Hey everyone. This is my first post here .
I have been using my parents old turntable (10 years old maybe) for awhile now, and the belt is really worn out. Instead of buying a new belt, I figured I would purchase a new turntable since this one has seen its fair share of records.
I would like a direct drive turntable, but I am having trouble finding one with the features I want.
What I liked about the old player was that it had automatic features. The one that I REALLY want is the feature that will lift the arm when the last song is done.
I would really really really like this feature, because I don't want to wear down my needle if I fall asleep, especially if I put a record on before going to bed.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I do not have time nor the experience to build something, and I would like to spend no more than $400. I will definitely not spend more than $500.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
