I am currently looking to acquire my first entry level Hi-Fi system. I have hit a road block in my research because I simply don't understand all of the in's and out's of audio. I have an ever growing collection of vinyl that I have been playing on a USB turn table and budget Audio Engine speakers. I have found that I have invested about $4000 into my vinyl collection and I feel I should really reap the rewards of such a collection.
Currently I am interested in the Rega RP1 with performance pack as the TT.
Next, I am fairly confident with the Clearaudio Nano as the Preamp with phono stage.
I have quite the interest in Magnepan MMG's as I have heard them and I think they're brilliant.
Other than that I have little to no idea when it comes to receivers, amplifiers, and cables. I am entirely open to different suggestions when it comes to the preamp and speakers but not so open to other turn tables. I like the idea of a very minimal and simple TT.
I would appreciate any help, guidance, or information in my exciting entry into the Hi-Fi world!
(Also I am well aware these are all budget components and true Hi-Fi setups cost tenfold more.
