House of Marley Stir It Up
This upgraded model looks great and is sustainably made from solid bamboo, recycled plastic and aluminium. It connects wirelessly to speakers or headphones via Bluetooth.
Clearaudio Concept MM
If you’re looking for the ultimate in sound quality, this multiple award-winner is the one to splash out on. It’s much simpler than many of its top-end rivals, as most variables are set for you at the factory.
Audio Technica AT-LP5X
With a particularly good sound for the price, the new AT-LP5X is precise and well-built, despite its plastic base. It has a USB connection so you can transfer your vinyl onto a computer.
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Evo
With a “warm and detail-rich sound”, this is a great all-round model that lets you switch between 33 and 45rpm records at the touch of a button. It’s easy to set up, but it requires a separate preamp.
Rega Planar 3 Turntable incl. Elys 2 Cartridge
The reliable Planar 3 has been a top record player since the 1970s, but owing to a new tonearm and cartridge, its sound quality has been raised to a new level.
