Looking to upgrade my turntable.
English

 

I have a very cheap turntable and i'm looking to buy a proper one. My budget is around £300. When i went to the next door shop i found out that there are a lot of things to buy not just the turntable. I'm really not into paying £700 for turntable, amp and speakers. The question is, what sort of stuff i need to play a Rega RP1 or Rega Planar 2? I'm looking for 2nd hand stuff. i don't mind buying a new Rega rp1 but i'm not into paying £400 for speakers and amp since i have no idea about them. 

cheers!


ps i found a very cheap Yamaha DSP -A5 TUNER AND AMP

You need an amp with a built in phono stage or you're going to have to buy a separate phono preamp.
