Neep, it is confusing to begin with and there often appears to be many solutions to each problem with each solution seeming to get more and more costly.
Ask questions and happily let people know you are a beginner. Most of the guys and gals on here are very helpful and are a pretty friendly bunch.
I think getting people into the playing of vinyl is more important to begin with rather than having newbies starting up with mega price systems so you will get good advice based on your budget.
Be prepared to listen and heed that advice. There are plenty that come along with their ideas already set in stone and just want to hear approval. If their idea is wrong or a poor choice then they will be told. If they still won't listen then let the battering begin
Ok I'm kidding there
Good luck with the TT adventure and keep us posted.
