Any suggestions on a cheap but decent record player? Also, where do you buy new records online atm?
I just got myself a turntable and pre-amp as a belated 40th birthday present. I went for a Rega Planar 2 with matching Rega pre-amp but the main difference between the P2 and P1 is a glass platter. Same tonearm and cartridge I think.
In terms of buying vinyl I’ve mainly used Assai. As it’s near my work if we ever go back to the office my disposable income might take a battering!
I get my vinyl from this company. It's really an old fashioned Record Exchange. Quality rated. I have bought quite a few hard to find LPs here M.

Now I need to decide if the Tannoy speakers I got from John Lewis about 25 years ago need upgraded. Or the speaker cable I got from Richer Sounds on Chambers Street at the same time. Is that place still there? Richer Sounds not John Lewis.
Moaty this is a music thread mate , clothes is for another dayNothing too fancy for me, just bought a second hand Aiwa turntable from Ebay.Works fine for me.My amp is Cambridge as is my CD' player,cant remember off hand what my tape deck is.Got them all from that place in Chamber St.Sound Control?My last record was bought in Sainsbury's best of Slade. Sainsbury's is quite good because they like to do specials like coloured vinyl. Got a gold coloured New Boots and Panties. Get quite a lot of vinyl out of charity shops,my second last LP was Deerhoof out Fopp. Not too sniffy to use Amazon.Also have a turntable with a USB connection that I got out of Aldi,works well through an app called Audacity.
Christ all i have is my phone , Spotify premium , a Bose Speaker , Bose noise cancelling headphones and a car stereo that plays Spotify . Reading this i cant decide if i'm modern or old fashioned
Depends on what your buying but can’t go wrong with Juno Records. Also Discogs market place has pretty much every record you might want.
turntable wise, you can get a cheap one, the speakers/amp and needle are more important when it comes to sound.
