    Maybe go to one of the second-hand vinyl record shops. Those guys should know. There's one on Cochrane St.

    do you have a decent amplifier with is compatible with moving magnet/moving coil connectors for your record player as i believe normal audio inputs can either ruin the amp/record player.

    most modern hifi (not home cinema and definitely no mini systems/cinema in a box) amplifiers still have the necessary connectors and plug (MM and MC)

    thanks for all the info. I'm really looking for a second hand portable RP with speakers inside it....not too clued up on the technical stuff mentioned! Just want something simple, second hand, cheapish and ready to be used!

    maybe you should bring your vinyls to these places and demo on their turntables ( assuming they are in good condition), you will blown out of the water with the sound quality

    please note if you're looking for a cheap (and not so cheerful) rp midi system, you should check second hand shops, but knowing their bad build quality, it's unlikely you will find a decent one in good condition as they don't last long over time.

    anyway try searching in ap liu street in sham shui po for electronic brickabak as well occasional bargain

    I've seen the following in Best Electrical at both Diamond Hill and Megabox. GF-350 | Consumer Electronics | Turntable Systems

    Not exactly portable nor second-hand but perhaps suitable.
