If you've been wondering what all the renewed hoopla is about vinyl and turntables and analog audio, there is no better starting point than the Music Hall USB-1. This is the turntable we use in our house, and it really is fantastic, just using the stock stylus. With USB, line, and phono outputs, you can plug this into a pair of Audioengine A5s, a traditional stereo system, or your laptop (if you want to make MP3s out of your vinyl collection). The one thing better than the versatility of this turntable is its price. I highly recommend it.
