View Full Version : Optimum Sound: Turntables & Tone Arms?
12-23-2003, 10:32 AM
I met some guy that collects classical music and he had some turntables I never heard of, they were like 3 thousand dollars each. Word is, you never heard your music like this before.
Anyone well versed in this area?

well i've been looking at some entry level audiophile stuff. the Rega Planar turntable line seems to be a decent starting point for those who don't have 3 grand to dump on a turntable. i need to learn more about the tonearm aspect of things though...

its all about a clean audio path, the thinking being every set of controls in the audio path (gain, volume, eq, faders, effects, bpm counter, etc) worsens the purity of sound
if youre gonna spunk 3 grand on a turntable, you may as well get top of the range 12" crossover speakers, valve amp and phono stage, and a decent audiophile needle
