I want to get a turntable and I am tired of looking for a good deal on a used one. What is a good one to buy new that is reasonably priced?
Where to get a decent new turntable reasonably priced.
It depends on your definition of "reasonably priced" but there are good quality entry-level turntables available from Rega, Pro-Ject, Music Hall, Thorens and more. Your best bet would be to find a great local audio retailer for a purchase like this. That way you can get help with the tonearm and cartridge set-up (which should not cost extra). If there is no high-end dealer nearby, you can find these tables online at NeedleDoctor, MusicDirect, AcousticSounds, and AudioAdvisor. Have fun!
I was going to reply that a vinyl addiction was no more expensive than other formats, but then I remembered that my turntable did cost more than double my cd player, triple my dvd player, 4X my squeezebox......um....ok. "Unreasonable?"
OK. Under 200 I would probably opt for the
Both include cartridge and built in phono preamp (extra cost items for higher-end tables).

go to audio advisor web site and depending on your budget you can pick up a rega turntable with the super rega arms and a decent cartruidge. If they are prced out of your budget there are project and music hall in the lower end. If you shoot me a pM with your budget I could recommend some really nice turntables and cartridges . AA installs everything for you and no setup to be required.
