Any recommendations for turntables at ~400USD?

i'll be using powered speakers (JBL LSR305)
it'd be cool if it came with phono preamp but if not thats fine too i guess

if you can add a little extra money, take a look at this one - https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT-LP5-Direct-Drive-Turntable-Black/dp/B01HMW46US/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1549229850&sr=8-3&keywords=audio+technica+atlp5

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

Why 44.1kHz is all you need: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyquist–Shannon_sampling_theorem

 

How loud should you listen?: http://dangerousdecibels.org/education/information-center/decibel-exposure-time-guidelines/

looks p neat, like that it has a phono preamp
right now though i've been doing some reading on the rega planar 1 and pro-ject debut carbon, how do those stack up against this assuming i pair them with a good preamp

whathifi has nothing but good things to say about both. i would go for the rega planar 1 as i did demo one, sounds nice and clean when paired with a decent phono pre-amp, it would also leave a bigger budget for the pre-amp, are you wanting a valve or solid state amp?

Many of the offerrings around the $ price point are valid... Just don't cheap out and aim much lower than them.  

If you can find a vintage one in good shape they work as well. The downside is who knows how long theyll run or if they are still within manufacturing specs... god forbid they break.
