I'm a complete noob when it comes to this area, so I apologize for this question.

I've seen you post about this player many times and I do plan on checking it out. My question is will I need to buy speakers, an amp, or anything else that I can't think of right now?

You'll need speakers, a receiver, and a (maybe) phono preamp. Some receivers already have a built-in phono preamp, but not all. Any turntable that doesn't require a phono preamp (Crosley, other low end stuff) is probably not worth using.

I assembled the majority of my setup from yard sales and my parents' basement, so I might not be the best person to ask about new gear, but I will throw in a plug for the U-Turn Orbit turntable. Great price, and easily competitive with much more expensive models.
Yes, you'd need speakers ... the LP120 has an internal preamp, so, if you have powered speakers with a built in amplifier you can connect the turntable directly to the speakers. If the speakers are not powered you will need a receiver and/or amplifier.

I run the turntable into my receiver and the same speakers that are connected to my TV. It's not technically the best "audiophille" set-up but it works.
Thanks guys. I'm a little less of a noob now
