Boast warning!

I have a Thorens TD160 turntable with Shure cartridge, Naim pre and power amps and Nam 402 speakers. For recording there is an Akai reel to reel.

What do I use most? A pocket MP3 player and Sennheiser headphones. Drinking Beverage


Most of the time I listen in my garage using my laptop... Over 600 albums stored. Hit " play all, random" ... It goes for weeks and sound great.

Depending on whether you just want to have one, or qualify as an audiophile loon, they can be had for anywhere from $30 to tens of thousands of dollars. Assuming you just want to plug it into a typical home stereo system and play your dad's records without destroying them, here's a reasonable model for the average joe.

You might find a better deal on this one, or others of similar quality, from a place that refurbs used turntables, but you may end up having to buy a stylus and a cartridge separately, which will put you back up in the same price range.
