I'll just keep this short and sweet.

I'm thinking about starting a vinyl collection.
I know where to get all the records I'd like.
I don't have a record player.
My budget is around £100... £125 at an absolute maximum for a decent record player.
What is the best looking and sounding record player I can get that doesn't break my budget?

 

Quality of sound doesn't need to be amazing, but at least acceptable.

Honestly, I would look at garage sales for an older one. One that came out back when vynil were popular. Those I would think have best sound still. Maybe ask a few DJ places (online even) if they have an old one they aren't using or would be willing to sell you.

Now... Speakers, I would stick with a Bose System speaker set. Although, I hear the Beats speakers are great but expencive just as the Bose. I think Bose has the best sound overall.
