Im not sure what to do, so Id be happy if you could help me :)
Thing is this: Should I go ´vinyl´ or not? The point is, that when I go vinyl, I ´have to´. As a student it will cost me incredibly lots of time because in my small room I have to move things (and I cant move them to another place for just a week to find out if I like vinyl enough). So, I have an Onkyo TX-SR501 + DV-SP501 DVD player, connected by a digital audio cable.
I also have some Jamo 704 speakers (big floorstanding 3-way) and I listen a lot to classical music and Bob Dylan and other folk artists. Most of the music is either played by my DVD player or via my PC and Behringer UCA222 soundcard, FLACs.
Ive always understood vinyl's better than CDs, but SACD's are also better. Im thinking of a turntable setup as a poor man's SACD setup.
1st: Im a poor student, is it worth it to buy vinyls of the CDs I have, or is it a waste of money? Think of the Klavierkonzerte by Mozart, the nine symphonies of Beethoven, a collection of Requiem recordings of Mozart... etc. I all have them in FLAC on my PC and Sansa Clip + and on CDs (DDD mostly).
2nd: I can have a turntable (Technics) from my parents, and I can get a small Technics amp from the 80s from my brother. The amp is not to be connected to my speakers, but I think I could use the tape loop perfectly to plug in the turntable in the Technics amp, and the tape out to my Onkyo receiver. Is that OK?
3rd: Besides costs, it'll cost me too a lot of room. Is that worth it too? Or wont I hear that much of a big difference of improved soundstage (what's Im going for) in a small student's room?
4th: A PlayStation One should have a vinyl sound and is pretty cheap too; perhaps a better alternative? (Im planning on buying one too though, quite curious how it sounds)
Thanks for reading! :)
