I've seen listening stations set up in existing study carrels that used
separate stereo components, but one's utilizing a basic bookshelf system
work well and take up less space.
You'll want at least one record turntable, but not something needed at
every station.

As with all electronics, you can spend as much or as little money as you
have. I'd recommend a nice mid-range setup.

Buy good quality headphones, with plugs that match the components. You
don't want to have to use adaptors to change plug size. Checkout
headphones at a desk, do not leave with the listening stations
(headphones will disappear).
