Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT + speakers: Save $85
When you decide to go down the Bluetooth turntable route, it's important to also figure out what Bluetooth gear you need - whether that's headphones or a decent set of speakers. This bundle makes that decision easy by adding a pair of Microlab Pro1BT Professional Bookshelf Active Powered Monitor Speakers into the mix. The only decision left is to work out which record you're going to play on it first. This package would usually set you back $364.60, but today you can take it home for just $279.99.

ION Audio Max LP turntable: Was $89.99, now $69.99
We expect this Amazon Black Friday deal to go down a storm with music fans. The ION Audio Max LP ticks a lot of boxes and is now available for just $69.99 in the US, and if you're in the UK, you can also grab one for the reduced price of £62.

Victrola Vintage Bluetooth: Was $59.99, now $52.65
This vintage-look suitcase-style Bluetooth turntable is great value.

Fluance RT80 Turntable: Was $299.99, now $199.99
You can't argue with $100 off a quality deck at Walmart. Fluance is well-known for packing a lot into its budget turntables, and the RT80 HiFi is no exception. The deck comes complete with a high performance Audio-Technica cartridge for added clarity, while the diamond-tipped stylus improves tracking on your records.

Crosley Voyager Turntable: Was $99.95, now $49.95
Best Buy have cut 50 bucks from the price of the neat, three speed, portable Voyager turntable. This would make a great gift for someone taking their first steps into vinyl and at this price, it’s a steal. Also available in white.

Not only that, but it can also connect with your computer via USB so you can digitize your wax collection.

More great Black Friday offers

When do the Black Friday record player deals start?

This year's Black Friday is set to take place on November 26 – and is always held the day after Thanksgiving in the US. Once an America-only event, the rise in internet shopping habits in particular means that just about everyone gets involved these days. 

The Black Friday weekend (as deals tend to keep going over several days) is followed by the Cyber Monday record player deals on November 29 – a day of discounts that was traditionally given over to the more techy side of things. That includes top savings on everything from Apple AirPods and headphones for music, through to the loudest Bluetooth speakers and everything in-between.

Black Friday record player deals: What to expect

Black Friday record player deals are going to be everywhere around November 26 and we're expecting turntable deals galore from audio masters such as Sony, Rega, Audio-Technica and more – especially on the Sony PS-HX500, Rega Planar 1 and the Audio-Technica AT-LP3, which all place highly in our best budget turntables guide. We're also keen to see deals on the formidable Technics SL-1500C.

It's also worth keeping an eye out for lesser-known brands who still make seriously rated gear, like ION and House Of Marley.

Deals can drop at any time, day or night. Some are stock limited, some may only stick around for a matter of hours, while others will extend well beyond Cyber Weekend. If you have a specific product in mind and you see it on sale, we suggest picking it up straight away to avoid disappointment. 

Spotting the best Black Friday record player deals

Here at Louder, we'll keep you up to date on the best Black Friday record player deals we spot, bringing you the best products at the best prices, right here on this page. 

But what should you be looking for as you shop? We recommend first finding the original RRP of the turntable you're looking for. Then you'll be able to see at a glance just how much of a deal you're actually getting. 

Some record player deals will be cut by just a handful of pounds or dollars, while others could be reduced in price dramatically.

Finding the best Black Friday record player deals

Finding some of the best Black Friday turntable deals can take a bit of leg work. However, here at Louder, we're going to hand-pick our favourite bargains from a range of sites. In the past, sites including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Very, Best Buy, Walmart and AV Online have all chopped chunks of change from their turntable stock, so we're expecting big things from them again this year. Keep Louder bookmarked so you don't miss any of the action.

Black Friday record player deals: How to prepare

With so many Black Friday turntable deals coming down the pipe, to grab the top choice bargains, it really does pay to do a little prep work before you wade into the sales. We recommend creating a list of the record players you're on the hunt for along with a list of backup options... just in case that shiny bit of kit you're after fails to materialise in this year's Black Friday record player deals. 

Look out for price drops on turntables such as Rega's excellent Planar 3, plus the Technics SL-1500C and the Cambridge Audio Alva T. If we see something special, we’ll let you know right here. If you want to do any more research, we'd recommend checking out our dedicated buyer's guides, below.

Of course, Black Friday is also the time to pick up other turnable-related hardware, like the best headphones for vinyl, or the best speakers for your hi-fi system. 

Black Friday music deals: Will there be stock issues?

The news headlines over the past few months have suggested that some products could be harder to get hold of this year due to stock shortages and the ongoing issue regarding a general lack of HGV drivers to transport goods.

While it’s worth keeping in mind that some items could be held up in as a result of these situations, we would still advise pressing the button on a great deal if you see it – after all, a certain price drop may not be repeated and some online retailers may also be limited in stock.

We’d also recommend grabbing a bargain earlier rather than later if you spot one to avoid any disappointment. Here at Louder, we're keeping our eye on things – and if previous Black Friday music deals are anything to go by, we expect to see some early offers land before the big sales weekend.
