Sony has been a leader in home and personal audio for decades. I’ve been listening on Sony products for most of my life (I even owned a bright yellow Sony Sport Walkman years ago). My taste in music has changed (slightly) but Sony quality has not. However, the range of Sony audio products is huge; you may have trouble deciding which one to get for your home next!. Well, since September is Home Theatre Month at Best Buy, we think it’s a great time to give Canadians a chance to win some of the fantastic Sony audio products that may be on their wish-lists. We have two contests offering Sony Audio prizes in progress this month. In this contest, I have one combination prize of a Sony receiver and turntable. See below for the link to our other contests at Best Buy.

Which audio component is next on your wish-list

In life we all have to make choices. Some choices are harder than others. For example, you may have a hard time deciding which of the recent viral shark songs you like best: Baby Shark or Reggae Shark (I’m leaning toward Baby Shark myself; I can’t help but smile when I watch it!).


Think for a second about your home audio system and the components that it’s lacking. Which new audio component is first on your list? You may have a stack of records that you can’t play, so a turntable may be next. Alternatively, you may realize that a turntable will be useless without a great receiver and amplifier to carry the signal from the turntable to your speakers. Just like trying to decide which of the above videos you like best, it’s a dilemma!

Which Sony audio component do you need in your home

In his review of this receiver and turntable, Brad Moon discusses that someone just getting into vinyl or wanting to get an entry level player for his old LPs would be well served by the Sony PS-LX300USB turntable. It’s easy to setup and use, and has the added benefit of USB connectivity so you can connect it to a PC and convert your vinyl recordings to MP3. He also pointed out that pairing this turntable with Sony’s STR-DH190 receiver is a solid choice. This receiver comes with Bluetooth support so you can stream music from your phone through the receiver.

Now, if you had to choose, which one would you prefer to get first for your home: the turntable or the receiver. One lucky person will not have to worry—the person who wins this contest will get both!


Entering this contest is easy, but you can only enter once. In a comment below this article, tell us which you would prefer for your home: the Sony turntable or the Sony receiver and why. If you want, you can also weigh in on the other tough choice discussed above: Reggae Shark or Baby Shark.


At the end of the contest we will select one winner to receive both Sony audio components: the Sony PS-LX300USB turntable and the Sony STR-DH190 receiver.

This contest will run from Sept 12th until Sept 25th.

Remember you can only enter once. However, you can tell your friends and family about this awesome contest. You could even strike a deal saying, “let’s split the prize and whoever wins gets first choice.” At the very least you can introduce them to those two shark videos above!

  1. I would definitely prefer the Sony PS-LX300 USB Turntable because it can archive music from vinyl, and store it digitally! That is amazing!

  2. A new Sony turntable would be awesome, vinyl is so much better and I have all my old albums but nothing to play them on. I use to love going and buying a new album.

  3. I think I may have been called an Evil Jelly Witch while driving the other day…..ah. Now it all makes sense. Also left Seal is stealing the show, sorry Katy Perry’s shark. #ReggaeShark

    I would pick the Sony PS-LX300USB turntable…why? I’m a child of the 80s of course i’d Choose the turntable! Beat it!

  4. I could really use the receiver so I could connect all the devices I have. It would really make my home setup much more simple.

  5. The Sony receiver..I’ve been eyeing it up for my vintage turntable that I would love to reboot – but no receiver to go with it!

  6. I would like the Sony turntable to replace one that I gave to my brother in law 10 years ago when I thought vinyl was over. Luckily I did not give away my vinyl collection though as I was saving it for one of my daughters who likes the 60’s and 70’s music scene!

  7. Le récepteur sans aucun doute,ma maison est connecté des lumières au serrures,mais la platine fera partie de mes nouvelles installations merci best buy pour vos idees branché et votre savoir.reggae shark

  8. Le récepteur,la question ne ce pose maison est entièrement intelligente il serait en priorité mais la platine fera partis de mes futurs installations , et Reggae shark. Pour vos exellents conseil et vos idée branché merci best buy.

  9. I would love to win a Sony Turntable and Receiver so I can play all the LP’s that I still have and haven’t been able to play for a millenium or more!! The last one I had was one that I got when I traded an album to an ex-boyfriend for his very old turntable!!

  10. I would want the turntable. I have lots of records from my late father’s collection and no way to listen to them.

  11. A receiver is high up my wanted list. Sold everything to go with modern slim sound bars and what not, but nothing beats a good full size receiver.

  12. Sony Turntable FTW! I don’t have any type of record player/turntable right now, but I’d love one to listen to some old vinyl LPs I have! Also, Reggae Shark is cool AF.
