Evil Listening to vinyl

So, all the vinyl talk has me itching to get a player and start collecting vinyl.
Any recommendations on brand and type along with speakers to make the Foos sound even better than they already do? Thanks!

What do you want to spend on it?
There are a lot of types you can buy. for 20 dollars til 3000
I have a technics SL D3 bought a second hand for 30 dollars with a new needle and it sounds good, but you can buy a Pro-ject. Thorens, Denon ,JVC or a Technics Sl-1200 MK2 or SL-1210 MK2 ( 300 till 600 dollars 2hand)one of the most known players and very reliable.

Do you wanna play from a old stereo set, or from surround set?

You can read there is no easy answer on your question, I suggest just google and read some hififorums and ask there the same question, you will get for sure an answer.

Thanks for the advice!
I had a Technics many years ago, and I loved it. I just wondered if there was anything better sounding these days. I'll probably go with surround, since I want it to sound the best I can.

If you have a good old stero surround set with a amplifier you maybe have a phone port. if you don't have one you need a pre-amp for your turntable. prices from 25 dollars till 1000 or so, hehe
About a year ago i had the same question, i looked for over 2 months to get the whole picture, of budget, table and what you really need.
good luck with your search

I did a lot of research last year to update my tired Luxman. Pro-ject are a German company making one of the best bang for the buck new budget turntables on the market.

You can spend any kind of money, or go with an older unit and update the stylus. But I found after a lot of listening that the budget Pro-ject gave me the best sound without spending twice the amount. Ortofon cartridge included and all set up, great instructions and excellent German build quality.

Worldwide support - Sumiko in CA are the US distributors, they've been in business 30 years and they swear by them , as do many others. And in my humble opinion as someone that has been spinning vinyl for over 30 years yes there is a definite difference with modern turntable technology, even at the budget end. If you need a phono box, Pro-ject do them to match and they aren't super expensive.

$369.00 US will get you a Matt Black Debut III
