Anyone any ideas where to find a second hand turn table in Dublin?
A friend has a collection of 80s Lps.
Are you plugging it into an amplifier or do you need a complete system?
If you have an amp/system with a phono input, there are loads for sale 2nd hand on Adverts.ie.
The posts above with the 'all in one' or the USB one are helpful of course, but the sound quality will be atrocious (and I'm not being an audio snob, it will sound like a set of €5 computer speakers in a biscuit tin).
Here's an old Lenco for sale in Dublin for €40 (you will get it for less).
The seller doesn't really know their stuff, but it's got a built in phono stage, meaning it can be plugged into the line inputs of any amp/hifi that has them.
It won't win top marks for sound quality, but judging by the pics, it's an old L76, which will give you a much better listening experience than modern cheapo crap. http://www.adverts.ie/other-music-instruments-equipment/digital-v etc ...
NB: I think (big think), I've an old Aiwa turntable with a decent cartridge and stylus in the attic somewhere.
If I do dig it out, you can have it.
