Default Turntable Help

First off, I'm a college student, meaning I'm short on both space and cash. I'd really like a nice turntable for playing records, but since the records themselves are somewhat pricey, I don't want to spend a ton of cash.
Since I'm on a budget, and definitely a layman when it comes to music enjoyment, I was considering a simple Crosley portable system, but the general internet consensus is that they're poor in quality. I don't need flawless sound quality, but tinny speakers or weird beat problems from a bad turntable would definitely bother me.
Can anyone recommend a good turntable/speaker combination that is generally inexpensive and fairly compact for a casual music listener?

Do not get a Crosley. They require 5 grams of weight and will wear down your records. You also won't be getting sound quality, which kind of defeats the purpose of listening to vinyl in the first place.

If you're really on a budget, I'd recommend maybe a lower-end Technics or Kenwood set-up. You can probably find a few on Craig's List. But stay away from Crosley and Ion no matter what.

Your best bet is a functional vintage like Technics, pioneer, Elac if you can score one.
