The time has come: Cyber Monday 2019 is almost upon us.

For fans of wax, we're expecting plenty of great Cyber Monday vinyl deals to be had in the lead up to the main event, which has effectively already started. 

But if you're looking to give your turntable an upgrade so you can hear all that vinyl in the fidelity it deserves, Cyber Monday could be the ideal opportunity to get your hands on a top notch new record player, too.

Perhaps you've been keeping an eye on one of the cut-price decks we recommend in our best budget turntables or best turntables guides? Or maybe you fancy dropping the needle (and a bit more cash) on something a little more upmarket? Whatever you’re after, chances are you'll find a deal of some sort among the labyrinth of Cyber Monday record player deals due to drop this year. 

But all that choice can feel a little overwhelming. Well, that's where we come in. Our experts have done the hard work, and uncovered the best deals around.

Our top Cyber Monday turntable picks

Yamaha - MusicCast Turntable: $699.99 $499.99 at Best Buy
Yamaha’s new belt-drive turntable is much more than the aluminium platter, tonearm and moving magnet cartridge than meet the eye. Part of Yamaha’s MusicCast product family, the MusicCast turntable can stream the vinyl it’s spinning wirelessly to any MusicCast speaker (or speakers) in the house over wi-fi.View Deal

Fluance RT81: $349.99 $206.96 at Walmart
Our sister site TechRadar was so impressed with this turntable they crowned it "easily the best starter turntable you can buy". They were also swayed by its "gorgeous design" and "convenient features", which they felt confident "take the headaches and stress out of setting up a turntable for the first time".View Deal

Crosley - Turntable in Mahogany: $399.99 $258.99 at Best Buy
While Crosley have been panned in the past for their part in the turntable-in-a-suitcase revolution (you'll notice we've not included any of those all-in-one machines here, for good reason) this turntable makes good on all that: this is a great machine for the price, and great for those looking to get into vinyl properly without splashing crazy cash.View Deal

Where can I find the best Cyber Monday record player deals?

Deals will be everywhere across Cyber Monday weekend. We’d recommend heading straight for Amazon, Argos and Currys in the UK, and Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy if you live in the US. Traditionally they have been the best places to pick up a great record player Cyber Monday bargain.

If you can’t be bothered searching the swathes of deals online, this page is the one thing you should bookmark. We’ll have deal hunters working round the clock and posting their best discoveries right here. While you’re bookmarking, why not lock our Cyber Monday music deals page into your browser too?

A quick word of advice: if you come across an epic deal on a turntable, some rad headphones or a killer piece of vinyl, don’t sit on it for too long as these deals can often be stock- or time-limited. Most retailers have foolproof returns policies too, so you can always take a punt on a good deal and return it later. 

What Cyber Monday record player deals can I expect?

Whichever record player you’re after, it’s likely you’ll find a good deal on it somewhere around Cyber Monday.

If you’rehave a smaller budget in mind, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Sony PS-HX500, Rega Planar 1 and the Audio-Technica AT-LP3, which all place highly in our best budget turntables guide. If you find any of these with even just a few pounds/dollars off, you’ll be laughing.

If you have a little more cash to splash, then Cyber Monday is definitely the time to treat yourself to a more upmarket deck. We’re hoping to see price drops on Rega's excellent Planar 3, plus the Technics SL-1500C and the Cambridge Audio Alva T. If we do, we’ll let you know right here, first.
