I also have TC-750 and it is a mighty fine phono preamp - and quite unbelievable at the price.  Its sole limitation is a relatively low headroom - which means high(er) output cartridge and really hot recording can bring it into clipping/overload.   More important than SNR and THD in phono preamp is deviation from the RIAA curve. Here, + - 0.25 dB 20Hz-20kHzis considered excellent; not many preamps achieve this or better. This requires precise resistors and capacitors ( or...
I recommend leaving PC out  of this. Reason ? Ground loop(s) - via USB etc. It can be done, but it can be tricky and each and every combination of hardware might react a bit different. There are Korg recorders that also support DSD and PCM up to 192/24 - but MR-1, MR-1000 and MR-2000S are discontinued and hard to get. I would recommend Tascam DA-3000 - if budget allows. DA-3000 also doubles as a very high quality DAC and headphone amp and is perhaps the most cost effective...
Depends how the wiring is done. Due to the additional troubles with ground wire, lots of Technics SL 1200/1210 were modified so that separate grounding cable is no longer required. Not the best solution, but more "practical". There are other TTs using the same grounding arrangement . I am unfortunately not familiar with your unit.  You can always use an ohmmeter in order to check if and how your turntable is connected to ground. It is the best way of establishing if the...
Please read the most of the thread - covered many times before. Your question is similar to:  I want to win a F1 or Indy race. Do I need a motor ? I need a motor? What is the cheapest ?  It does not work that way. Decoding vinyl to digital is perhaps the toughest challenge in analog - if quality result is to be expected.  Although there are cheaper phono preamps, buying anything below the...
You need a phono preamp. What is your budget ?
Collateral damage # XY? :     Disclaimer: no affiliation with the manufacturer/seller, just thought Thorens users might find this interesating.
A cool movie about music ( ands what goes with it) college with some surprising " I can do bass Havee meee" :  
As Permostat sold by pickupnaald.nl ( a VERY good supplier/source )  http://www.pickupnaald.nl/catalogsearch/result/?form_key=vAS9pfUV5dVfPqNb&q=permostat is a Milty product in a package with different graphics than what looks to be the last one from UK links, that may be stocks from the past. From what I understand, Permostat is no longer being made/available - so better hurry and stock up before is too late.  Post are very apprehensive regarding chemicals. For a reason -...
