#4 Audio-Technica AT-LP7

Although the Audio-Technica AT-LP7 is more expensive, it’s still a high-quality turntable with a modern black design. As a company, Audio-Technica has been around since 1962, so it’s been manufacturing high-end phonograph cartridges and turntables for decades. 

The company tapped this design experience when creating the AT-LP7, which offers a fully-manual, belt-drive turntable that utilizes the company’s superior VM520EB Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge with a 10 g AT-HS10 headshell and 0.3 by 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus. The headhsell attaches to a J-shaped tone arm (with a gimbal suspension system) that’s faithfully based on the classic A-T models from the 1960s and 1970s. 

The AT-LP7’s anti-resonance platter is constructed from 22 mm-thick polyoxymethylene and is driven by a sensor-motor that provides accurate platter rotation speed at 33 1/3 or 45 RPM. The unit has a built in preamp and can be connected to other home stereo components. 

The AT-LP7’s design and construction quality make it an ideal turntable for any audiophile looking to truly immerse themselves in the sound from their favorite vinyl records. Of course, you’ll want to pair this high-end turntable with top-quality stereo speakers and other home stereo components—all connected using the turntable’s dual RCA (male) outputs.

#5 Fluance RT82

The Fluance RT82 has everything you need except an onboard preamp. If you already own a receiver or amplifier with a dedicated phono in, this model is for you. The Fluance’s thoughtful inclusions impressed me greatly. The Fluance’s features such as an auto-start/off feature, adjustable feet, and even a bubble-level were all designed with the user in view. This high-quality turntable featured one of the most enjoyable sounds, with lots of insight into recordings and a healthy kick.

#6 Audio-Technica AT-LP60X

The Audio-Technica AT-LP60X belt-driven turntable, which is affordable, is a good choice for those who are just starting to play vinyl or looking for a turntable to gift as a present. It can also be operated fully automatically. It offers a limited upgrade path that allows users to choose between line or phono outputs. This allows them to add their preamp. This automatic turntable option is a great deal.

#7 Pro-Ject T1

The Pro-Ject demonstrates how spending a little more can yield great results. It really can bring out your best records in terms sound quality. It boasts a refined treble, a detailed, rich midrange, and a smooth bass. It looks beautiful with its glass platter — second only to Audio-Technica in appearance, but the Pro-Ject is better. The T1’s only problem is that the switch is too deep on the left side rather than the front. To remove the tonearm, you will need to use a little upward force. T
