I'm looking to buy a really decent turntable that sounds great, is reasonably priced and won't "chew up" records.
I already have a fantastic set of studio monitors and am looking for an analog addition to my rig. Also, any recommendations for any well mastered records?

I've usually found older turntables do better justice to the quality of vinyl than modern ones do. Ones with thermionic valves instead of transistors are (in my opinion) better for sound as well, although valves have a high premature death rate (the survivors can last many years of regular use), so they can be attention-seeking for repairs.
But learning valve theory and practice isn't that difficult, neither is changing them.
