Not sure about your under $40 request.

You can find alot of good stuff on eBay. Technics and Panasonic were "the" turntables to have if you have a system to connect.

I have an SL-1200 from back then, and you can still get all kinds of parts for it. Like a tank.

I still have a Technics SL-6, dunno if I want to sell it yet tho. I'll give it some thought.

Put an advert in your local paper. Who knows.

MRW: You can't be serious, under $40? Even 20-30 years anything in that price range would be considered a toy.

They still manufacture turnbables and cartiridges, and you may need pre-amp with RIAA compensation curve. All of that stuff is going to add up to some bucks if bought new. I would scour eBay and garage sales.

I still have my Infinity Black Widow tonearm with a Shure V15 type IV cartridge, and a rad look Micro Sieki DDX1000 turntable.

You might call a few of the local audio-visual supply houses - the same places that sell and repair stuff for schools, churches and other institutions. They would stand a good chance of knowing where you could pick up a used one - Might even have a few laying around gathering dust in their service department.

Also, as previously mentioned, thrift stores are excellent prospects, although you'll need to be there at exactly the right time.
