All that lovely 180g vinyl will be torn to shreds.

Intempo rubbish brand. Had two heaphones. Lasted two weeks each.

Utter garbage. You'd be better advised playing your records with a 4" wood screw. They'll suffer less damage.

Ok, so how do we know which will wreck a record and which won't?

For a start, ignore these crappy suitcase style tables. I made this mistake. Plus, you expect something decent? £30 is not going to cut it, you can get an Audio Technica LP-60 for £100, it's not going to set the world on fire or even be that great but it should not eat your records. Look for an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate on a TT and check the tracking force. My old cheap nasty box had a weight of about 8 grams, that's just awful.

Also, check the pre-amp that's in it Cheap tables have cheap speakers / sound output and sound awful.

I think I got that right, I hope so.

For a start, anything that lists a "ceramic" cartridge is a no-no; these were designed for 1950's shellac records; shellac is much harder than modern plastic records, and even it wore out pretty quickly at the down-force levels these carts require.

This particular one is so cheap, they dont even tell you in the description, what the cartridge is, so it could well BE a 4" wood screw.

The above mentioned AT is the absolute minimum to avoid destroying your records in a year or less; for a bit more you can get a budget Pro Ject, but you will probably have to factor in another £20 for a phono pre-amp; have a look here.

I have the At LP 60 and added in a Bluetooth receiver. It sounds superb on my Sony soundbar.

As I said, the AT is the absolute minimum to not destroy records; it doesnt actually sound that great really.

If you go listen to the Pro Ject, it will knock your socks off in comparason; you would need to spend another £200 to get anything that really sounds better than that little Elemental.

Yes I have the ProJect Carbon as my main player and it does sound great but the LP 60 is an occasional living room player and to me is just fine. perfect for beginners

You can pick so many good vintage turntables up for better money on eBay a nicer starter would be a trio KD-1033 or pioneer pl-12d. You can get a half decent amp for under £50 and some nice speakers for £30. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune for a good starter hifi set up.

This will have the same cartridge / needle as the majority of sub £100 players and so is nothing like the nonsense the "audiophile " protest. I played by vinyl in the 80s in cheap record players and they still sound great.
