Not sure how expensive they are now, but Pro-Ject turntables are / used to be amazing for their price range.

The records played may also account for what you hear in my humble opinion

We have an Audio-Technica AT-LP120. It's a good one. I just saw one online for $229. It's odd that the version with a USB (so hi-tech!) is less expensive, but it's obviously newer and therefore more cheaply made. That's probably it.

This isn't a bad deal at all if you're into bundles and welcome a USB: https://www.focuscamera.com/audio-te...hoCGMMQAvD_BwE



Bundle Includes:

Audio-Technica Direct-Drive Professional Turntable (USB & Analog, Silver)
-----AT95E cartridge
-----AC power cord
-----Dual RCA (female) to 3.5 mm (1/8") mini-plug (male) stereo adapter cable
-----Dual RCA (female) to 3.5 mm (1/8") mini-plug (female) stereo adapter cable
-----45 RPM adapter
-----USB cable
-----Recording software
Presonus 2-Way 3.5" Near Field Studio Monitor (PAIR)
Knox Gear Vinyl Brush Cleaner
Knox Vinyl Record Cleaning Kit

Thanks a lot, folks. I genuinely appreciate it.

Those Pro-Ject models do look so nice that it's probably only a matter of time before I buy one myself even if only for the ornamental value (until I inevitably follow through and splurge on records, too). The Audio-Technica is, to be fair, very much feature-rich for the price and possibly quite appropriate as a first turntable for the gift recipient in question.

Food for thought, for sure. Thanks again, all.

we've had our pre-owned analog Audio-Technica for 8 years and it does exactly what it's supposed to do and it's of good quality. it really is the best "budget" brand--as in they hover roughly ~250-300. and unless you want to spend a whole lot more it's not really an upgrade at all.

Maybe Audio-Technica "fucking sucks" when you're a self-ascribed "music lover" and bourgeois so it comes with the territory.

I can understand eventually putting down money for badass speakers, though.

I bought a Rega PL1 over a year ago, but I'm yet to even get it out of its box. I got a good discount for it because I had a gift voucher as well as a bonus discount that had just ticked over on my loyalty card at that store.

Ah Ram

Do it man. Get all the help you can. Life is a team effort...we all have to find ourselves a team at some point or other (or constantly). Best wishes. You can get through this. Itís not easy...but when the right solution is found...even though itís not easy itís....manageable somehow. I canít explain it. But you can live sober, even though you might not be able to imagine it right now. Rehab will hopefully be a great place...

I think it's great that you're deciding to get help.

It does worry me that you're referencing your rock-'n'-roll heroes with respect to decisions like this, though. You don't need fucking Kurt Cobain to legitimize and render respectable rehab. Methinks you romanticize rockstars too much.

Oh man, look after yourself. :'( <3

I'm really glad that you're checking in to rehab. I hope that joking about rock stars is more of a sign of self-awareness and self-monitoring, and not romanticism.

Good luck Ram. You can do it. Just take it one moment at a time and try to find something to occupy yourself.
