In memory of the closest thing to a 10 (for me) there was in the 80's.

RIP Tawny.

The song not bad either, used to crank it up back in the day.


:10:

Well first off, its a turntable and not a record player.
I remember JVC, Toshiba, Panasonic, Sony and Marantz made good stuff in the 80's. Not sure about today.

as a starter set up - turntable lab is the way to go.

my 45 rpm is dead on my turntable. no one can repair anything anymore. there is 1 guy in salt lake that can repair turntables and he has a 2 year wait, lol.

thinking about this one:


let me know what you do

What in all do I need?

Still confused after researching.

should I add in that pre amp thing?

Receiver?

what speakers do you recommend for 12X12 room?


Appreciate you simplifying it for me, brother.

you need an amplifier for the turntable

either you get the from an old receiver with a phono port or you buy a preamp or you get a turntable that has a pre amp loaded in

any type of bookshelf speakers will work

most of the turnables at ttl have built in preamps



i currently run turntable + preamp + studio monitor speakers
