What's a good record player I can get nowadays?
My parents let me take their old record player home with me a while back, but either they forgot it was broken, or it busted in the car, 'cause I've never gotten the table to turn. [note: this opens the door for advice on where/how to fix a record player, rather than buying one]
This leaves me needing one, and uneducated as to the advances in LP technology and brands through the years. All I see in stores are big ol' combination beasts that cost hundreds of dollars and boast features I don't need even if I had room for them. I wouldn't be opposed to one that plugs into the computer so I can MP3ize my records, but aside from that, I figure just need a turntable, a needle and somewhere to plug my speakers into it.
Anybody keeping up with these things that can guide my shopping?
P.S. I'm a married college student, so if we could find something that costs less than rent, that'd be super.
