Top 10 Best Record Players

Vinyl is having a resurgence. Sales reached 1.3 million in the UK last year and this week, Tesco became the first UK supermarket to stock the format with the release of Iron Maiden’s The Book of Souls (though we’d still prefer to shop in our local independent record store). Specialist players are now readily available – and there are a plethora of options; from retro-styled ones to make a statement to slick-looking, super-modern machines.

These all-in-one vinyl-playing stereos avoid the messy world of turntables, pre-amps, belt or non-belt driven machines and actuators. Some come with CD players and radio tuners, others with USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity to play your digitally stored music. We had a listen to a range to bring you user-friendly gadgets that offer great sound in a good-looking package – for a fair price.

1. Crosley Keepsake Deluxe: £147.66, amazon.co.uk

This one’s for fans of retro-looking players and it’s super-simple to use. With just two switches – on/off and volume – it’s hard to go wrong, and the line in and line out  allows you to play your mp3 player or connect the turntable to extra speakers.

2. UO X Dansette Bermuda: £250, urbanoutfitters.com

With classic sixties’ styling, this free-standing machine – a collaboration between Urban Outfitters and Crosley – is a cool piece of furniture in its own right. It’s an easy-to-use turntable, and can also play music from your MP3 player. Sound-wise, it’s most effective in a bedroom or smaller sitting rooms. The legs are removable.

This sleek-looking, all-in-one turntable is one of the best-sounding and idiot-proof players we found. Just pull the arm over the record and you’re good to go. We’d suggest using the internal speakers over the external output system, though.
