this is my first post on this forum and my goal is: I'm wanting a turntable that can provide me with high quality playback and steady performance.
my question is can the B&O turntables keep up with modern turntables? between looking at the B&O 4004 which seemed to have retailed for around 1100.00 in the early 80's how does it stack up with modern equipment? Looking at many of the newer turntables you are able to drop 2 grand easy into one but how does that stack up vs the older gear?
I guess my main concern here is that i have found several fantastic record deals on Ebay with several old USSR recordings and serveral of my best loved artists and groups still mint and sealed and i want a good record player that i can use for this for solely ex-sealed records...
I would say my upper limit on the player itself would be up to 1500.00usd, are there players out there that can compete with the B&O? minus stylus cost of course.
My system for LP playback would consists of Carver C-4000 preamp (lightly modded) and Carver TFM-35 poweramp with Bower and Wilkens 685s.
I want to eventually upgrade to a tube preamp and amplifier in the future, but one step at a time.
Any help and idea's would be greatly apreciated.
