Questions about Turntables...

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Ben Fong-Torres, Jul 4, 2004.

  1. I've come across a bunch of classic rock records (Zeppelin, Floyd, Van Halen) and was wanting to buy a turntable but not sure what to look for. All I really know is that I need one with a switchable on/off pre-amp output I think. Also I don't really want to spend too much but I want the LP's to sound good. Can you guys recommend some good brands to look at? Or maybe some models that are entry to midlevel in quality.

    How much do you want to spend?
     
  3. Less than 200? Is that unreasonable?
     
  4. Thanks for the info Disconsolate. I'm just curious, what the difference is between inexpensive audiophile turntables like you mentioned or turntables sold at Best Buy, Circuit City, etc?
     
  5. Wow, thanks for all this good information. I think I understand now why investing some decent $ will be worth it. :bigthumb: :wiggle:

    Wow. I would've never known that belt-drive was favored over direct drive.

    It's the complete opposite in the scope of djs...
     
  7. Wow, those are some amazing-looking turntables. Thanks for the pics even though I probably won't be spending enough to get anything near those.
