I will be purchasing a Philips 312 turntable w/ AT cartaridge on Thursday, and this will serve as my first introduction to the world of vinyls. It will run $125, and I was wondering if this seems to be a fair rate? Was this a pretty decent turntable in its day? Did it stack up against Thorens models of the same era? Would it be worth putting a decent cartaridge on latter? The turntable will be used will the following- Sansui TA-500 PSB Alpha A/V (hopefully Epos ESL3s soon!) Thanks.
