What Hifi awards best turntables!

Rega Planar 3/Elys 2

Best Turntable £500 - £1000

Rega has been developing the Planar 3 for decades and there’s no doubt the product has steadily improved over the years.

We think this new version is the best RP3 yet, adding extra servings of clarity, precision and insight to an already musical sound. Want the best value on the market? This is it.

Pro-Ject Primary E

Best turntable under £200

With the likes of £100-odd Lenco, Audio Technica and Crosley turntables knocking about, you can spend a bit less to get your first turntable.

But sometimes it’s worth remembering what Victorian art critic John Ruskin once said: “it's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little”.

For purists at the head of the beginner’s vinyl revival path who have a £150 budget and aren’t fussed about features such as record ripping and automatic operation, the Pro-Ject Primary E could be just the ticket.

Rega Planar 1

Best turntable £200 - £500

In these times bereft of certainty, there is far worse you could do than to close the curtains, settle in your favourite armchair and spin a few records on the new Rega Planar 1.

Rega Planar 6/Ania

Best turntable over £1000

After a few days spent with the Planar 6/Ania, we’re confident the extra care required in system-matching is worth it.

The Rega Planar 6/Ania’s masterful handle on rhythm and subtle detail is better than before, with refinement adding to the deck’s customarily musical and insightful performance.

We’re impressed with Rega’s new level of performance. The Planar 6’s balanced, mature presentation is something you’ll appreciate the more you listen to it. So get listening.
