I'm new here, so I'm sorry if this is a duplicate post. I searched the first dozen or so pages here and didn't really see what I was looking for.
I'm hoping to make the jump into vinyl. I want something that's gonna open my eyes (ears) to the hi-fi vinyl experience, but I don't have unlimited funds.
If I can get a full setup (TT, amp, speakers) for under $1000, that would be great. But if it's not realistic to get a good setup on that budget, please, tell me that, too.
I've been researching TTs for a while and the Pro-Ject Debut III has stood out so far as a good entry-level TT (affordable, easy to set up, and good sound quality).
After that, my head starts spinning.
Would it be better to go for an integrated amp, or separate? What speakers are worth looking at that would fit in that price range? Do I need to spend more money to really get a setup that will give me a taste of what hi-fi can do?
I don't need more than 2-channel stereo. A headphone jack would be great, as well.
