Ok, so my Crosley Stack-O-Matic Varsity record player shat out on me recently after less than a year. Luckily, the company only has a 90-day warranty (way to stand behind your products). After calling into the company, I was told my two options were to send it to them to repair for $45 + shipping (probably looking at $75-80 after all is said and done for a unit that I don't trust) or to find some yokel around here who would be able to fix it, and they would send me all parts for $35 (+ whatever the yokel charges). So basically, it doesn't make much sense to spend all of this money when I can buy a new one.
So to all of you out there with turntables, what do you recommend?
