By the way, Vestal, NY is really close to Binghamton, where there is a great turntable repair facility called For Your Listening Pleasure...Here is their web site...http://www.everythingradio.com/services/
If you like the looks of this Dual here, I think it's a fabulous steal for under $100...https://binghamton.craigslist.org/ele/d ... 20111.html
An excellent value for the money and can be a great table with some TLC...FYLP could probably look at it, too, for you...You won't find anything new with the same quality as some of these vintage beasts!
There's a great Pioneer receiver here for $125 that could be a good match, too...https://ithaca.craigslist.org/ele/d/for ... 18617.html
For $50, here's an all-in-one system...Usually, these are to be avoided at all costs, but if it has a nice Dual turntable in it, it may merit consideration... https://ithaca.craigslist.org/ele/d/vin ... 22228.html
There's a black MCS here and a Kenwood turntable that may be worth investigating, too...https://ithaca.craigslist.org/ele/d/ste ... 57508.html
But, actually, if you have time, you may want to check out this great blow-out sale near you...The ad says bargain hunters are welcome and they have all kinds of vintage audio equipment! October 21st, which is two days away!https://ithaca.craigslist.org/ele/d/one ... 89136.html
Here's another great MCS (Many of these were made for JC Penney by Technics) for $50...https://syracuse.craigslist.org/ele/d/m ... 91930.html

More goodies here, possibly...https://syracuse.craigslist.org/eld/d/h ... 32289.html
There's a $50 Denon TT here...https://syracuse.craigslist.org/ele/d/s ... 11467.html
More goodies here...https://ithaca.craigslist.org/ele/d/vin ... 40129.html
A nice receiver, too, and our own Tinkaroo has one...https://syracuse.craigslist.org/ele/d/v ... 44742.html
Just a few options you might consider...Be sure to check out any estate sales, thrift shops, garage sales, antique stores and flea markets in your area, too! You never know what you might find...I recently picked up this guy here for $35 at one of my local thrift stores...
It doesn't mean that you will be so lucky...It takes patience and perseverance, but if you keep looking, some nice equipment is bound to come your way!
