So over the weekend, I was at Best Buy picking up a Wii game, when I saw one of those retro 1940's looking units with a radio, CD player and record - for 40 bucks. Caught up in a impulse buy, thinking "Yeah, I have some vinal that I could spin", I grabbed it. Long story short, it was a piece of crap unit - and I took it back the next day. However, I got the idea that I need to pick up a turntable. The problem is - it's been 20 years since I was in the market for one, and I was never a discriminating teenager anyway. So I'm really shooting in the dark here. Of the reading I've done, I favor these two - The Ion USB: http://www.engadget.com/2005/12/05/i...usb-turntable/ And the Audio Technica AT-PL50: http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica.../dp/B00006HO3O Both are capable of hooking up to my computer, should I want to copy my records (the Ion is designed with that in mind, it seems). Both are within the budget without being bottom of the line models (about 150 bucks is about the limit right now). I'm more leaning away from the Ion, since it doesnt have a dust cover - and I'd like it to plug into my home theater setup in addition to hooking up to my computer too. But, I'll turn to you guys. Anyone have suggestions for a reasonably priced, solidly built turntable?
