Good turntable, new or used
more_vert
I became an owner of ~70 vintage vynil records overnight. I am looking for a turntable that would do them justice. Turntable I am looking for is in the sweet spot where the curve of cost vs benifit is starting to take off - namely, where small improvements to the sounds start costing a lot more, of that makes sense. One I found that seems in that sweet spot is the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB, but it's a little out of my price range. Are there any other options? Will consider used ones as well. Ideally want to stay under $500. Thanks!

Try the Music Hall mmf 1.5. $400. See Steve Guttenbergs review on cnet. Sweet. Built in the same factory as the Project Debut

Having just gone through a similar exercise not too long ago, there are several entry level candidates that are solid. The Audio Technica LP 120, Project Carbon Debut DC, U Turn Orbit, and the TEAC TN-400 were my four finalists. Any of them would likely suit your needs. I ended up going with the TN-400 because it is by far the most visually attractive to me (it's a focal point in the room it is in) and I was able to grab it at a really good price. There weren't a lot of reviews out there on it, but I am pleasantly surprised by the sound.

A new Audio Technica AT-LP120 is $300 from Amazon and is pretty good for its price. I have one connected to my speakers.
