- what modern vinyl player?
Can’t read the link in the OP, but 1210s – whilst great for DJing – don’t actually sound that great compared to similarly priced hifi turntables. Rega as above is the standard suggestion at that price, or look at Pro-ject Debut as well. I have one of those and it’s lovely. They also do some with a built in pre-amp, which is great if you’re not fussed about buying a separate one (at a possible small loss of quality).Posted 5 years agothe-muffin-manSubscriber
budget – not much… 300?
…as i dont have any kind of sound system,
So you have no audio equipment at all? No Amp or Speakers? If thats the case second-hand of eBay is the way to go.
If you have an amp you will probably need a phono preamp to boost the signal as most modern amps don’t have phono inputs. I have one of these (which HiFi buffs will turn these nose up at, but it does a decent job )…Posted 5 years ago
Ah you’re starting from scratch, I missed that bit. You can get some amazing bargain hi fi kit on eBay, but you REALLY need to know what you’re looking for – I seem to remember my old housemate picking up a vintage Trio amp which sounded amazing for about 30 quid or something.
(Trio became Kenwood, the amp’s 60sish)Posted 5 years ago
hmmm lots of interesting options.

no speakers, no amps …nothing.
i know a little about speakers , frequency ranges etc, but is there something specific to think about if its only going to be hooked up to something that can take vinyl/ PHONO sound?
and as kind people have stated above, i’d need to watch out AMP wise about if it itself can take vinyl input tooskiMember
Nad amp £25 ebay
Project Genie Mk3 Turntable & Ortofon OM 5E cartridge £150 shop closing down display model retails £250 I think, bought for the looks, I know its wrong, but it plays fine too
Monitor Audio BX2 speakers £150 ebay
Nexus 6i speaker stands car boot £10-steal!
Plus a box load of vinyl from boot sales, charity shops and friends, has made me a very happy Rolling Stones bunny 🙂Posted 5 years agoYoKaiserSubscriber
£300 for everything is tight if your wanting proper hi fi, I’d say get down to your local Richer sounds and ask for a system based on a Project Debut and try to squeeze them for a pair of Q acoustics speakers. Go mid week and try to get the manager, should be able to offer better deals. The Project and Q acoustics will sound and look great but may just stretch your budget (theres always a range of ex display in store too)Posted 5 years agoorganic355Member

70’s B&W, Mordaunt Short, Splendor, or Rogers are the future (or the past) Struggle to get the same sound out of a modern speaer for the money – plus they sound infinitely better with turntables as that is wahat the speakers were designed to reproduce. Ok they might be larger and some might say uglier but the sound from a big wooden box is excellent. Also usually cheap on t’bay.Posted 5 years agoNicknoxxMember
Im running 1210’s with a set of Tapco monitors with zero colour,i run through a soundcraft desk with plug ins and compressors ,limiters and delays,also have 3 samplers to choose the route through and there aint no better sound to be heard-?
I take to opposite approach; an Arcam 10 amp with no filters, tone controls or other gubbins to get in the way.Posted 5 years agoMrSmithMember

sumiko blue point special on a modded planar 3 through a recapped Naim 90/93 and either PMC tb2’s (for sale as they are too big for my room) or a pair of Leema acoustic zero’s.Posted 5 years ago
i’m not so naive to suggest “no better sound to be heard” but it’s not bad 🙂TurnerGuyMember
get down to your local Richer sounds
and prepare to be ripped off…
Just had my hair cut, and older guy comes into the shop and announces he has just bought a bluray player from Richer Sounds – said it needed a ‘special cable’ – they ripped him off with an HDMI cable for £84.
2nd hand Rega Planer 2 with RB250 would be a good bet, will hold its second hand value well.Posted 5 years ago
