Looking for an affordable record player/ripper? Lenco has you covered...

In our experience, Lenco’s turntables have been rather a mixed bag. But we liked the £120 L-85, so are optimistic for the brand’s latest budget offerings: L-30 (£100) and L-400 (£200).

Both feature USB outputs for digitising your vinyl and, more typically, run both 33rpm and 45rpm speeds.

The L-30 (pictured) is a semi-automatic belt-drive deck with line-level output - so it can plug straight into an amplifier or active speakers. It's available in a choice of wood or black finishes.

The L-400, meanwhile, uses a direct-drive mechanism and features a built-in switchable pre-amplifier and an Audio Technica moving magnet cartridge.
