Hey duders, not long ago a family member passed away. While we where clearing out the house we came across a pretty big collection of vinyls. Since no one else wanted them I thought why the hell not and took them. The idea of buying a record player and starting a collection has been in my head for a while however I have literally no clue about them. I have looked about online and its all pretty intimidating. So I thought I would come here for advice.
I am looking to buy a fairly decent record player, my budget is about £150-£200 (not sure what that would be in dollars). What would this get me? Are there any brands to avoid? I am not looking to go full scale audiophile but just a decent set up. Also I have seen mention of needing an amp but as I am clueless I don't really know if I need one. I have fairly decent speakers so they shouldn't be a problem. Any info would be much appreciated.
