We’ve all went through the phase of being a beginner DJ without much money in our pockets. Those controllers, speakers, DJ mixers and other equipment for our passion is an investment and that doesn’t come cheap. But we won’t let that stop us from chasing our dream, from practicing our craft and enjoying the art of music.

So today, I’ve listed the top 5 budget-friendly vinyl turntables available in the market today. Although computer based mixing is commonly done, I love adding a vinyl turntable in the mix for a more traditional and organic feel to the music – trust me.

For those penny-pinches that are just getting started in the DJ world, here’s are a few decent, yet more affordable, ones you should consider.

1. Stanton T92USB Turntable

The Stanton T92USB allows you to dwell in digital and traditional DJing. It’s a 3-speed turntable that has durable aluminum casing. It includes a high-torque motor and a Stanton cartridge that you can upgrade by simply getting a better cartridge like the Audio Technica AT440MLa.

You can use it for both RCA and USB connectivity so you can use it in either a traditional or more modern setup. The Audacity software also comes with it.
