Hey brothers/sisters. I am planning on investing in a turntable and starting a vinyl collection for enjoyment and sampling. Any recommendations? Looking for something reasonably priced. If you could also recommend gear that would be required to hook all the shit up to a computer that would be great too. Thanks!

I was gonna get a numark tt usb but eh Im broke at this current moment but Numark Or Technics are pretty good man. With the numark it directly records into your computer with the usb so thats all youll need if you end up buyin this

Single tables range from $90-$250 on Amazon (Brand types also vary)
IDK if guitar center what guitar center sells them for, I'm pretty sure they sell for the same or more.

If you're not planning on becoming a DJ, go vintage. You should be able to find a Dual or Thorens or Technics or Pioneer deck for a couple of hundred bucks or less that will blow away modern turntables at the same price. Plus, vintage turntables look cooler. Craigslist, Audiogon, eBay (be careful), or local used music gear shops can be good sources for affordable older stuff.

I use an M-Audio 2496 sound card to get the music to my computer.

You'll also need a phono preamp if you're going to play through a receiver (unless your receiver already has a phono input.
