Buy used. And even then you’re stretching it. You need speakers, the turntable and an amp. Can you find these things for about $40 each? For the amp and speakers, maybe.

But where are you going to find a $40 turntable? Only used.

There is no real advantage in cost to buying powered speakers. The low end is about $100 and they are basically just decent computer workstation speakers. In contrast you can go with the following for well under $100, just add some cheap speaker wire:

This is an updated system that CNET’s Steve Guttenberg came up with in 2012. It’s still under $100 and it the speakers are updated with better tweeters.

Since you’re going with Dayton. They make a really good cheap speaker. You could add a subwoofer, if you need more bass.
