Audio equipment is a low priority in our household. We often have little to nothing left after the bills are paid, so buying the best audio gear is impossible. Fortunately, it is VERY possible to compile a low-cost but good vintage system from discarded-but-good pieces from yesterday. Good thing they're in abundance:) I paid under $1000 for my entire system (described below, including cables & JRiverMC). The one thing missing is a turntable. We have about 100 or so LP's from our crazy youth in the 70's & 80's - when we last owned a table. There are hundreds of tables for sale at any given moment here in Southern California, and many of these would probably sound great in my system without costing too much. I just need a little help from those who've been around long enough to know which of these discarded-but-good pieces from yesterday are worth buying. Please feel free to suggest some turntable models that you think might represent a great value if found on the secondary market. Between craigslist & ebay, the chances are fair to good that your suggested model is, or soon will become, available. Much obliged. Gary
Hello everyone, my name is Joaquim and I'm 19 years old. As a huge pink floyd fan I got myself over the time a few vinyl records, just for collecting them really, since I never had a turntable...( Sadly the world tends to do this thing so called evolving and these are not so popular as I believe they used to). Well this Christmas my mother fondly got me one to allow me to listen to these records as I so much desired. It was very generous of her because although surely it's price is no way near your guy's equipment I know it was not very easy for her to pay. That said you're probably guessing right that is not a high end one, I'll post a link at the end(but if I can't it's a ENCODER TURNTABLE ‘MEMPHIS’ (BLACK)) The problem here is, as someone who religiously dedicates a time of the day to calmly listen to .flac files on the computer I tend to be a little bit picky when it get to music. I obviously don't want to tell her "its not very good and I don't want it" but I want to make a good use of it. The reason for me coming to ask for help being how can I in any way that does not involve spending much money improve it's sound quality? I am aware that turntable put out a little bit of static noise however it feels like its a little bit too much, I am assuming its not the records, since they were never played before, nor the speakers that it has incorporated since i get a lot of static in the headphones aswell... Is there anything I can do? Do I need to be more specific in anyway? Thanks in advance I'll be waiting for a reply. Encoder Turntable ‘Broadway’ (Red) | Bigben EN
