Looking at the list it's easy to see why people got out of vinyl...

And these are belt drives too. The 12000 $ one ran 1% slow in the review... The Linn needs a 3000 $ power supply to get half way decent wow and flutter spec but is still a class A table. the 30000 SME needs a tonearm... With the VPI you have to pay extra to get an acceptable spindle bearing..
In the C Class there are lots of compromises in the reviews, but the median unit is only 1100 $, what can you expect for that small an investment.

And we haven't even talked about the front end pre amp yet or the cartridge. Whew!

Or lest we forget the cables...
