Dave, I have a Technics. The problem is the turntable doesn't turn. I took it apart and everything inside seems in tact. It may be the belt as there is a spindle that spins but there isn't anything connected to it. There is an elastic band around the inside of the platter that is broken, so that may be it.

I have a small receiver that I picked up long ago as a spare setup, nothing great but it does have a phono input. I got a USB recording device for christmas that i was planning on hooking up the turntable to.

I have no problem picking up something new instead of trying to repair the old one. I've got about 400 LPs so I guess I'm just a tosser, but it would be great to hear them all again and get them into the i-tunes rotation.
 
There are several sellers on eBay from whom you can get just about any turntable belt - they're usually around $10.00.  Dave probably knows a lot of other sources to get those belts from if you don't want to deal with eBay.

What kind of turntable do you already have? What kind of cartridge does it have? It may be an easy fix. If you've seen the vinyl play list thread here you know I'm into vinyl a bit. Are you looking for something to rip vinyl to digital or just a nice table for listening to records? Do you have a receiver or preamp with a phono input? If so does it support Moving Coil (MC) or just Moving Magnet (MM). Sorry about all the questions but it will help narrow down what would work best for you.

I always Scotch-taped a nickel to the tonearm so the needle wouldn't bop up and down and skip and all.  At 13, that was the best easy fix I could come up with.

  Oh yeah, there are some, uh, 'dedicated' folks in any hobby. I have too many varied interests to get completely crazy on just one...

I dug my old turntable out of mothballs after 20 years or so and of course it doesn't work so i'm in the market for a new unit. I'm not an audiophile but I'm sure some of you on RP are. What is a good model to get for under $200?
