Sony HX500 USB Turntable
Save over $200: The Sony HX500 turntable is kind of a landmark product. Before it was released in 2016, USB turntables had a reputation for being pretty terrible because, as JP Torres, Sony’s Audio Expert for Home Entertainment & Sound (HES), told me at the time, most USB turntables had pretty terrible DACs, software complications and they just didn’t have many recording capabilities. Basically, they hadn’t lived up to audiophile expectations, who wanted them to play vinyl while simultaneously copying that high-quality audio into a digital format. The Sony HX500 was one of the USB turntables that changed that perception. And you can now buy it for under $400. Get it on Amazon or Best Buy.

Made from tough durable fabric, using weather-resistant zippers, the Base Camp is designed to take on more than just a weekend. — Bryan Campbell
