Until you decide to take a jump into vinyl, I would think that your Onkyo should be just fine for playing your 50 records. You will need a new phono cartridge as yours is almost definitely the victim of the ravages of time. Take a look at the Ortofon Blue and Red, they are very nice, inexpensive, cartridges, for a bit less, the Audio Techinca AT95E. For a phono stage, only the fittest has survived. The NAD is a nice entree into the sport, but for a few more bucks you should have a look at the Cambridge 640P.
