    Hi!
    I just bought a Dual CS 429 turntable. I was wondering if anyone could recommend an affordable plug in light that also clamps on to my cabinet since I don't have a lot of available space?
    I live in Canada.

    Thanks!

    Amazon Canada has dozens of small, clamp-on, LED models, with fixed necks, flexible necks, brightness control and so on. They run between $15-$40. Next day delivery for most of them.

    Here’s one:

    Amazon.ca

    … and there are dozens of others.

    I use one from Ikea, modelname: Nävlinge.
    There are 2 different models for clamping and even a wall mounted model.
    They have different lengths, are flexible so can be mounted in different positions and are also adjustable in height.

    My experience with the IKEA LED lights is they die pretty quickly. Got flickering in a handful of them so I just stopped buying eventually.

    Quite a few on here including me have the Uberlight

    available on the Amz so I’m guessing you can get it in Canada , it’s not the cheapest but after 3 ikea / eBay ones that failed I thought invest for longevity

    Amazon.co.uk

    I had this too, the 3 intensities were nice. But I misplaced it somewhere and can't find it back :shrug:.

    I'm using this Reliable UberLight Flex 3200TL Task Light purchased a year ago off Amazon. Quite happy....very sturdy and versatile. Someone else on the board recommended it.

    Edit: Just noticed above several others already recommended! Sorry for the repetetion.

    I think a company rep made a post a few years ago? I bought one then. My wife saw it and wanted one for her home office. Lol
    She's a CPA and has weak eyes and is always looking at paperwork. She loves it.
    Bought Dec 4 2021. $72
    They've down in price! $59 now, nice

    I agree,
    Uber Light works quite well and there is very interesting new model coming out.

    I bought this one on Amazon a couple of years ago:
    Amazon.com

    It’s about $40 now, it was cheaper then, but it’s been rock solid and build quality is good. 3 color temps, several different brightness levels. Ben really happy with it.

    Same. Just a great lamp- can change color/temperature and intensity. Comes in clamp or stand versions. Very reliable to boot.

    Uber light is definitely worth the extra investment. Just buy it, you never look back.
