Good beginer table, that I can upgrade?

Hi all, as you may have seen in the past, I am trying to get into buying a turntable. However I have some other bills I must pay too... so I am looking for a Begining table, say under $300 that I can upgrade later over the years....

So is there a cheap but GOOD turntable, out there that over time I can tweak into a nice machine, without having to buy and sell and buy ect.. whole new TT's over the years.

If so what should I look for?

A great TT is the Denon 47F. Upgradable? No. In the used market these go for about $250 but only one that can be picked up is worth buying. The only upgrade that will be necessary is a good record clamp, a SOTA. When you want to move up better to keep the Denon and buy one of the VPI machines.
Even if you are talking about only the table itself, no arm or cart, I can't think of any choices in your price range. Possibly an older model from Oracle, but again, in that price range? If you want an arm and cartridge as well for that $300, forget it, not going to happen, I don't think. There aren't really a lot of table manufacturers who design tables to be upgraded in the first place, and the ones that are, start way above your budget normally. The best example I can think of would be the VPI Scout, but their starting price is multiples of your budget even used. The good thing about buying a table in your price range, even if you can't upgrade it is that if you do decide to upgrade in the future you should be able to recoup the bulk of your initial investment when selling the table. This would be much different than say spending $1500 to $2000 for a table that can't be upgraded, and then wanting to move up later.
You could find a technics 1200 and do kab mods over time or an ar es1 which you can then do the ms mods to. Either deck can provide extremely high performance when dialed in. there a cheap but GOOD turntable
You can do it. The trick is to see that your final turntable, years away, won't have any of the same parts in it. You'll upgrade in the best bang-for-the-buck order and at one point the cartridge will go, the arm will go and the turntable will go, replaced with something better.

I like a Goldring GL-1 or GL-2 or a Rega for tweaking. At your budget level you'll have to find it used. There are lots of little bits and pieces you can get on eBay for making the motor quieter, damping the bearing shaft, and so on. You can upgrade the stock cartridge. You can rewire the tone arm, then shift arm and cartridge to a better table later.

You can't easily sell the original tone arm, even rewired, so when you replace it with a new and better arm, you shift the rewired arm back to the original table and then sell the old table plus arm and cart as a unit.

VoilĂ , an upgrade track for a turntable that's "too cheap to tweak".
Syntax is right in that a good TT will not be cheap... IF bought in a market which understands what it is. There are plenty of places like thrift shops, Goodwill, and garage sales where one can find seriously good equipment in your budget.

Otherwise, I agree with Tobias.
just wanted to post I went with a Technics S1-M2 for its Rosewood and with some tweaks could work for now. Gonna start with new feet, 4" maple, and wire, then go from there.
Beginer stuff is crap. Analog is very expensive when you are talking about good sound. I hate to sound crass,but this is a case where you run with the big dogs or stay at home. On the other hand, class A CD rigs are affordable.
I would define a Rega P3-24 as a good beginner table.
