So I am completely new to this. About two years ago after listening to a friend play a couple of his records, I became completely intrigued by vinyl and not really knowing anything I bought a cheap portable Crosley and figured it would hold up for a couple years - turned out 8 months later it broke and wasn't worth fixing. Recently I was very fortunate enough to be gifted a Pro-ject Debut Carbon for my birthday, except now I'm at a lost on how to set it up.
... Would it be worth trading it in for the Pro-ject Debut Carbon USB? I have 30 days left to return it
If someone could kindly inform me first on what I'll need to set up a new system and then some suggestions for each I would really appreciate it. I currently have $500 to spend (college student budget, blame the tuition) but am planning to save another $500 within a few months. Any advice would really help.
Thank you in advance!
