I’m looking to buy my other half a new record player as a surprise. I have no idea where to start. He has a basic one already. We have a sonos play 1. The advise I’ve been given is to get a sonos play 5 and a record player which links into this as the sonos will act as the speakers without needing an amplifier etc. With a decent player I’m looking at around £800 which is a lot of money. I’m willing to pay this but is this my only option? I’d appreciate any advise please.

There's some good articles on turntables on the Discogs Blog:

The Wirecutter is also really good for reviews (but doesn't drown you in details unless you want to). Recommended reading: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-turntable/

Finally there's a lot of resources on Gearogs. You can browse turntables and look at ones for sale

I don't know the Sonos, but I imagine you'd need a turntable with a built in pre-amp (or buy the pre-amp separately).
