So I have been trying to resist for a while, but the more I research, the more I want Vinyl. I have done some basic research, and I am hoping to have simply some suggestions on turntables, cartridges, and phono pre-amps that would work well.
I like warming sounding music and listen to many genres. According to what I have read pre-amps can really change the sound of the music with a turntable.
Right now all I have besides headphones and a computer/soundcard is a Schiit Asguard.
From what I have read, for a headphone setup you would need the Turntable, a phono pre-amp, and a headphones amp for a complete setup.
My budget should be anywhere from say 400-600 dollars? I can maybe Adjust but that range seems to give decent fidelity from what I have seen.
Turntables I have been eyeing :
Only Phono Pre-amp I have looked at is the TC-750 : http://www.amazon.com/TC-750-BLACK-Audiophile-Phono-Preamplifier/dp/B000A36LQ4
Again I am hoping for a number of ideas on what I could get and what would be the best for a newbie like myself.
Another thing is accessories for my setup. Are there suggested cleaning supplies/ dust prevention products that you headfiers suggest?
(Location is the Midwest. Close to Kansas City. If location matters at all as far as access to product suggestions)
Thanks for all the help in advance ^_~!
EDIT: I also have some Harman Kardon Sound Sticks III. Nothing super special but I might hook them up to the setup for friends coming over etc.
