Charlie, the table which engenders the most press regarding set up is the Linn LP-12. While a pretty good value used (NOT new - MANY better choices at the price point), it does require proper set up by a QUALIFIED "tweakologist." I think a lot of people have bad experiences with this table when they undertake "surgery" on their own, then are astounded that they end up with a poor sounding result. If you have a Linn dealer at your disposal, you may want to consider a used LP-12. I picked up a used one, and have been fairly satisfied with it. If so, AVOID Linn's pricey upgrades (Lingo in particular), as the table can be maxed-out in a much more cost-effective way than the Linn "upgrade path" (which is a "downgrade path" for your bank account). I've had an LP-12 for about 6 years, and only now do I start to feel the itch for something better/different. All in all, it plays music pretty well, there are some great aftermarket upgrades/improvements, if not treated like a Close 'n' Play it will retain it's setup pretty well, and lastly, it is attainable within your budget. Hope this helps. Best regards, -John
