Hey,
My record player dates to the 70s and the brand is Project One. It's been a decent player, but I'd like to upgrade. When I look online at record players seems like there are a few for $100-200 and then the prices go WAY up. I'd also like to get a new/used receiver. I have a nice Onkyo 5.1 surround receiver for watching movies, but I'd like to go with a 2 channel stereo unit for LPs. Anyone know any hot tips for good LP players/stereo receivers which can be bought new at a decent price, or older models which are proven players that can be commonly picked up used? Thanks!
-Jacy

I just have a shitty Sony one. Pioneer DJ turntables are readily available at online stores.

I bought a Rega record player four months ago and it has surpassed by far my expectations. I was behind a Technics or Sony but the guy from a shop suggested me to check out Rega as a suitable record player if you're a vinyl freak. It's a very sober player, almost no functions but every cent you pay is worth the incredible sound fidelity. The only problem is the price. I was awaiting for ages to change my old turnable and once the moment arrived I dind't mind to spent a good sum on it. I paid near $615 for the record player and nearly $240 for the needble/cartidge (there are some of these that are cheaper). Maybe it sounds insane but considering that there are records on my collection that almost cost the same I tought that my LPs deserve such a treatment.

I use a Technics SL1210, like the DJ's use! Its a no frills, functional warhorse, I have had it for about 5 years, its very user friendly and I have no complaints.

I work in DVD video so I know something about DVD players, and with DVD players you can pay a lot for added features but typically a cheapo gives just as good picture and sound. I'd worry a DJ turntable would be higher priced for features added for DJs and not just listening, but DJ ones are built more solid for sure. There is a huge amount of stuff available due to the hifi analog revival with $5000 LP players and $30,000 all tube amps. The problem is noone is making good mid price 2 channel stereos any more as 2 channel is thought of as a budget item. You can get a really nice 5.1 receiver with a subwoofer for $400ish, but you are paying for the extra channels you will never use for a stereo LP...

thank you, I will check these out. Goab your's sounds super nice but I think my wife would kill me! I do agree though that $1000 for something you will use daily for many years is a very good investment, and yes especially when sometimes you are paying $100 just to have a record, it better sound good!

These look really good as well. I like that each has upgrade items. I just noticed my first "New Topic" post to the board I managed to spell "players" "palyers".....and English is my native language Embarassed

Drooool. If it sounds half as good as it looks, I'm there, as soon as I sell a kidney. Just imagine how crisp and clean live Beherit bootleg LPs would sound on this Very Happy

I as well have a Rega, Planar 2 model and it's fucking great. I run it through a older Harmon/Kardon 230E amp and it's sound is killer. I spent way too long putting up with shitty stereo systems that I figured it was time to do my collection justice and I got an incredible deal on the shit too.
Without a doubt I would recommend a Rega turntable though.
A friend of mine had an old Marantz turntable too that I've seen around a few times relatively cheap and it sounded excellent considering it's cost.

yes i would agree with this also having dj'd with turntables for years. technics were BBC standard equipment in the analogue days.
budget wise any reasonable dance "dj' type turntable will do. you can also play around with some of the features like reverse and pitch to make those records even more hell bound satanic.

I'm using a PROJECT Debut III belt drive turntable with a speed box...you get the best sound with a belt drive unit...
