I'm new to Vinyl collecting and going slow because I just got back from an expensive trip to Europe. I was hoping my dad had an old record player I could start with but he doesn't so I need some advice on the modern record players from people who have used them. I read some articles and saw some youtube videos that speak negatively about several new players so I figured there was no harm in asking for help/opinions here. I am also wondering if there is some kind of guide on prices and different pressings of records so I have an idea of what price is reasonable. I can understand the concept of pressings/limited editions but I obviously wouldn't know what is rare or more collectible and what isn't especially based on year/color/brand etc. Any help would be appreciated

In terms of players, this Audio Technica has done me well. #1 rated on Amazon too. http://amzn.to/13yn7pZ

And just a heads up, the plural of vinyl is vinyl

i approve the plug of this record player.

...and will elaborate on that last part by explaining that the reason behind this is that "vinyl" is short for "vinyl record" or "vinyl records," making the word "vinyl" an adjective. since most adjectives don't reflect plurality in the english language, it remains the same whether you're talking about one or many. as such, the short form of the term is always the same, no matter the number.

i should go back to working on my brief.

After doing some research I think I will just wait and see if I can pick one of these up soon:

I actually get more annoyed at people always pointing out that it's "vinyl" more than at the person who says "vinyls."
