    The secret is to let someone else pay for all the upgrades, then buy it from them.

    The secret is to buy a turntable that works properly from the beginning.

    Perhaps a Palmer and a cart upgrade? Transrotor? Acoustic Solid? Technics SP10 with a 12” Arm and custom plinth?

    I agree, as soon as you give your budget, they always go to the top figure, although the Nottingham Analogue dealer was different and his advice was quite good, more concerned with me achieving my aim, pity he his about 300 miles away.

    I'm probably going to get shot down for this as I never hear any recommendations for them, but I really like my Monarch turntable. Based around a Technics SL1210, it has understated looks, very solid, heavy as f--- and is pretty much plug 'n' play. Speed change is a piece of piss, just flip start lever t'other way. A bit pricey new, but a used example would leave enough change to get a really nice arm/cart.
    Excuse me, are you the Judean People's Front?

    T/T: Inspire Monarch, X200 tonearm, Ortofon 2M Black. Phono: Yaqin MS-22B CD: Densen Beat B400 Plus; Headphone/pre: Myryad Z40; Amp: Audion Silver Night 300b stereo
    Speakers: Zu Omen Def. Atlas Equator interconnects, Atlas Hyper 3.0 speaker cables

    T'other system:
    Echo Dot, Amptastic Mini-1, Celestion 5's, BK XLS-200 DF

    A/V:
    Panasonic 42" plasma, Panasonic Blu Ray, Sony a/v amp, MA Radius speakers, REL Storm sub

    Never heard one to be honest Steve, but new is over budget, will have a look around though. But as I get older I like the sound of plug and play more and more.

    The Inspire Monarch turntable is superb. No doubt but why spend that much on what will only ever be second to a fully refurbished Technics SP10 MK2.

    You don't need to spend that budget on anything else IMO. You could put a SME5 on it with your budget.

    If you want belt drive, the best I've heard is the VPI. It's expensive and belt driven so that rules me out but I've not heard a better rubber bander.

    Regarding Brinkmann products, a new deck plus tonearm is sadly well above your budget. And unless you are willing to buy used, a Technics SP10 plus SME V will also lay beyond your budget.

    You could buy a Thorens 124 in excellent condition for about £1.5K and that will include an arm.
