1) Goldring GR1.2 (3 Months old), around USD190
2) Pro-ject Xpression mk2 + Phono box SE (10 Months old), around USD320.
Hope somebody can get me advice and information to make the decision. Many thanks
- Hi, I was wondering if you already have a phonostage, then you wouldn't need to buy the PhonoBox SE. You can get the Project ttable for a lower price(if the seller is willing to split the package).
As to the ttables, the rega arm in the Goldring will require shims if you want to change the VTA. Nice thing with the arm is that there are a lot of aftermarket products to tweak it with. The project tonearm can be adjusted in all parameters, including VTA by merely loosening an allen set screw.
These, to me, are the things to consider when you choose between the two turntables you listed above.
