I'm new to the forum and need some words of wisdom from the experts. I'm getting back into vinyl (I never really left but thats a diffferent story) and need a new (used) turntable. I've been looking at the following options:
1. Rega Planar 3 with at least an RB250 arm.
2. Music Hall MMF-5
3. SOTA Sapphire
4. VPI HW-19 mk III
From what I've seen online these tables fall into my price range ($400-$500). Any thoughts, opinons, caveats, suggestions, etc... And any suggestions on cartridges would also be appreciated.
The rest of my set up is a Quad 405 amp, Quad 34 preamp and a pair of original DCM Time Windows, oldies but goodies.
Thanks a bunch,
