I just started using turntables a week ago, but i already managed to get my hands on 3 turntables and over 100 vinyl records. At a very desirable price
The first TT i got for free
AKAI AP-A50 Fully auto linear TT in fully playable and serviceable condition.
Upgraded it with a Stanton l700e (30$), it plays OK
The second TT i got for free
The arm did not lower itself and the stylus was missing.
New stylus (new old stock shure m95g) 10$ from local store.
Its now fully functional and a great TT.
The third TT i got for free
Swedish designed TT made by Yamaha, in very good condition, no parts needed.
Sounds very good, on par with the Dual 510.
Total price for three turntables and 100+ LP records
Norway seem to have a lot of hidden treasure that will be given to you if you just ask
