Music Hall MMF5 or MMF7, whatever the current models are. Plug and play. Come all set up from the dealer. I bought a MMF5 when I got back into analog in 2005 and it definitely was good enough to open my eyes to the virtues of analog - but it did need a Herbies mat. Regas are a good first choice too. Get a Rega cart with it. Not the greatest, but it will allow you to enjoy your table without worrying if it's set up correctly.
The Pioneer PLX -1000 is an EXCELLENT turntable , at $799 will punch with anything under 2K .
However, setup is critical with any TT and if I did not want to take the trouble and expense to master that art, and it is work, I would buy a Rega Planar 3 with Rega cart installed .Rega installed alignment is MUCH more reliable than any other.
