From around 1984-1990, I happily listened to a budget system built around an Onkyo receiver, an Onkyo 1130P table and Spica TC50 speakers. Since you are listening to Innersound Eros MkII speakers, yours is not truly a budget system. I think you will be happier once you have invested more in your front end.
I'm not familiar with your equipment, But I can tell you that if you don't like the vinyl "ritual", you won't like vinyl. Vinyl demands work. You gotta keep 'em clean, keep the stylus clean, put 'em back in the sleeve without touching the grooves. Your hands need to be clean. No eating a greasy snack like potato chips and turning over the record. Then too, you have to get up and change the record every 20 minutes. And if you don't like the song that is playing, you can FF to the next one. CD's are convenient. And if you're into convenience, then vinyl is not for you. However if you like the ritual and enjoy hanging out at the Goodwills and other thrift stores hunting for your next fix, you will be handsomely rewarded.
Will your present vinyl rig outdo your ceedee rig? I'm not sure. But it only took a Dual 1237 with Stanton cartridge to make me and the Theta Miles CDP take notice.
The PS AUDIO is in the mail now, I believe I am going to hook it up to a tape loop on my Rotel and use it as my volume control, I used to love records, and I know about cleaning and all that, I was a DJ back in the early mid 80's and it was all vinyl then. One thing that has me excited is the very thing Artemus made note of, I want to listen to deeper tracks and Vinyl will force me to do that, I think the convenience of CD can be a bad thing, I am really pumped about this new medium! I will add pics when it is up and running, thanks again for taking time to add to my post
if you are disabled and on a fixed income, you should be more specific, you just said that you were in a bad financial situation, and you want to spend what little money you have on audio, that is what i was saying was not a good idea, but hey spend you money on whatever you want, i'm not trying to piss anybody off.
