Hey, my first post, so hi.
I haven't had a working turntable since 1989. It was a belt drive Technics, I don't recall what model, and it died a long time ago. I don't have a lot of vinyl, maybe 150 albums, but I'd like to listen to them again.
My current sound setup is not fancy; Infinity speakers, Onkyo amp and receiver, That's it. I could plug a phonograph into it if I had one. And that's why I'm here; I want to buy one.
I know I'm not an audiophile because I'm way too ignorant for that right now. I'd like to buy a complete turntable (deck, arm, cartridge) for under $500 that will let me start enjoying my old vinyl again. While I'm doing that, I want to spend some time learning about higher end stuff and learning how to upgrade my listening pleasure. It's just that I'm so ignorant, I don't know where to start.
So, can you suggest a complete turntable (deck, arm, cartridge) in my $500 max price range (used on ebay would be ok too) that will let me enjoy my old vinyl while I learn?
