Have decided on rega rp1 as my starter turntable. Probably going to pair up with q acoustics 2020i speakers. Really have no idea about an amplifier though, had a look at a couple of Rotel RA-04/SE's on ebay, but not 100% sure this would be a good idea.
Budget is probably £200 for amp, but would ideally like to spend £100-£150. secondhand i feel this is definitely doable
