I highly recommend the Rek-O-Cut CVS-14.  You can get a good price on a new
one from Nauck:

It plays 16" records and works really well.  I have mine sitting on a rack
resting on a chunk of heavy granite, sitting on a cement slab floor. Never
the slighest hint of feedback or other vibration this way.
