    several here have had good experiences with u-turn audio. even new it is certainly within your budget.

    also, rega are very nice affordable turntables which can be had new or used within your budget.

    good luck with the search!

    You can find a used Rega P3 in that range. Great TT for starters and tons of upgrades and mods available for future tweaking.

    I ended up with my 1 y/o P3 for about $5 after I sold off the rest of the lot it came with. I know that is not easily reproducible but there are deals out there and if your willing to flip a few things you can buy a package deal and whittle down what you don't want.

    I owned a U-Turn and it was a very solid table in your range! A very good starter table for sure.

    I ended up getting a better Rega which was a huge step up. If you can find a used Rega P3 or better that is in nice shape in your budget then that would be the way I would go.
