anything on this listing would be considered very good to the best money can buy.

also I want to add that you have think of it as a SYSTEM like a guitar setup. Your turntable can only sound as good as your preamp, speakers and cables, just as your guitar can only sound as good as your amp and patch chord.
but ya if you read a bunch of reviews the Pro-Ject Debut III, Rega RP1, and the Music Hall MMF are considered excellent entry level audiophile turntables. The sound quality can get a bit better with a bit more money but after that it comes down to aesthetics and art. You're paying for gold plated this, hand sanded that, laser precision, zero vibration/noise yadayada.... it's a rich-mans world but for punk rock records those three brand mentioned will sound great.
