Quoted from trk12fire:
I kind of want to stick to Stern, because I know how to work on them and they seem pretty reliable. Stern machines for the most part are cheaper and get more bang for your buck. I've thought about TNA, but I question the last ability.
If I could add headphones and a bill collector on the same machine, I'd probably go with IMDN. The other IMDN's available in the area are still a bit of a drive to get there.
Understood, I do find that many non pin people seem to be intimidated stepping up to more elaborate pins. Seeing as how you are gearing more for a place to hang for your pin friends I get it, but I still think you might get some more interest from mom and the kids with a step down in pace. If space is not an isuue maybe grab a cheap Hook or the like.... I know the game is lame but you get what I am saying.
