We are you hiding under a chair, this is the second Crosley mentioned already.
I am already amazed at how many members have multiple TT's!
Nottingham Spacedeck, it is the single piece of audio equipment I have owned the longest (I suspect my rebuilt ESL57 will take that new honor). They aren't talked about much in audio forums since they were never heavily advertised or advertised at all. To me it's the most natural sounding TT I've heard within my budget. I have kept my eyes open for a Hyperspace and Dais, but the decently priced ones fly off before I ever have a chance.
Michell Gyro SE/Rega RB 600 arm
the original wheels of steel
A Yamaha YP-D8 with a Shure V15-Type lll that I bought in 79-81, can't remember exactly.
Audio Technica AT-LP60
It's basically entry leve, but it sounds good connected to a Yamaha receiver and speakers.
I had an entry-level Nottingham Horizon SE for years. Great table and I was looking to move up, but then I also wanted to try something different. I ended up with an Oracle Paris MkV.

Revolver Red (in storage)
Marantz TT 15 S1
Own the following at present!
Technics x 2 (one a SP-25, the other a SL-D1)
Pioneer x 2 (one PL-530, the other a PL 12-D)
Presto/Bogen/Lenco L 70 (Needs an idler and some work)
QRK 12-C (needs a tonearm and cartridge)
Project RPM 9.1 Acrylic with Ortofon 2M Black, run in full balanced mode.
Verdier La Platine with the magnetic bearing has been the other one I've always had my eye on, but they come up even less than the higher end Nottinghams and always a bit more than I wanted to pay!
(bought new by my brother in 1980)
Technics 1210/Shure M35-X
JVC QLF-300/Shure Vmr-X
Rega rp8 and a Dual cs5000
