How can we get music from an IMac and turntable to work on a simple setup?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Looking for somebody that can help us out on this;

 

Im looking for speakers for our non pre-ampred record player (Technics SL-BD20D). I've understood that there is a possibility to get a pre-amp and hook it up to an active speaker. We'd prefer this over a whole amplifier unit + speakers to keep things simple and small. Are there any sets of speakers where we even wouldn't need the pre-amp? Any speakers or setups that you would recommend?

Is it possible to even throw an Imac in there so the sound quality of our computer tunes would improve at the same time?

 

Our budget is 200-400$. (second hand is an option)

 

My apologies if I ask silly questions, I know there's a lot of information on the www but it's very overwhelming if you know next to nothing about audio equipment.

 

Thanks already.

I would recommend an AV receiver, some fairly good units in your budget. I have a HK3490 which has digital input for your mac and phono input for your turntable.

 

Look at Onkyo, Yamaha, Pioneer, Harman Kardon, Denon for good units.

 

Speakers wise you should probably go second hand. You could drop by your local hifi store and ask them for a bundle deal (receiver + speakers).
