Whether you're getting into vinyl for the first time or getting back into it for the first time in years, find out what to look for when buying either a new or used player. Belt or direct drive? Rubber or cork? Modern or vintage? And what's the deal with Crosley Cruisers? Let me explain.

    A used turntable once told me.. "If you change your mind, i'm the first in line. Honey i'm still free, TAKE A CHANCE ON ME"

    Actually a conical stylus tracking at 3.5 grams, has the same wear on records as an elliptical stylus tracking at 1.7 grams! Most wear comes from styluses used past it's lifespan! KEEP IT CHANGED REGULARLY! Did you know that the acceptable tracking force back then was 4 grams? So those nice original used records most people are enjoying was played at that weight for many, many plays!

    I'd add the Fluance RT 81 to your list. A beautiful turntable which sounds terrific at a cost of $250.

    It's nice that Vinyl is making a comback because a Turntable just looks great on top of the Hi-Fi system in the living room !
