AR is an excellent choice, esp the later "E" models, though the "X" models are also a good value. Be aware that some have experienced reliablity problems with these, although mine has worked perfectly for over 15 years. An alternative is the Rega Planar 3, which can be obtained used for $500 or so, often with an arm. Whatever you end up with, take the time find out how to set it up correctly--it makes ALL the difference. There is an excellent mag titled "The LP is Back," published by Audio Amateur Press that will keep you busy. Barnes & Noble etc. should have it. Have fun.
