I'm looking to buy a turntable (looking at the Technics SL-1200 Mk2, as that seems to be the common starting point) and I had a question about the preamp. I just recently bought an amp/headphone combo that I intend to use the TT with, but I just wanted to make sure it'd work.
I'm not quite sure, but do turntables require a preamp to use? Could I just use RCA to feed it into my Audio-Gd C-2 amplifier (that I have going to my K702s)? If not, I have a pre-amp integrated with my C-2, could I loop it from the C-2 to the TT back to the C-2?
Also, any comparable (same price-range) TT's that I should be looking at? How does the Rega P-1 stack up against the SL-1200? Any others I should be aware of?
