Portable Turntable with Speakers and Aux Audio Output

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I am new to vinyls and turntables and am looking for a turntable that not only has speakers built in but has aux audio output. I am looking to spend under 200 and was wondering if anybody knew of any good options.

 

Thanks in advance.

Portable? As in with a Handle? I haven't seen a Portable Turntable with speakers since the mid 80's. Your only chance is eBay/Craig's list, and even if you found one it would still suck.

They have straight tonearms, 2 thumbs down :( Too much work to align the cartridge using a 2point alignment, if they will even allow it :(

Do they make music too? That would be a nifty trick. Sorry, I appreciate noise-core, and unconventional instruments, but thats just junk. I think about the same as far as a decent chunk of Jazz in case anyone cares to know. Plenty of recordings were made to demonstrate little more than the artists technical mastery of his/her instrument, with begging and pleading to "please pay no attention to the fact that my music has no value beyond showmanship" under the guise of telling people that "you just dont get it". Sorry, I think I do.

 

Personal taste aside, you can scratch with a curved or offset arm too... the problem is that DJ's dont care when the TT is a creative noise generator so its a great place to save a few dollars. 

 

Playing records with a straight tonearm (with the cantilever in line with the arm) is TERRIBLE for fidelity, and does horrific things as far as record wear is concerned.
