A Comparison Question

I'm purchasing a new turntable and my options are currently crossed between a few different ones. I don't wish to spend over (an accumulated) $300 and I'd prefer if I could listen to it with headphones. I'm not going to DJ/Scratch or anything... only listen to sweet, sweet music. ;)

I'm going to be listening to almost entirely rock (Progressive Rock) and Metal (Black Metal) but also some folk, classical, electronic, etc so the turntable must be able to handle a very diverse range of textures and styles.

I'll be listening to them through Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones.

The three I'm looking at are the:

Audio-Technica AT-PL50
Vestax Handy Trax
Numark TT200 (and may you recommend a pre-amp for the Numark? The rest have an internal system.)

Which of these do you think is the best?

Also, if there is a turntable in that price-range that you recommend over those three then PLEASE give the info!

Thank you,

p.s. First post... hey guys! :)

Re: A Comparison Question
Welcome to the forum. I've given up on vinyl so I don't have a fact based suggestion, but the Audio-Technica would be my choice.
