I have around $600 to spend on a new turntable, and if possible including some kind of record cleaning unit. Do I get a budget turntable and a Spin Clean now or get a better turntable and and wait to get a cleaning system later?
Music Hall MMF-2.2 improved by LP Gear and a Spin Clean Value Pack $574
ProJect RPM1.3 and a Spin Clean Value Pack $584, no dust cover but I could just use a 34.5 inches square silk scarf for a dust cover.
Project Xpression III $699, seems like a pretty junky cartridge (Sumiko Oyster) for a $700 turntable package.
Any other option in a turntable with cartridge for under $700?
I don't know, do you?
