I do have the Technics SL 1200 mk5 paired with a rockit 5 G3 or on k7xx with fiio e17k from a decent pre-amp. I listen mainly to flacs and hi res music but the classic analog sound of vinyl is so refreshingly good and satisfying (not to mention a good conversation piece for anyone who visit the house). Imagine a Miles Davis album playing on a relatively bright monitor speaker or bright (ish) open ear k7xx. Match made in heaven. I'm still using the shure m44g that the dj installed, still sounds great!
It is difficult to get a hold of the classic TTs on a non-junkyard/filthy garage sourced TT and also since the newer ones that are decent are either overpriced or over hyped that pricetags get close to a secondhand car.
I tracked down a local DJ who mainly does electronic turntables and bought the TT secondhand stock from a famous store that sells high end turntables and DJ gears. It was slightly used while that DJ was on the road so i got good deal for half the market rice of secondhand Sl 1200s. I'm also glad it was well treated before it was sold to a dj (who hardly played the TT and stocked on a solid Road Ready case. ). My whole setup costed me around 800usd inc TT, pro-ject pre amp, rokit 5 g3 and decent cables and line level controller. Not that expensive to get into vinyl with decent sounding setup.
I'd like to see a drop over cleaning tools OR alignemtn kits with cleaing kits plus anreference test vinyl.
