Firstly, I'd like to mention that I'm kinda green as far as HiFi goes thus I have encountered some 'problems' connecting my HiFi set. I've recently bought Marantz PM6004 and decided to hook it up my Rega RP1 turntable and a pair of Monitor BX2 speakers yet I'm not hundred per cent sure if I've done it correctly. I simply connected my turntable to PM6004's phono input and a pair of speakers to Marantz by a simple speaker wire/cable. Is there any thing I should've done in an other way in order to influence my sound quality? Not saying the sound quality itself is weak, it's actually exactly the opposite, it's great although I'd just like to be sure. Is there any need for a particular pre-amp? Should I buy any particular cable?
Another question is - can I connect my speakers and PM6004 to my PC so they can play both turntable music and PC sounds? Not simultaneously, that is - what I would like to achive is to be able to switch between PC and TT whenever I need. If so, what do I need? DAC? Any recommendations on that?
Thanks in advance!
