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 love to and have serious want for the Sony turntable! I have say Sony receiver summer 1970s believe it’s 1977 did I have had since it was new. And I checked it because of the quality not because I thought it was going to go up in price. But it has dramatically. And that new Sony turntable would work terrific with my receiver. Thank you for the opportunity. Sincerely , Glenn

  2. I am very happy to announce the winner of this Sony turntable and receiver:

    Ryan K. – Vancouver, BC

  4. I’m hoping that this is PST as it’s 9:10 or I’m just 10 minutes late for EST! I would LOVE to win a turntable, my teen daughter wants one so bad, she’s already buying vinyl… and we don’t even have one, lol!

  5. I would love to win the Sony SDR-DH190 receiver! I will be buying a 55 in TV this year and this would be the icing on the cake!

  6. I would prefer the Sony turntable. My father was quite a big record collector back in the day, so it would be nice to gift him this and see him smile remembering his youthful days while he listens to his still in good condition record collection. And definitely have to say Baby Shark doo doo doo doo doo dooo 🙂

  7. I would prefer the turntable since my old turntable stopped working several years ago and I still have LPs and some 45s.

  8. The SONY turntable! My old Emerson record player with 8-track combo from the 70’s finally quit working 🙁

    And reggae shark, he’s in a band with a seal which helps

  9. The turntable sounds awesome! I love collecting music and some of my favourites (although they are mp3 versions) are oldies recorded on vinyl that haven’t been remastered and sound amazing! I remember when I was young my grandpa used to have some vinyls but I never heard them played, I’d be nice to.
