Is Kenwood a good turntable brand?
Re: Kenwood Turntables KD-500 or KD-600 are good. But, they don’t use crystal oscillators like Technics SL-1200 so the speed can drift with dirty pots. If you already have a Kenwood, or can get one cheap, then great, but I’d advise a technics SL-1200 or even Reloop RP-1200 / Pioneer PLX-1000 over the Kenwood.

Do new turntables sound better?
Generally, the superior build and construction of a vintage turntable will produce better sound. But that depends entirely on the state of that deck’s elements. If just one is off, or you’re spinning with a subpar stylus, that warm vintage sound becomes a muddy mess.
Do vinyls sound better?
Does it sound better than an MP3? Absolutely – vinyl wins this one hands down. Vinyl fans will argue that as it is an end-to-end analogue format, from the recording and pressing to playback, that it more closely reproduces what the artist originally played in the studio. Digital music works much differently.
