You're kidding, right? Crappy belt driven turntables are not what you want.

If you are on a really low budget, I suggest you look into the Gemini XL-500 II. It would be a great starter turntable. Later on, you should definitely move up to technics. The SL-1200 is pretty much the standard these days.

You should also look into getting a decent cartridge. Most turntables come with crap nowadays. I believe stanton still makes a decent DJ cartridge, brb with a link.

Edit: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stanton-40...i_sku=12169332 would be a good cartridge for a beginner.

I just searched ebay and there are four XL-500 IIs. http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories unfortunately, they have been EOLd, alond with pretty much every other decent turntable out there, except the sl-1200mk2/mk5. If you want one for under $500, you gotta buy used.

This would also be a decent cartridge http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d.html/r...6?a=B00006I5SB

If you wanna get into Turntablism then you need to look at the Numarks and Technics 1200/1210/1210Mk3 decks with Stanton Stanton 505 SKII or Ortofon Elektro Concords carts, with a mixer that suits your style.

I've heard that all newer geminis are horrible quality.

Just wait for an XL-500 on eBay. They pop up as BIN pretty often. Also check google shopping. I would, but it won't load for me today.

I'd go for the Gemini Direct-Drive Turntable DJ Package.

They're plastic but functional - S-tone arm and dual start/stop buttons.

The main thing is setting them up properly to get the best out of them.
