I have over 400 LP records. About half of them are classical, many of which are European imports (such as DDG, Das Alte Werk, Argo, and Seraphim). Many of my LPs are also jazz (such as Ellington, Davis, Getz, and Modern Jazz Quartet).
Question: what kind of turntable should I purchase by which I can not only listen to my records but record them? Would something like an Audio-Technica turntable for about $125 be better than a direct drive turntable (for $255)? I would be using Bose and Audio-Technica headphones to do the recording, as I have a hearing loss. I am on a limited budget. This would be for my own personal use.
