OK, I know there are a ton of these, but I really need some guidance. I'm trying to put together a great entry-level system. I just bought a Denon DP-60L from a local record shop, which was tweaked by the record shop owner, who owns the same model. It's in mint condition and dead sexy. It is a direct drive, and I know some people look down on DD's, but I have heard nothing but good things about this model.
What I am looking for is some advice on the other components, what do I need? Pre-amp? Amp? Speakers? I'm looking for suggestions on all of these things, and I'm willing to spend about 1K, give or take. Any help at all in matching up these components with my table would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.
