So basically I am a college student who has always loved records and the way they sound for some reason the whole concept of sound being contained in groves is fascinating. I have never had my own setup and don't know much beyond the basics I would however love to have a setup of my own in my apartment. However the issue here is budget again I am a college student and money isn't always the easiest thing to come by especially in this day and age. I just want to be able to enjoy some records now and I will splurge and get a really nice system assuming I one day graduate and get a decent job. As of now though I really just want to play some vinyl. I realize this isn't a budget at all really but I basically have $500 give or take that I could comfortably spend. Any suggestions would be welcome and greatly appreciated.
