If the name changes to Trumped we'll know who bought it.

Don't fancy scrolling through 25 pages.

Can someone please recommend a good quality sturdy record player deck.
Even point me at a good priced second hand one or a model that's easily picked up

Thanks

I’ve got an Audio-Technica ATLP120XUSB. It cost around €250. I’m very happy with it. I’m not an audiophile, I run it into my desktop computer speakers (which are decent for cheap ones, subwoofer and all). I’m not prepared to spend much more but I can always upgrade things if need be.

there's a rega planar 3 (with a glitchy tonearm admittedly) on adverts asking €160. i think this is about one fifth what they cost new?
This is the old version, not the current in production one as far as I can see. I have the old Planar 2 (they’re called P2 and P3 now) and it’s great. Cloney Audio service them for cheap enough too.
