Could anyone reccomend a good brand/model record player, just for playing 7" & 12", not into DJ'ing just wanting a record player, looking at anything really a new model (2000's etc) or a 'vintage'/'retro' model (1960's onward)
Looking at spending around £100ish although just inquiring at the moment
Thanks for any advice or help

One of the better makes in the UK for record players was Hacker. I had one years ago and it was very good. Might be worth looking on FleaBay to see if there are any like that about.

This is the one I had. It's on FleaBay and the auction ends in half an hour! Couldnt' paste the URL into this, I think it's too long. Search for "hacker record player"

One further thing you need to think about is if you just buy a vintage turntable you will need to plug it into an amplifier. You either need an amplifier with a dedicated a "phono" input, or a phono preamp. The output from a turntable cartiridge is very small compared to a CD/tape/mp3/aux output.

Why not get a usb one from Maplin, about £55?
Then you can store them on your pc or memory cards.

Poor sound quality would be a good reason why not.
