So, here’s the deal, my daughter is 11, and unlike most of her generation, she is actually becoming interested in physical media. She has a few records and a few CDs, and now she wants a stereo set-up for Christmas. Spending $300 or more on an entry level turntable is not in the budget. My question is would an ‘80s plastic base TT at least be serviceable? By “serviceable” I basically mean “not destroy her records.” I had an Onkyo in the ‘80s, and while it was not audiophile, it sounded decent and did not wreck my vinyl. I feel like the tracking force was fairly reasonable. If she has continued interest, maybe I will upgrade her in the future, but right now I’m just looking for something that works and doesn’t put undue wear on her records.
