Want to try Analog :
I've got a fairly nice 2 channel, 5.1 system based around Martin Logan Odyssey Speakers, Sunfire Cinema Grand Amp, Nuforce Avp 16 receiver, which doesn't have a phono stage, Benchmark DAC-1 and a Theta data basic II cd transport. I think it sounds pretty good.
My dad recently gave me about 150 albums of mine from a long time ago and most of his, but I don't have TT.
Been reading alot of the posts in the archives to get my feet wet but feel that maybe I could get a little more help from you guys on what to buy based around my present system. I kind of only want to buy used and don't want to get crazy. I've got a lot into my system already, for me at least, and just want to try it out to see if I get the bug. I don't mind tweaking, actually I like it, but if I don't have too, that would be great, as I'm not at all familiar this area of audio.
Budget is around 500.00, tops $1,500.00
Any help on a system, phone stage, TT, cart that would match well with each other and with my system would be greatly appreciated.
