Don't bother. It doesn't matter which make you buy, any of the all-in-one record players will damage your records. The originals were only designed for conveneince, not sound qualty or build quality. Few of them were fitted with good quality diamond stylii - most were fitted with cheap emerald stylii, which wear out quickly. Those that were vaguely decent (Fidelity, Dansette, Philips etc.) are now collector's items and sell for hundreds of pounds, if they are in good, usable condition (which is why you cannot find them in charity shops) The modern replicas are even worse. They all have utterly appalling build quality and totally lousy sound quality. If you really want something that will play vinyl well and not damage it, then you need a turntable, a stereo amplifier and a pair of speakers - there is no other way.
