I'm looking into the possibility of getting a turntable as I'm already re-doing pretty much my whole system, and my parents have a pretty sweet collection of 200 or so classic records. The question I have is, should I look into getting a new turntable, something like a Sony for about $100, or should I look on eBay for a vintage player, like a Marantz or B&O from the 70's or such? Besides obviously being a cooler looking piece, is there any benefit technologically-speaking to buying an older player? Thanks a bunch.
