We use Aiwa compact disc stereo systems
http://www.electronicscloseout.com/aiwxrcomdiss.html ($149) with
phono pre-amps
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-2T4mWKXVZOc/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?i=137SP2
($49, wow these have doubled in price!) and Technics SL1200MK2
turntables http://www.myriskfree.com/tecsl.html ($440).

We bought the SL1200MK2 turntables a few years ago when we had money.
Yep, seems so long ago... Nowadays I would have to go for a much less
expensive turntable, like the Technics SL-BD20D. Although I think
cueing would be pretty confusing to patrons on the SL-BD20D and would
probably require labeling. We secure our headphones at the stations
with cheap little u-shaped plastic thingies. Since our equipment is
mostly in view of our desk, we haven't yet had to resort to a more
secure method.

We also use Eiki 7070 CD/audiocassette players $239

PS: I have had positive experiences with Electronics Closeout and
Crutchfield, but have not purchased from the other 2. I just pulled
them up, so you could see the equipment.
