Cyber Monday record player deals 2021: what to expect
The Cyber Monday record player deals are fast approaching, dropping officially on Monday 29 November. But those deals aren’t isolated to just a single day. In our experience, some of the best deals start way earlier, from around mid-October. If you’re looking to drop some wax on a new deck, this is the page to bookmark for the latest news, and the best early deals and discounts.
If you want to dive right in on a fantastic deal well ahead of Black Friday, we’d recommend heading straight to Amazon US, who are offering $60 off the Music Hall usb-1 turntable, dropping the price to $190.32. If you’re in the UK, there’s a tasty £40 saving to be made on the excellent Sony PS-HX500 turntable at Currys.

When do the Cyber Monday record player deals start?
This year’s Cyber Monday is taking place on November 29. Once an America-only event, the rise in internet shopping habits in particular means that just about everyone gets involved these days. It’s a day of discounts that was traditionally given over to the more techy side of things. That includes top savings on everything from Apple AirPods and headphones for music, through to Bluetooth speakers and everything in-between.
Cyber Monday follows Cyber Weekend and the Black Friday record player deals on Friday 26 November.
Cyber Monday record player deals: What to expect
Cyber Monday record player deals are going to be everywhere around November 29 and we’re expecting turntable deals galore from audio masters such as Sony, Rega, Audio-Technica and more – especially on the Sony PS-HX500, Rega Planar 1 and the Audio-Technica AT-LP3, which all place highly in our best budget turntables guide. We’re also keen to see deals on the formidable Technics SL-1500C.
It’s also worth keeping an eye out for lesser-known brands who still make seriously rated gear, like ION and House Of Marley.
Deals can drop at any time, day or night. Some are stock limited, some may only stick around for a matter of hours, while others will extend well beyond Cyber Monday. If you have a specific product in mind and you see it on sale, we suggest picking it up straight away to avoid disappointment.
