Hi to everybody , this is my first topic.
I am considering of buying my first turtable since 40 years.
The one and only was a Technics SL2000 + stanton cartridge in the 80s ...
Now I want to start over.
I own Marantz CD6006, PM6006, Audioengine BT adaptor thru Marantz optical/DAC (which sounds very very nice btw) and Wharfedale 3 way 9.5
I am very satisfied for the overall system, but I would like to buy a new turntable
At a first time I thought of buying a good table as Rega P3 2016 5 stars whatfi without its awful Elys2 (I heard it on youtube it is TERRIBLE compared to ortofon or nagaoka),
and immediatly consider it to buy a NAGAOKA mp150 since I heard MP110 is a kind too 'thin' on highs, while the 150 is more accurate and consistent.
But in order to do so, as you all know, I must buy RAISERS (since rega p3 as no VTA on its arm) , lower counterweight (since when the arm is raised it will hit the dustcover when closed)...
I will go for 1200 euros immedieatly. (!) My wife will kill me !
So the other option would be a REGA p1 2016 (5 stars whatfi) but it is Un-tweakable in fact it lacks ANTISKATE (!) and VTA for 300 euros
I was instead considering the option of buying a very cheap dj table OMNITRONIC DD-2250 (180 euros) with a NAGAOKA MP110 (total about 310 euros) ...do you think this combination will it be a waiste of money for the poor quality of the turntable compared
to the very good quality I heard of the nagaoka ??
I was thinking that the option Omnitronic2250 + Naga110 will be better sounding system than a Rega P1 2016 + MM carbon stock at the same price ...since the cartridge is so important... but maybe I am wrong ...what do you think about it ??
Thx you very much indeed
