a ‘plug and play’ fully automatic deck, including a phono stage, thrown in Bluetooth and priced it at the low end of the market. Five stars

Technics SL1500C was £899 (opens in new tab)

Technics SL1500C was £899 now £799 at Sevenoaks (save £100) (opens in new tab)
One of the best sounding we’ve heard at this price. If you’re after a great sounding but fuss-free record player below a grand, the SL-1500C is a great buy – especially now it's £100 off. Five stars

Audio-Technica AT-LP5x USB turntable was £379 (opens in new tab)

Audio-Technica AT-LP5x USB turntable was £379 now £319 at Richer Sounds (save £60) (opens in new tab)
Audio-Technica’s original AT-LP5 turntable was a winner. This LP5x model now comes with an easier to fit cartridge, a built-in phono stage for both MC and MM and it even sounds a little cleaner than its predecessor. Winner.

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon was £369 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon was £369 now £299 at Amazon (save £70) (opens in new tab)
The Debut Carbon sounds clear, detailed and displays a fine sense of rhythm. It’s made of carbon fibre, there’s a weighty metal platter, a felt mat, and the Ortofon 2M Red moving-magnet cartridge. A great package at a great price.

Pro-Ject Juke Box E:  was £499 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Juke Box E: was £499 now £419 at Sevenoaks (save £80) (opens in new tab)
This record player is something of a rarity. It’s an all-in-one system that demands very few compromises, given its price. The deck is tricked out with an Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, amplification and Bluetooth receiver. The features are on point and so is the performance, making this deal difficult to ignore. Also at Richer Sounds (opens in new tab). Five stars

Pro-Ject Primary E  was £199 (opens in new tab)

Pro-Ject Primary E was £199 now £119 at Richer Sounds (save £80 (opens in new tab) - exclusive to VIP customers, free sign-up)
One of the best budget record players ever, Pro-Ject's Primary E is a current (and multiple) What Hi-Fi? Award-winner. Clear detail, even tonal balance and a spirited sense of drive and momentum make this bare-bones deck a great option for vinyl fans on a tight budget. A great £80 saving makes it an even better budget buy.

Lenco L-85  was £119 (opens in new tab)

Lenco L-85 was £119 now £80 at Robert Dyas (save £39) (opens in new tab)
This is the cheapest deal we've seen on this plug-and-play deck that's perfect for vinyl beginners. You get USB recording, a built-in phono stage and it's a surprisingly balanced and likeable sound, especially with vocals.
