Record player/turntable help! My adult daughter wants to go vinyl...

and is overwhelmed with choices. I’m not much help technology wise.
Her budget is $150 max.
Any input??
She doesn’t have a big speaker system but does have a big smart TV with a decent sound bar.
Any all-in-ones that are good? With connections to her current iPhone? Recording options for flash drives?
She likes retro-looking.

Thanks, buds, in advance
