Turntable Boxing Day deals?

My turntable died a few months back and I’m looking for a replacement. Any deals or any turntables that you would recommend? Max budget would be about $450-$500 if possible.

Note: If you ever play 45s, the above turntable might be a hassle because the speed has to be manually changed by moving the belt instead of using a switch.


I would try Canuck Audio Mart for a used turntable (Ontario, <$500):

Might look at Audio Connexion. They have some budget Elipson TTs not in the mass market style.

I can confirm the belt on Pro-Ject belt can be a pain, but only if it slips off the platter. Maybe it's just me but, I have. a hell of a time getting it back on.

I keep waiting for the Fluance RT85 to go on sale. Never seen it discounted.
