    I have this and I love it. Still using the stock cartridge for now and it sounds great.

    ~hundred bucks over your stated price range

    I would steer clear of the TEAC or crowley or any of that bullshit. Liable to ruin your records with players like that

    Whoops, he said $250. Honestly I would save up longer and get something better. You are going to use it a lot so might as well get something good. For $300-400 you can get a used Technics SL-1200 off Craigslist in good condition. It's built like a tank, good sound, and has had and will continue to have excellent resale value (they don't make them anymore and they are popukar with DJs so the demand is there)

    Then I'd say spend $100 or so on a new cart. I like high output MC but thqt's a matter of preference.

    The table ods suggested is also a well-respected budget table.

    Nice. Next time I come down I'll have to bring my copy and we can compare. I have the 2000 Sympathy For the Record Industry reissue with a different mix. Lots of people seem to hate the original mix, but an equal number seem to hate the reissue. I'm interested to see the sound difference.

    You've piqued my interest too - what don't people like about the two different mixes?

    Both are said to be muddy and people also complain that the original is too flat while the remaster overcompensates with vocals and guitars.

    Gotcha; guess I'll find out about the flatness of the original later today.

    I've never had much of a problem with the remaster, but it's also my least favorite of the original three Gun Club albums, and I'd put it behind Mother Juno as well. It's still a killer album.

    Like Icey said, you should save a bit for a better table. For $300-400 you can get some really nice shit. Personally, if I had that money I'd get a vintage Thorens and live my days in audiophilic bliss. Regardless, your options expand greatly at that price point. What you should do until then is throw down the money on a new cartridge before you damage your records any further. Read reviews & ask questions on audio forums.

    Damn, I just looked at the repress info from 2009: Grab this reissue folks. The one I have is already selling for $50+ a copy.

    Could it be "out of stock" because it hasn't been released yet?

    And hot damn, RDJ was just the best. I defy anyone to show me a producer more forward-thinking AND catchy-as-hell than Aphex.

    Went digging in Petaluma today and for $29 I picked up:

    Nick Lowe - Labour of Lust
    Bobby Whitlock - S/T
    The Temptations - Live at the Copa
    Ray Charles - Ray Charles (Coronet Records, not the Atlantic record of the same name)
    Johnny Rivers - At the Whiskey a Go Go
    Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy
    Guttermouth - Friendly People
    Isaac Hayes - Shaft
    Johnny Cash - Live at Folsom Prison
    Johnny Cash - This is Johnny Cash
    Allman Brothers Band - Eat a Peach
    CCR - The Royal Albert Hall Concert

    Incidentally, I already have a nice copy of "Labour of Lust," so I'll sell that cheap to anyone who's interested. Probably my favorite Rockpile record; this and Dave Edmunds' "Repeat When Necessary" are so good.

    Well, the US editions should be really easy to find. I've seen those a few places. The Warp ones apparently had multiple manufacturing problems and only got shipped out a couple of weeks ago, so maybe more of those will surface soon.

    Yeah, it's pretty awesome. And I just noticed that I snagged an og stereo copy of At Folsom Prison, they actually bleeped out "shit." You know, "this is being recorded for a record on Columbia Records, so you can't say hell or *bleeeep* or any of that." Awesome!

    Funny that dude was asking about a good turntable to get and ods.. mentioned he had a Music Hall mmf-2.2. I finally bought mine about a week ago and it showed up today! Probably the biggest purchase I've ever made and I'm definitely hyped on this thing.
