You didn't think you'd see a fantastic Black Friday deal on a turntable this year, did you? Thankfully, while there have been deals galore on headphones, stereo speakers, TVs and soundbars, there are a handful of great deals on some five-star turntables to whet any vinyl fan's appetite.
This is our favourite turntable deal still live right now: a five-star Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo that's now available for £399 at Peter Tyson – that's a great saving of £100 from its standard £499 asking price, and the deal is available for various colour options, too.
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo
was £499 now £399 at Peter Tyson (save £100)
Pro-Ject's chic, no-frills turntable is simply a delight to listen to, earning a five-star review because of its rich, full-bodied sonic presentation. Want an expressive and engaging player at a discount? This is one of the best turntable deals around, with the new £399 deal price available for various colours options. Five stars
Deal also available at Electricshop, Amazon and Sevenoaks
In the market for a deck that costs well under £500, all while offering five-star performance in a pleasing, no-nonsense package? This could be the deal for you, with the exceptionally gifted Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo making a real case for itself thanks to a major chunk of cash off. We tested the Carbon Evo at £449, but the official price has been set at £499 for a while, so this £100 off is a worthwhile deal.
And we'd certainly urge you to snap one up if you get the chance. The Evo delighted us when we tested it a few years ago, especially for its rich, full-bodied tonality and expressive, engaging sound. You can assuredly find peppier, leaner rivals at this price (such as the Rega Planar 2), but anyone who values a real depth and meat to their music (and who doesn't?) should give the Evo a spin.
It's also really lovely to use and set up, benefiting from a lightweight and stiff tonearm and a ready-to-go assembly that takes mere moments to complete. That no-nonsense, slightly industrial design is rather appealing, and, unlike most other turntables, the Evo is available in various colourful finishes too.
Interested? You certainly should be, but know that we haven't seen stacks of turntable deals thus far during Black Friday week, so a £100 discount on a five-star model is one worth taking advantage of if you want a solid, well-performing deck.
