I really want to get into records because my dad has a lot of old ones that I really want to listen to. I also have some myself from newer bands. I need a turntable, but I'm not sure what brand or type to get. So far the only one that looks great to me is the Audio Technica AT-PL60 for around $65. Does anyone else know of a good record player/turntable that is under $100? I'm not looking for the best of the best, I just really need one that is great for its price and will play my vinyls well. I now realize that I'll need to get a decent pair of speakers. The Sony SS-B1000 Bookshelf speakers look nice to me, but again, you guys know more than I do. Are these good speakers? Are there better speakers out there for under $50? I also realized that I need an Amp. What is a good amp for this turntable?

Thanks!

Thanks for all the advice Doug! For one thing, I'm not really looking to connect it to my computer or anything. I really just want to have my own vinyl stereo set up. I pretty much threw the ATPL60 out the window and now I'm going to try and get my hands on an old Technics from craigslist or Goodwill. I've heard a lot of good things about them. I still have no clue what some good speakers are and a good preamp though.
