That was on my list right after getting the motor to turn the belt again. Although, it's not been used too much, the sound is nice and rich. I'm still going to get a replacement though, just as a standby. Can't ever hurt.

Best new turntables for the money HANDS DOWN:

Even better, but if your just listening, maybe overkill:

I have a set of the bottom ones for DJing.



The TTX is better than the old Dual (model 1219) I own in specs, but the TT200 is inferior (wow and flutter - lower numbers are better: TT200 0.2% vs. TTX 0.03% vs. Dual 1219 0.06%; rumble - higher numbers are better: TT200 -40dB/-50dB vs. TTX -58dB/-79dB vs. 1219 -45dB/-60dB). For comparison the Technics SL 1200 MK2 is a respectable 0.01% wow and flutter and -78dB rumble.

You get what you pay for in a new turntable, but for home use (not DJing) the vintage Duals can't be beat for the money.

If you're interested in getting a basic turntable just to record records I believe the big name electronic stores still sell a base model Sony turntable for like $89.00...I got one a couple years ago with the express purpose of recording things on the computer and it's been working fine! As for a pre-amp I use my Peavey mixer but any amp would work just as well...

I second the nomination for a turntable with a built-in pre-amp. There are many inexpensive options out there, from Sony, Numark, and Vestax among others, ranging from about $100-$250. I need one of these myself!

I've heard of the Numark and Vestax models, but I didn't know they had preamps in them. I'm just looking for home use right now, but when I get my bar built (by the gods someday) I will want something with a bit more punch. Does Best Buy or anyone sell the Vestax or Numark models that anyone knows? I've seen the Sony's and they're running around 129.99, way too steep for my wallet at the moment.

Check out the pawn shops! Great place to get bargain electronics! I've gotten plenty of stuff thru pawn at really good deals... and only buy from a shop that will either let you demo in store, or offer a return policy.
