Thanks

Reloop RP-7000. It is direct-drive with removable headshell, you get a concorde cartridge with it. It costs around 500 EUR.

You could also look into either a Rega Planar 2 (2016) or the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Espirit, both within that price range.

AT-LP 1240 and Reloop RP-7000 are actually made on the same basic model in the same factory. But this doesn`t mean they are equal. I would recommend Reloop over AT, because it is little better designed and has more classic look.

You can get a turntable of very reasonable quality for 300 euro,
and put the saved money into a better cartridge.

I already have a better cartridge, an ortofon 2m blue, your answer is silly and unuseful. Thanks everyone for the other answers.

Fairly reasonable suggestion, he wasnt to know about the 2M blue. Pretty ungracious of you to respond that way.

if i don't know something, i don't make suggestions before asking. And besides, he did not even specify which model for €300 to get, so no, i wasn't ungracious, i just spoke clear words. As if you ask for a specific car model for 20.000 and someone tells you to go for a driving course and that there are 10.000 price range cars for you.

People who live in USA or Canada think that everywhere is like there, where you have second-hand shops with hifi equipment and you can get quality things in great condition for even 100$ and little more. Here in Europe you can buy vintage turntables only on web, maybe in Germany you have some specialised sellers with vintage hifi. Prices are not so cheap and a lot of things can go wrong. Specialised enthusiastic servicer is very hard to find and he won`t be cheap. So actually buying a vintage turntable in Europe can be much more expensive than buying a new turntable with a warranty.

i just spoke clear words


Clear words are not necessarily kind and considerate words. If "kind" and "considerate" are not your preferred method of communicating, perhaps you would do better on some other forum.
