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!

I used to have a U-Turn Orbit Custom. It’s a high quality entry level turntable. I had the Ortofon 2M Blue and either the Pluto phono stage which I later upgraded to the Schiit Mani phono stage. This turntable and phono stage should together all be less than $1000.
