Hello, im looking to put back in use my Rotel ra 971 mk2 and B&W 602 S2 so im looking for matching CD player and turntable. I have Audioquest type 6 speaker cables and Audioquest Turquoise interconnects. I listen mostly Jazz, guitarists like Jeff Beck, Steve Vai etc etc as well as some electro music... When i purchased that Rotel and B&W's back in 2000 the best budget CD player was Marantz cd 63, 66 ki signature etc etc as it was regarded perfect to calm down the dynamic open sound of Rotel. As you probably know this Rotel doesnt have phono input so im looking for matching turntable with phono pre outs or maybe i should buy separate phono pre amp as Rotel RQ-970? Any suggestions? Im more oriented in buying new CD player(Marantz, Denon?) and used turntable. I have limited budget to spend so i cant buy Marantz cd 6004 from new or some new Rega turntable. Cheers.
