Best to try the 47F, which I have a few of. I gave many of these units to all my children to get them interested in vinyl, minor success. I am now working on the grandchildren since some are now adults. The reason I highly recommend the 47F is the full auto features, start, repeat, lift etc. As we all know, full automation is mandatory with the current generation. If they get hooked on vinyl, then they can step up to all the other nonsense. With a 103 or 160 cartridge you get great sound, at a reasonable price. Sound? Well I have other tables, including a Sony x800 which is fully auto and the 47F gives them a run for their money. I also have a VPI Aries with a $2k cartridge and all the accessories, does sound better but not by that much. Also, the beauty of the 47F is that they often come up for sale. However, caution, unless you can pick the unit up, do not buy one unless the seller has and will use all original packing materials and boxes, owtherwise you waste your money.
