Linn Basik

I am considering buying a used Linn Basik Turntable, with the Linn Basik LVX arm and a Nagaoka MK-II cartridge.

I was wondering if anyone had any info on this table, what little I found said the only downside is isolation. Would that be a problem to a newcomer to vinyl (installing isolation devices). He is asking for $480 CAD, wondering if that is a good price or should I haggle.

my other options include.

Music hall 2.1 dealer demo $300.
a new Project Debut 3 $350.
used Rega Planar 3 - RB250! Shelter 201 MM $575
Would the Rega be worth the extra money?

Edit: I Just realized i need a phono amp/stage any recommendations, it would have to be under $100

Thank You

Re: Linn Basik

Ended up buying a Pro-ject Debut III, with an Ortofon 520 MkII cartridge for $400.

Now to find a pre amp. Looks like its gonna be a NAD P-2

Thanks

Re: Linn Basik

The NAD PP-2 is a solid phono stage, but you might also want to take a look at the Cambridge Audio 540p - or if you can make your budget stretch a little bit more check out the Cambridge 640p, which is supposed to blow away the 540p and the PP-2.
