I would like to hear you suggestions regarding the choice of a turntable.

- Approx. budget 100~225 EUR
- Just to rip some vynils but I want to be sure to have good quality (I like natural sound, so no need for bass improvements or stuff like that).
- I'd like one with a pre-amp/line out (I have an Asus Xonar Essence STX soundcard and I trust line out more than USB, any reason this would be wrong ?)
-- I'd like to rip to .wav, I don't want any system that would force MP3 encoding (but If I can use direct line out instead, then I don't care about this).
- 45 rpm, 33 rpm
- Ideally it should be easily available for order in order.

Some models I have in mind after a quick search : Lenco - L-81 USB, Ion - Proflash, Ion - Profile LP, Pro-Ject - Debut III

Thank you for your help.

I saw a pair of Technics SL1210 in a 2nd hand shop yesterday priced at a very reasonable £170 each.

Add a new stylus, even complete cartridge, and a phono pre-amp from the likes of ART (£25) or B-Tech (£18) and you have a genuine quality system within the top end of your budget. It's a risk free investment too because if you changed your mind later you could pass it on again easily for more or less what you paid.
