Budget Linear track table?

Does this animal even exist? I ask because my dad had a B&O Linear table that sounded really nice, it ws $500 new wich in todays dollars would make it around $2k I guess. I know this is probably a dumb question but all the same does anyone make a entry level Linear table? thanks Chad
Why dont more care for the older BO tables? Seems to me they were not terrible, maybe not the end all be all but were they not easy on the ears?
I had mine for 25 years before the motor in the arm gave out, and I've literally played 10 of thousands of albums on it. I'm buying another I found on Ebay.

I have done a search fot linear tracking turntables on Google. I found two references for you :http://forum.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/frr.pl?ranlg&1047536335&openfrom&21&4
also a comment on another site about budget linear tracking tables, with comments on B&O tables:http://www.stereomanuals.com/articles/jack-holmes_linear-turntables.htm Now if only those who monitor these written words will make sure the links come thru;)-~
