For vintage options, the Pioneer PL-530, PL-550 and other models can be had in the $300-$500 range: serviced and ready to go.
Dual TT's are frequently on e-bay for under your price point. A standard, professional, rebuild by "FixMyDual" is $135, which gives you room to buy something that won't need much extra.
A Sansui SR 4050C sold for just under $200 recently - and gets good reviews.
You may really want to consider such functions as:
* Cue Lever (for worry-free needle drops)
* Auto Lift/Auto Return (for when the side ends, and you're distracted...)
The Orbit, for example does not have these. Devices exist to modify tables, but you might want to keep such features in mind for worry-free operation.
Thanks for feedback, however I do not want to bother buying used off ebay or from a seller only to inherit more problems, I would rather buy if I do a refurbed unit all ready to go or a brand new unit preferably of the ones listed.
I plan to end the madness in a couple days and just place the order, Orbit will sell a separate cue lever option for $40. The Pro-Ject's offer the cue lever..... Curious on opinions on that Technics refurbed unit .... from anyone possibly owning it
Your feedback is appreciated..
