A Modern Day Victrola

If your taste runs to vinyl but even budget audiophile-grade turntables are priced beyond your means, Victrola has your number. For $200 this model can be yours. It's also available in other styles, but this one does the best visual imitation of a $1,000 audiophile design.

The arm looks a little wimpy, but it can likely get the job done on all those albums you found at Goodwill, swap meets, or in grandma's attic. But I don't expect that the typical Victrola buyer will pay $25 (and up!) or more demanded for each new or re-mastered vinyl release.
