Can you recommend a system for less than $400 everything I looked at is $2K plus!!!

The VPI 16.5 runs ~$500, and some of the Nitty Gritty's run less.

Try this - $299, unless you are adverse to turning the record yourself.

I saw this one, but I've read about the advantages of a full table mat that allows you to manually clean the record with a brush, so I was leaning towards the VPI, but for now I'm doing OK with a MoFi Record brush and some deep cleaning liquid.

Get the VPI 16.5, and you can't go wrong!
