CD or Turntable?

If I spent £300 and got the best CD player I could (probably the Marantz CD 6002) and then spent the same money on the best Turntable - which would sound the best?

I guess a lot of you havent heard the Marantz, so any similar one would be a fine comparison

I never heard the marantz but in general at this price I would vote for cd!  But when the budget turn to 4 figure then I think turntables will win!

Sound-per-pound, a good turntable at any price point typically crushes its CD equivalent.....

Re: CD or Turntable?

I don't think it's a case of 'either/or', but ideally (if you have the space/cash) having a selection of kit so you can choose the source and music to best match your mood and situation.

I'm still sitting here listening to vinyl, but will shortly be off to buy one of the new iPods - LPs not being particularly useful when i'm on the move!

Re: CD or Turntable?

pound for pound turntable wins every time mate i have a nad C521bee cd player £200 i als have a budget pro-ject debut iii cost £130 i love the nad but the turntable does sound better. i guess it comes down to how many cds of how much vinyl you own to play on them. why not split your budget and get both and enjoy the bebifits each has to offer.
