RE: Setup Upgrade Question

Hi guys,

Need some help deciding what to upgrade. At the moment my set up is:

Rotel RA-11

Polk RTiA1

Rega RP1

Was thinking of upgrading my TT with my heart set on a Pro-ject RPM9.2 with an Ortofon 2M Bronze (unless there are any other recommendations for a cartdige) and was wondering if my amp and speakers would do this TT any justice.

Keeping in mind this is only the first stage and I slowly plan on upgrading my system to eventually an amp+phono stage and speakers.

Or should I just keep saving and get a better amp and phono first?

 

Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Hi flyhigh welcome to the madhouse!

You do not mention your room size but if you are happy with amplifier / speaker synergy the I would go for your turntable.

I have not heard your speakers but they got good reviews and the amp looks good too.

The only thing I would suggest is looking at one of the Grado Prestige cartridges in place of the Ortofon but hey, its your choice. Smile

Thanks for the welcome and reply.

The room is about 3.5x4 metres and the cartridge was what came recommended in the pack but I'll look into your suggestion

 

Thanks
