In the market for a great entry-level turntable? You’re in luck. There are a bunch of deals on our favorite turntables by Pro-Ject, Fluance and Yamaha. Some deals run for just one day. Others will run for a good chunk of this holiday season. Check ’em out below.

Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB

Pro-Ject’s T1 series was released in 2019 and it’s designed for vinyl lovers who don’t want to pay more than $500. The Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB is the most premium turntable in the T1 line. It has a built-in phono preamp and electronic speed controls for both 33 and 45 rpm.

Deal runs from 11/29/19 to 12/02/2019.

Pro-Ject T1

The Pro-Ject T1 is a slight step down from the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB turntable. The big difference is that it does not have a phono preamp, which might be a good thing for audiophiles who want to customize the machine. Also, it doesn’t have electronic speed controls; you have to manually move the belt to change speeds.

Deal runs from 11/29/19 to 12/02/2019.

Pro-Ject Essential III

The Pro-Ject Essential III has been around for a few years and it’s hugely popular. As far as the actual turntable, it’s pretty comparable to the new Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB. The Pro-Ject Essential III has a better tonearm and better cartridge, according to Discogs Blog, but doesn’t have electronic speed controls. (Note: this is not the Pro-Ject Essential III Phono, which has an onboard phono preamp.)

Deal runs from 11/29/19 to 12/02/2019.

Fluance RT80

The RT80 is essentially a cheaper and more affordable version of Fluance’s RT81. It has a hollow body, a less premium cartridge and it comes with a felt mat instead of the RT81’s rubber mat.

Deal runs from 12/02/19 to 12/08/19.

Yamaha MusicCast Vinyl 500

This turntable has built-in Wi-Fi and it’s neat because it allows you to play your records in a few different ways. You can go the traditional route and hook it up to an amplifier and some bookshelf speakers, or you can stream the vinyl’s audio to your various MusicCast-enabled speakers, soundbar or receiver; this way you can get music playing throughout the whole house.

Deal runs through this holiday season.
