quick turntable question

"Put them in a college radio station."

Why?  The well-equipped college stations use PC-based automation, and the poorly equipped ones have a 3.5mm pigtail coming out of the board for the students to hook up their laptops or MP3 players.  Turntables are as irrelevant today as cart machines.

Besides, the QRKs we're discussing in this thread (huge heavy platter driven by a rubber idler wheel), if firmly mounted on a solid base, produced so much rumble during playback that most stations stopped using them at least 30 years ago.
