Im sure there is already a thread on this....but I couldnt find it. The discussion should be:

1) What is your set-up now?

2) What do you plan on going to in the near future.

3) Any upgrades?



Right now I have a Technics sl-b270 turntable on a technics stereo. Its an old stereo Im pretty sure from the late 80s. Does anyone know when technics stopped making the sl-b270? Anyway my mom actually bought this whole thing for 25 bucks for me from some guy. I had an Onkyo turntable but lost it in a divorce. I think it was this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/VINTAGE-ONKYO-CP-1007A-TURNTABLE-ORIG-BOX-/110684918107?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item19c555d15b


I like both of these turntables, but then again Ive never heard anything considered high quality. But pretty soon I will be coming into a lot of money and some of it I think will be going to this:



Pro-ject Debut III with USB. This way I can enjoy all my albums anywhere I want. I have never heard anything but good reviews from this player. One question I have though is would it sound better on my Technics stereo or my LG BluRay home theatre surround sound system? I guess I'll find out. I think surround sound systems sometimes sound a little cold and hollow for music.

When I do get this I was also thinking about upgrading the platter to acrylic and also getting the speedbox II which maintains speed up to .001 rpms. IT also makes switching from 33 to 45 rpm a breeze.

I own a debut III.... Love it. No complaints at all.

I run it through a Sony 5.1 receiver into 2 pioneer floor speakers. Sounds great to me. I use the 5.1 for movies / blu rays etc, but switch the receiver to "2 channel stereo" for music, because I agee that surround sound doesnt provide the same power.

I have a great Technics from the 70's I got from my wife's mother that replaced my old NAD that I loaned to a friend of mine, which I had since I bought it at 15 from a yard sale for 10 bucks, I have a great NAD receiver & CD player and PSB speakers and a Sony cassette deck, all in all it's a great sounding setup......

I recommend one of these - I don't think they make em anymore but damn this thing is reliable, much better than the Gemini that I used to have. Plus you just push a button and it'll play your records backwards.

1) Rega P1 turntable. NAD C375BEE Integrated Amplifier. And (Embarassed) Bose speakers for now.

2) Saving money for Totem Model-1 Signature speakers.

3) Will eventually upgrade to Rega P3 turntable. And once I get proper speakers I will start saving for Totem Storm Sub sub-woofer.

I have a Dual CS 750-1. I have it since 1998 and I never regretted to have bought it. Really one of the best players Dual has ever made.

Great stuff, all of it. Has anyone ever upgraded their player? Did you notice a difference that was worth the price. Im especially interested in cartridges and stylus.
