Quad Vena is great recommendation. Look no further, I suggest.

That Quad Vena looks amazing! Not sure if its quite in my budget though, I might try and find one on ebay a bit cheaper if I can, if not there seems to be a few alternatives available. So if i stick with the project carbon and manage to find an integrated amp all I need is a passive speaker I believe.
The JBL JRX 215 seems to have some good reviews at a decent price, again I am open to suggestions. Most of what I play will be Indie/Rock/Metal which I know can influence the speaker choice.
The Quad Vena looks great but think I'd have to try and find one second hand due to cost. Was looking at the Denon PMA-800NE as a slightly cheaper alternative.
Still struggling to settle on a speaker as I'm not entirely sure what to look for. Also I am unsure on what the power output on them means for compatability, for example the Denon puts out 85W per channel whereas the JBL speaker says 250W. Does this mean they cant be used together and if so why (just out of curiosirty)?
Connection wise can I just use standard cables like RCA and whatever else comes in the box, I've seen a few people mention buying specialised cables which sound like another expense but I'm not sure if theyre necessary?
Feel like I'm asking a lot of basic questions so sorry about that I appreciate all the feedback!
Hello Oliver! Im a little late to the party and haven't read the entire thread so forgive me if I'm asking stuff thats already been covered.
Whats your budget after your turntable purchase?
If you are trying to just go active, check out Totem Kin Play ($750 new from tmr right now), Kanto Tuk, Adam T5v or T7v, Dynaudio X14a, Dynaudio Xeo 3.
Some of these have on board dacs some do not. Some will keep the signal all analogue which may be important for you since you are doing vinyl.
I'd look into Schiit Audio for decent inexpensive phono preamp or dac.
