A new cartridge for as little as $25, and you are set. Plug this into a phono preamp, and not only will you have a much better turntable, you will eliminate the electronics of your combo. Most combos had low-end designs. They will not give you the wow factor.
I was planning on getting a second turntable for my bedroom, so that is not out of the realm of possibility.
Could you please give me any advise in what I should be looking for in a turntable? And specific kind of output connections, or how to know if I am buying something acceptable? I'd like to start looking on ebay, rather than going hunting locally.
