Hey, I'm looking for a cheap turntable so I can sample my CDs onto my MPC renaissance.

Try the Gemini CDJ700 or the high end MDJ1000. They are just as sturdy as the Pioneer CDJs at a quarter of the price.

Or the Numark NDX500 is pretty cheap too.

Get a Denon for great quality.

go to the pawn shop / junk store, get one there.
its really not going to matter which one you get for sampling unless you are really a power user looking for advanced features you just cant live without.

I don't understand? Do you mean a turntable cd player hybrid or what?
If you want to sample CDs then put the CD in your computer and rip it.
Hm.......wait ....probably I'm too old. How old is your computer. I ask cause AFAIK more and more 'modern' computers doesn't have a CD/DVD drive today.
Well then read what tapedeck wrote :)

peace

I think a Richie comment is necessary for good measure.

Apparently the first model Playstation 1's are supposed to have highly coveted a/d or dac's in them that are comparable to $6000 USD audiophile grade players:

Or type on google Playstation 1 audiophile. I only sample off my Playstation 1 because I only sample more "analog" things. It makes my beats sound more "soulful" and has better swing too. I would have ripped my Audio cd's using my Plextor SCSI drive using EAC but I realized that sampling direct wav files was foolish and not the "real" way to do things.
