Until earlier today I didn't even realise that the turntable I'd been looking at didn't have speakers! Not to mention the 1p piece sellotaped to it's arm! What is the world coming to???
It's my son's 21st soon and I want to buy him a "record player" that will allow him to play all mine and my husband's old vinyls (there's Led Zep IV in there with gatefold sleeve so he better love and care for it as I did!!). These will be gifted to him on his 21st.
My budget really is around the £500 mark and I was wondering whether any of you experts can let me know if this combo is ok? Also, can you recommend a good store where I'm not spoken to as if I'm a bit thick when I ring up to place the order? (Dave at one store today told me I might as well keep my money if I was spending less than £800 - nice |() Also, i live in the middle of nowhere so I'll need to buy via t'interweb or via phone
So, here goes...
Denon PMA520AE - (about £130) - this was Hi-Fi corner
Q Acoustics 2020i - (about £130) - this was Sevenoaks Sound and Vision
and can't decide between:
Pro-Ject Debut Carbon at £325 - hi-fi corner or
Pro-Ject Essentials 2 at £209 - hi-fi corner
I know a lot of you recommend the Riga RP1 so any advise would be GREAT!
