I'm looking to get into vinyl on a (relatively) low budget. I looked around and I can get a Music Hall MMF-2.2 for about $250, slightly used. This seems like a pretty decent deal to me, but I'm not sure if I should go for it. I'm pretty new to this stuff, so I was wondering if it was a decent beginner's table or not? It seems that the low end Rega and Technics tables are better regarded, but the prices for them seem to be quite a bit higher. I'd say that my budget for the table is around $300 tops.
Also, I would probably need a phono preamp along with the table. I know a lot less about this and would love to hear your recommendations about that. Budget for this is ~$100 if possible.
