Turntable recommendation

hey guys, would you provide a recommendation for a turntable with a budget up to $1,200 please?


Get a used Scheu Analog, the ultimate value for money
I would look at a Rega Planar 3 or a Technics SL-1500C.

Before the direct drive vs. belt drive battle heats up, let me suggest at that price a used belt drive will provide the best sound.  But it could be a bit more of a hassle to get it set up right.
