Want to start my analog journey
Ok am not in a place where I can audition turntables and phono preamps so I need some advice.
I would like a system that won't exaggerate the highs if my Thiels, but complement them with warm mids. I have a BAT vk-3ix preamp with a Parasound A21 amp and Thiel CS2.4's. Based on a total budget of $2500 i need advice on a turntable, phono preamp, a cartridge and a cable. I know it's not a lot of cash, but I will be able to upgrade cartridge and cable at a latter date so I can "sacrifice" up front a little there if it means better core gear. I'm open to new or used.
