Entry level turntable for my son

Hello all, 
My 16 year old has the same audio sickness as me. He recently approached me about acquiring a turntable for his system. Any recommendations on the entry level stuff from Rega, project, music hall, etc? Should I stick with the newer stuff or look for an older model like a Planar 3 or a MMF-5? I still use my Linn LP 12,  but I hear the newer ones out there have some nice new features the older entry level stuff didn’t. I don’t think he will be looking to do any modifications in the near future, he just wants to spin some vinyl. 
Thanks in advance!

A 16 year old who just wants to spin some vinyl? As Twain would say the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

I'm with the chakster. A kid who just wants to spin some vinyl, get him a bullet-proof rig. The way I look at it, anyone playing records on anything is going to eventually realize they sound so much better than anything else they will eventually want something even better. But not if it breaks. Or is finicky. So I vote for the tank.

And this has nothing to do with my first table being a Technics. Honest.  lol!
