The turntable is a Lenco L75 with a large plinth and ADA MG-1 air bearing tonearm ($3500) and Denon DL-103R cartridge ($300). The turntable sits on a Nobility Magnetic Levitating stand ($350). Phono cables are Audience Au24SE low z that I bought used ($600) connected to a Jeff Rowland Consummate phono amp ($1000). TTweights record weight and Opera RCM as well ($1000). That's $6750 for the turntable and associated gear to play $2 value village finds.
So that's about 2 1/2 times to 1 for tt vs speakers. But I had to spend a bit to find an amp that works well with the electrostatic speakers. The best so far are my Ray Lumley M-100 tube mono blocks with KT-120 tubes at $4000 including tubes.
