A turntable that plays all types of music well

So I just bought a Hegel H390 and
I owned the h390 and had it paired with the Triton Reference speakers.  Was very pleased with the sound.  I found the Triton to be an excellent value. The company motto is "We make High End Affordable".  I think they retail in the $7000 range in t...
