Rather than continue with my previous thread about digitizing records, which helped in my decision to go for the vinyl experience, thought it best to start a more appropriately titled thread.
So, yes, I am all in now and seeking guidance on a new (as in first) deck.
I am still in the advanced beginner stage with this hobby but have no experience with vinyl.
Ok, so I get why musical tastes are an important factor to keep in mind when selecting speakers and amps.
Is this true for turntables?
Would upstream gear (tube vs SS) need to be considered as well?
I feel like I just wandered into a whole new world of technical terminology, design concepts, etc.!
After reading reviews on several brands, my initial candidates are:
- Clearaudio Concept - I like that everything is calibrated at the factory.
- Rega RP 8 - used - 3 vs. 4 footings just makes more sense
- VPI Prime Scout - used
Anyone own or have listened to these?
What other brands to consider?
Unfortunately it is not possible to go listen to anything right now.
