A receiver with a phono stage, and a decent headphone jack. X2 on the vintage receiver thread. If you live in a major metro area you may find a good one via Craig's list as they can be pricy to ship.
No...Don't go there! You will be damned for all time! I went there and have suffered immeasurable pleasure and much financial ruin! I got a Pioneer PL-35 at a second hand store with an $20.00 Audio-Technica MM cartridge to go along with the SX-1250..hit a ton of great vinyl at Half-Price Books and at one thirft store scored a 1961 Van Cliburn LP of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 autographed on the back with a message to a fan by Cliburn himself...so far the information in this thread has been quite helpful and I will be a frequent visitor.....vinyl really does have a liquidity that is lacking from most commercial digital releases and there is so much wonderful vinyl from the '70's (my heyday) that is not available in CD format at all. Try to find a Delany and Bonnie or the Charlatans or the Sons of Champlain CD....makes going to a good TT worth the time and effort. Skylab, thanks for the great thread!
Being a music lover i think it's time to have some vinyl to listen at home.
I have an Audio Technica ATH-A700 headphones with a Fiio e7 dac/amp.
For now i just want to listen to music on headphones.
From what i've read, i need a turntable and a phono preamp and an headphone amp.
I really love the design of the Rega RP1 but i don't have a big budget.
What turntable and phono preamp do you recommend, with a 150 200 euros budget.
Should i use a phono preamp connected to my fiio e7 in line in? Or it's better to buy a phono preamp with headphones output?
Sorry with all the questions but i'm quite a noob.
Thanks! I'll try to find a used turtable for a good price. Do you know wich models i should be looking for? I just know the Technics SL-1200 is a nice one.
Later I'll think on the preamp.
