Scribbled Arrow

1. Sony PS-LX310BT (Best Under $200) Offers two-speed options and does them rather well, offering consistent playback speed. Bluetooth connectivity for wireless connection is a real treat in this price range and should not be taken for granted.

2. Fluance RT82 (Best Under $300) The wood is made from solid wood and is a marvel in craftsmanship that comes fitted with capable isolation feet. The fact that the entire system is manually operated makes for a more personal experience.

3. Denon DP-400 (Best Balance) The built-in preamp is more than up to the task of amplifying the signal well enough to be heard properly by the amplifier itself. Offers the option to play records at three speeds with fine-tuning capabilities.

4. Fluance RT85 (Best Under $500) The capable isolated motor comes with an equally adept speed control mechanism that ensures as little wow and flutter as possible. The heavy acrylic platter on which the records reside does a stellar job of ensuring a stable sound rid.

5. Rega Planar 2 (Best Modern) Comes equipped with a particularly able EBLT belt drive for improved speed accuracy. Besides the plastic cover atop, there is also a wool dust cover that can be placed atop the whole thing to prevent dust seeping in through its orifices.

6. Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO (Best) The Ortofon 2M Red cartridge that this turntable comes fitted with is one of the most capable cartridges you are going to find on any turntable under $2000. Caters to all three of the main record speeds: 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm.
