5 Best turntables under $200



Want to buy a budget turntable but not sure which one suits your needs?

If yes, don’t worry. Help is just a short read away.

In this post, we’ll look at the five top turntables under $200.

So, let’s dive in straightaway.

  • Stanton T62 ($179)

With this DJ-focused turntable in your kitty, you can manipulate tunes any way you like. Thanks to direct-drive motor and a high-torque, the T62 switches speeds easily. Plus, it comes with a remarkable pitch control fader that allows you to adjust pitch and tempo up to +/- 10%.

This affordable deck features a dynamically-balanced tonearm to improve tracking and make scratching amazingly easier. It also comes with 2 start/stop buttons for battle orientation or mix.  

Moreover, at this price point, the T62 offers the best and purest playback. No other similarly-priced turntable comes even closer to match its sound quality.

  • Crosley C100A-SI ($179)

This belt-driven turntable comes with amazing options. Along with an easy-to-use switch speed control, the C100A features inbuilt phono preamp, NP5 diamond stylus and a practical S-shaped tonearm.

The C100A is not automatic. All the same, it gives you great value for your money and is among the best under $200 turntables on the market.

  • Denon DP-29F ($150)

Just like the previous entry on the list, DP-29F is also belt-driven and comes with built-in phono preamp. Its dynamically balanced tonearm is just as good as that of any other turntable below $200. However, its Denon DSN-82 moving magnet cartridge is a big advantage. Other desirable features include an easy-to-use switch speed control and an ultra-quiet DS servo motor.

  • Sony PS LX300 ($128)

While Sony is as big a name as any in the electronics industry, even its die-hard fans agree that they’ve not exactly made a huge mark in the turntable niche.

That said, all Sony turntables till date have one strong quality—ease of use. And PS LX300 is no different.

Belt-driven and fully automatic, the LX300 features a built-in phono preamp and a pre-fitted cartridge. However, compare to others in the list, the LX300’s cartridge is quite weak.

The good news is that LX300 has remarkably better USB capabilities than others. So if you plan to digitalize your ever-growing vinyl collection, look no further than the LX300.

  • Audio-Technica AT-LP60 ($99)

Those who want to spend not more than a hundred dollars for their first turntable may want to check out the AT-LP60.

Audio-Technica has been around for many years now and is known to dish out quality turntables. The AT-LP60 is automatic (fully) and belt-driven. It also has most other standard features you find in budge turntables: an inbuilt preamp and a pre-fitted cartridge. 

If you’re dipping a tentative toe in the vinyl territory and want a super-affordable turntable, this might be just perfect for you.
