    So I have a lot of vinyl records laying around, some good ones, and I have heard vinyl is actually the best for listening quality (analog vs. digital). I have a record player but its my parents old one and not very good. I'm looking to find a high quality one under $100 if possible. Anybody an audiophile around here?

    true true, i just dont know which ones on ebay would be classified as good or bad either. i'm looking for like a MIM Fender of record players. Good, cheap, versatile, not the craziest highest cost and quality, but still very good and reliable.

    I know it's a bit (not much) more than you want to spend, but:

    NAD 533

    I'm very satisfied with mine. They make a newer version too, the 553, I think. Amazing price/value ratio. Check ebay, of course.

    I collect new-issue vinyl records and one of the best places I have found to order albums is actually http://www.circuitcity.com/

    I have bought a bunch of albums from ebay, also.

    For a list of titles that I have, check http://www.myspace.com/barthanatos/
