You want to be a DJ, but you don’t have the money for expensive turntables. The good news is that there are some great options out there for DJs on a budget. There are all sorts of great benefits to going with a record player over a CDJ, but there are also some drawbacks, which we’ll explore below. So what are you waiting for? Get your hands on the best turntables under 500 today!

Record players are pretty popular at the moment, but some models can be complicated to maintain. Sony PS-LX310BT is easy to clean and maintain, but some people may find it time-consuming.

Turntables are usually quite heavy, which means they are not ideal for moving around the house. The deck comes with a removable dust cover, vibration dampening slip mat, and adjustable counterweight system. It also features RCA cables for plugging directly into a stereo system and USB B cable, so the purchase is worth it.

Some of the most popular record players can be very expensive. Sony PS-LX310BT is not an industrial deck, but it does its job quite well at a reasonable price.

Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK

Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK Fully Automatic Wireless Belt-Drive Turntable (Black) (ATLP60XBTBK)
  • Power Source Type: DC. Motor: DC servo-controlled
  • Output Wattage: 3.00
  • Included Components: Turntable, Detachable RCA output cable (3.5 mm male to dual RCA male), 45 RPM adapter, Removable hinged dust cover

We believe that the Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK is a good option for those who want an affordable way to get into DJing. This DJ turntable has improved upon its predecessor, and you can now enjoy scratching and sampling right out of the box, with vinyl records (sold separately). It’s easy to set up, with step-by-step instructions and is available in black or white.

The design of this model has been thoughtfully updated from previous iterations. One of our favorite features is the LED lights, making it easier to see when starting your next mix. The deck also includes a 45 RPM adapter, while other brands require you to purchase one separately.

One downside of this model is that it isn’t the most sturdy one out there. The lightweight aluminum platter can make a clicking noise as you’re digging for your favorite tunes, which might be a distraction during a crucial mix. Also, it has an RCA cable but doesn’t come with a USB cable, which you might need if you use a computer to digitize your vinyl collection.

Overall, the Audio-Technica AT-LP60XBT-BK is a good choice for those looking for a starter DJ turntable. It provides excellent sound quality and has an easy setup and intuitive controls, rather than fancy features.

Pros:

– Excellent sound quality

– Easy setup

– Intuitive controls, rather than fancy features

Cons:

– Lightweight aluminum platter can make a clicking noise

– Doesn’t come with a USB cable; you might need one to use your PC for digitizing the vinyl collection

If you are a DJ, there is no doubt that you want to have the best equipment for your profession. It can be extremely costly and time-consuming to find all the materials needed to make a professional setup. However, if you know what you need and how much money you’re willing to spend, it will be more accessible than ever before.

This part contains information on what DJs should look for when they choose their turntables under 500 dollars. But there are so many on the market today- how do you know which ones will be right for your needs? Don’t worry- we’ve got what you need! Here is a list of five factors that should help narrow down your search.

Consider Your Needs

First and foremost, consider where and how often you will use your turntable. If it is only going to be used at home or in the studio, this might not be as important as if it will also be used out on gigs because you want a sturdy setup.

In the same way, if you plan on using it for mixing purposes in a studio, then features such as pitch control and responsiveness will be must-haves, while scratching in a club might just require the primary function of the platter. Placing your requirements from most important to least can help narrow down your search and save you a lot of cash.

Consider The Specs

Many features come with turntables, and their price can vary significantly based on what is included. It is always advised to consider the importance of each part, such as pitch control or line out, to avoid overspending on things you don’t need.

Some of the most important specs to consider are the ones that add on to a turntable’s core function, such as pitch control and line out. For example, you might be interested in a turntable with pitch control; however, if it does not have a USB output, then this feature will do nothing for you. In this case, it would be better to spend your money on a turntable that has both.

In addition, it is wise to look for an extended warranty because you want your investment to be protected in case of any defects or malfunctions. By looking at the specifications in the turntables under 500 list, you will tell how much money it is worth to you.

Consider The Brand

It is crucial to consider the brand when purchasing any product. Some companies are known for their quality products, while others produce shoddy goods that might not last long. It is best to research and find out what DJs think about the products made under the brand.

If they are known for making high-quality equipment, you can purchase their product without concern, but if they produce low-quality materials, it might be a waste of money and your trust in them as a company. It is essential to consider your requirements, the features of the turntable, and its price when choosing the best turntables under 500.

How Much Space Can You Afford To Give Up

Unless you are very serious about DJing, the chances are that you don’t have the kind of space that would allow for two full-sized turntables. Fortunately, many will fit in a smaller space, allowing you to start without worrying too much about how much room you’ll need. However, some turntables are so small that they might not be able to fit your needs.

When considering how much space you have available, think about what kind of setup you want and then purchase the best one for you. An excellent place to start would be with a smaller design, such as the Numark TTUSB. It is not very large and also allows for recording purposes.

How A DJ Uses The Turntable Is Important

After considering your needs, the specifications of the turntables under 500 dollars you are looking at purchasing, and its brand, it is essential to see how a DJ uses their turntable. If you plan to scratch and do a lot of physical DJing, you will want to have a turntable with excellent torque to stand up to your rigorous use.

In addition, you might need a heavier platter if you plan on using a slipmat because a lighter platter could stop very quickly when using a slipmat. Furthermore, if you do not plan on actually DJing, then the platter’s weight might not be as important to you because it will be more for decoration than actual functionality.

Having A Great Ear Is Important

It is advised to consider your own opinions and tastes to find which turntables under 500 dollars will best suit your needs. We encourage you to read the turntables review carefully and consider what DJs have to say about it before making a purchase. In addition, there are many products out there that will provide similar functions, but each might be different in its way.

You might not like the look of one turntable, but you might love the sound quality another provides. It is essential to consider all aspects of each turntable if you want to purchase the right one for you. To have a successful DJ set, many things will need to be considered before buying the best turntables under 500.

You should find out which features you need to make your DJing perfect, consider the brand and how well they are known for producing quality equipment, and consider what kind of space you have available in your home or event location. By considering these factors, you will purchase a high-quality turntable that suits your needs.

Considering brand and other factors can help you narrow down your search and save you a lot of time and money.
