Alright I want to collect vinyls too and my girlfriend would love to get a record player.

What would be the best record player.

Preferably one that I can hook up to my speaker system I have on my desk atm.

PlZ

 :(

I've just started the vinyl thing a couple of months back
I've done a lot of research regarding what's the best price/performance turntable and speaker combo
and apparently the Audio Technica (http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT-LP120-USB-Direct-Drive-Professional-Turntable/dp/B002S1CJ2Q) suits my budget, I paired it with Audioengine A5+ and it's been serving me very well since

Bunny recommended the same thing =)

Love that carry case Zanduby, whered you get that? Also, since you mix a little, could you recommend some decent cartridges/needles for a little mixing and a lot of listening?

Carry case was bought at a local store years and years ago. You can stil find them on ebay and other sites.

I've used Shure M44-7 Cartridges for a very long time. They are a great over all needle. They aren't too fancy, but don't sound like ****. I've used them for scratching and general play. I do prefer to play on Ortofons, but they are just too expensive for me.

Thanks for the info mayne!

I'm coming only from a hifi end, but totally agree on Ortofons. The 2m Red is actually really cheap and a fantastic cart for the price. If you are really serious about getting into hifi I would also strongly recommend their MC carts, especially the Quintet line. I've used their moving coil carts for years (Quintet Red and Bronze) and can very obviously hear a difference over MM carts.

When getting into records I usually recommend upgrading Turntable - Speakers - Amp (if needed) - Phono Pre Amp - Cartridge in that order.

Speakers provide the most audible difference in sound quality. Depending on if you use powered speakers or not upgrading an amplifier first/with speakers may be in line. I also recommend upgrading the phono pre before the cart because a moving coil cartridge will require a proper phono pre due to the fact that they are much quieter than moving magnet carts, so upgrading to a really nice cart without a proper preamp may leave you stranded, or sub par sound.

For most people just a decent turntable and nice speakers is more than enough. Don't go upgrading to a really nice cartridge without the other upgrades just because the difference in sound won't be noticeable, or fully realized without a full hifi system.

Yep, there are a lot more important items in your set up before you get to needles. Powered speakers and a good amp would be number one on my list. I have been playing on my SL-1210MK5s for nearly a decade, I have done some work on them twice to make sure the near zero is as reliable as I can get it. Nothing makes for ****ty mixing than a table that can't hold it's speed. As far as hifi stuff, you'll need to take advice from others (like LSB) who are more into the sound part. I have always been more into what makes a better mixer board, or what speakers give me the bass that I want, and even then it's been a good 3-4 years since I've been actively looking at the stuff.

Yeah I'm slightly confused. Just to clarify, you usually have powered speakers or an amp + passive speakers :)

Powered speakers, like the popular Audioengine A5/A2's (The Kanto speakers on MD are a popular clone of these) sound quite nice, and only require a phono pre between the turntable and them. The Audioengine P4's, a similar passive speaker, require the phono pre and a power amp to power the speakers, the benefit being one more variable that you can control in the chain. Having a nice power amp with powered speakers would be no bueno.

I don't think so. I've never heard of anyone scratching with a MC cartridge, and if you are you are doing things terribly wrong =O haha. Maybe something just got lost in translation

Really, a moving coil preamp is the same a a standard phono preamp, just with more gain essentially. Even cheap dedicated phono preamps occasionally allow for MC usage, such as this one

http://www.turntablelab.com/products/pro-ject-phono-box-dc-phono-pre-amp-silver?variant=231669012&gclid=CjwKEAiA7MWyBRDpi5TFqqmm6hMSJAD6GLeAu4I0nQhh6Wb0767fI3gRpXdVGu8g13gPy7bvoMkrQBoCfd7w_wcB

If you have a moving coil cartridge though, its' something you are definitely aware of.

Yeah it's just the amplified speakers and passives.  I wasn't sure which direction that was going either.  I would presume if you have a high-quality preamp or integrated amp, you wouldn't need that.

For most people just a decent turntable and nice speakers is more than enough. Don't go upgrading to a really nice cartridge without the other upgrades just because the difference in sound won't be noticeable, or fully realized without a full hifi system.

Sure, the 2m series is great, but for a Technics 1200 I'd go for the OM or Concorde series. Then you can have a dual purpose DJ/Hi-fi player by just swapping between styli and adjusting the force. The concordes are even specifically made for the Technics (and its clones), so you don't need to mess with mounting and adjusting the cart in a headshell. KAB even sell custom configurations with hi-fi styli on Concorde carts, just because it's easy to setup, and it looks and sounds great. (Ok the compliance of the hi-fi styli won't be 100% optimized for the tonearm mass when using the Concorde, but good enough not to cause much, if any at all, trouble.)

Going the pure hi-fi route all in with expensive speakers, amps, preamps and moving coil carts, I would not go for the Technics anyways. Not without the modifications needed to get it on par with the rest of the system at least. You'd wanna rewire the tonearm, get a tonearm dampener and stuff like that.

Getting started with vinyl one thing is more important than anyting else IMHO, and thats getting a cart with a needle and setup that won't ruin your precious vinyl. Too much or too little force will make the stylus wear the records more than necessary, and an incorrect cart setup will make the tracking bad, and bad tracking equals record wear. Worn down old needles will also tear on your vinyls, so.. get new, decent stuff, and make sure it's setup right.

Again, I'm only coming from the Hifi side, I don't scratch records and never ever will. But you do make a great point for those that want to do both. Being able to easily swap out styli is a must.

And yeah, I'm not a fan of Technics at all for use as a pure listening table.

I agree though, getting records comes first :) Having a decent system will really help you get the most of the hobby thoutg. I think for ~$300 you can get a really decent setup to start though.

Beautiful color...I am such a sucker for colored vinyl. If you don't mind me asking, what do you do for work that allows you to have a record player at work?

Yeh, colored vinyl is nice! I'm a computer tech. We've installed a sound system covering the entire service department in our office and we take turns playing stuff while working. I lost my dance floor when we moved the last time, but I can live with that. :)

Wow...sounds like a pretty stressful work enviroment if you ask me  :rolleyes:

Makes me want to see if I can setup something similar at my office. It's just a tiny little NOC so maybe I could get away with it...

It can be pretty chill around here at times, yes :) Especially when we open our PowerMac G5 that is now made into a liquor cabinet for absinthe :P (Don't worry, I can't remember last time we did that.)

Of course you deserve a turntable at work! Eat your heart out, Harvey Specter! :D

Ok, a few of the better purchases from the last few weeks.

Joanna Newsome - Divers. This album is incredible. The packaging is also fantastic, it comes with individual prints with lyrics to the songs as well.

I slept on the release, was poor and in college. Finally found one in a brick and mortar store for only $30. Snagged it immediately

Haven't listened to them in years. Should snag something by them someday.

I just got this the other day. Been looking for months, then pops up on eBay, sealed, for $9 shipped.

I was hunting Boris records for a while, never did find a reasonably priced copy of Pink in store though. All the Inoxia imports are horrendously expensive.

The new Naked Gods album is quite amazing. Local favorites that really have had heaps of potential for years. Here is a great article about them

Guys like video game music?

Super Hang On OST on its way to me. It's Data Discs fourth release. I'll be buying everything they do!


Should be shipped in the next week or two, Pokemon red/blue OST. You guys don't know how hyped I am for that.

Here's a few of my favorites

Blu & Exile - Below the Heavens. Limited to 5000 releases in the original run (which this is one of). Easily my favorite record I currently own.



J Dilla - Donuts. First record I ever got! Huge fan of Dilla, and I love the Donut slipmats.



Blu & Exile - Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them. Blu & Exile's second album. Not as good as their first album, but still solid, and I love the cover art and vinyl.
