Hi guys, fresh meat here.
I'm sure you get lots of these posts, new to vinyl in that I've not played any for about 15years and no longer have the cheap turntable that came with my old pioneer separates system.
I'm looking for something that won't break the bank and is potentially upgradeable.
I've been looking at the Rega Planar 1, Audio Technica AT-LP120, Pro-Ject Essential III A
I understand the AT-LP120 has a built in pre amp of questionable quality and theres a potential upgrade in disabling it, the other 2 i'd need a decent pre-amp for.
The TT will be then plugged into my Onkyo home cinema amp and run through that system. Thoughts?
I've also got my eye on an older TECHNICS SL-QD33 I've seen locally at around £20 is this a decent buy?
The last thing I wanted to ask was regarding the position of the TT, I have a perfect space for it in terms of my existing set up but this would place it about 6inch above my cinema sub which could be a massive problem. I have my receiver/tv box and sub in one of these http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/h7AAAOSwB ... -l1600.jpg
with my ps4 and centre speaker on top. The TT would also sit on there.
I'm thinking you're all gonna tell me this is a big NO, in which case I'd have to have a rethink as to where I could put it which would then impact cable length.
Thanks in advance for any help and advice.
