What’s the best turntable?

There isn’t one best turntable, the best turntable is the best one you can afford.

Aim for something heavy, well built, preferably well over $1000AUD new. Alternatively, you’ll get better performance in most cases from a second-hand classic turntable from the 1970s and ’80s. Nothing truly great is light-weight though, despite what some manufacturers might say. This isn’t an opinion, it’s fact, hard as it might be to accept!
