"Vinyl record players - suggestions?"


  

          

I’ve bought some vinyl records in recent years to support acts I really fuck with(LB, Tanya Morgan, etc.) but I don’t have a record player.

Looking to buy one but I’m lost. Any recommendations on good brands, models, speakers, etc?

A good brand in general, the rt85 is a super value at 500 because it includes the $200 Ortofon blue cartridge and an acrylic platter on a well made unit with good precision of speed. Plus it has auto stop, a rarity on high end players.

The trade off is no built in preamp, you’ll either need a phono capable receiver or standalone phono preamp ($40 for a decent one).

Custom color and the acrylic platter, but I stopped short of adding the preamp.

The only complaints I have are that they released purple as a color option shortly after I got mine, and it's a little difficult getting the band right changing between 33 & 45.

It works and sounds great to my ears.

I’d originally spent almost double on an Arstechnica model, but returned it.

You can get a nice high end turntable on Craig for $300-500. Same thing with speakers and amps too.

Had it since 2018. Got it to play some records that were gifted to me. Plays some of my records a little too fast, but it suits my needs. Sounds good and hasn’t destroyed my records.

Pioneer DJ PLX-500 Direct-Drive Professional Turntable and that aforementioned (by others) Audi Technica tables are basicly the same.

I've had both and they are both completely fine.
