Cheap Turntable under $400

Just for funcies. Been gifted a few records, but won’t be chasing the records road much.
Besides the Fluance RT-81 which most seem to recommend. No real interest on investing much money on that hobby.

There are a few but this is one of the best for <$400 and it comes with a decent cartridge:

Thanks. Do you happen to own that model?

I continue to find fascinating and wonderful that one can obtain a nice taste of vinyl’s characteristics with a good inexpensive table such as this.

That’s what I’ve been told. I got phono hookups everywhere on my gear and feel that they must be used. :smiley:

Whatever you choose, do make sure you can adjust the tracking force. A cheap turntable isn’t so cheap if it carves up your $20 LPs.

What a wonderful buy! Great find.

Thanks! That’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

No I’ve seen it in the audio rags - think it was product of the year. A lot of great reviews. Seems like a steal.I think Music Direct has them with a 60 day return if you don’t like it.

That’s a great deal…

Can you stretch it $100 for this great turntable, new, discounted?
