Or simply enjoy the appearance and feel of vinyl records.
You'll end up paying a lot more money if sound is important to you. You can spend a lot less if you only want something cheap and/or cute, but the sound will most likely be only OK. But, unless you're an audiophile, don't get too worked up about it. Everything will be OK. Rather than looking for a vintage turntable, you should purchase a new one.
Old, used turntables will show signs of use and will be costly to repair if something goes wrong. You can get a fine new turntable for a reasonable price, and most versions come with a built-in pre-amp, so you can avoid some of the more annoying aspects of assembling a stereo system. (I'll get to that later.) Here are a few decent choices for various purposes and pricing points.If you don't care about sound quality and just want a simple turntable with built-in speakers that won't take up a lot of room, one of these portable Crosley turntables, or other similar models on the market, is a good choice.
A "belt drive" and a "direct drive"
Belt drive turntables have an independent motor that uses a rubber belt to drive the platter, which is where the record is placed. A platter is integral to the motor in direct drive turntables.
DJing is not possible with belt drive turntables, but it is possible with direct drive turntables. Belt drive turntables are preferred by audiophiles because they produce less exterior noise and vibration.
