If you go with the base model I would suggest upgrading the stylus at some point, but it isn't an immediate necessity. sangvincent
getting that 2nd one for my b-day I think. I sent the link to my mom and Andrea told me that my mom bought one. what's the best place to buy records online?
Going to a record store is always a lot of fun because you may find something you didn't think about getting but want to own. It's also just cool to find something you may not have known existed or get recommendations from the folks that work there (looking at you A$AP Rosko). I end up spending more money than I mean to when I go to stores like that though.
I do buy online at times if the price is cheap or if it's directly from the artist. Amazon.com has some cheap Vinyl every now and then (and free shipping if you have Prime). Insound is a good one (having a hip hop sale for the next few days) and I've found records on Discogs in the past. Also, FatPossum.com is for a record label but they've got a bunch of good artists and occasionally (every 4-6 months) will do a $10 record sale where most of there stuff can be bought for $10.
