Hello, I recently caught the hi-fi bug when a friend gave me a Denon AVR 3000 when I expressed to him that I wanted to get into vinyl....again.
I then added a Pro-Ject Debut-Carbon turntable with upgraded acrylic platter, and some vintage Norman Lab Model 82 speakers to get started in playing vinyls. I was then told by a friend that I should upgrade my Denon AVR to a Rega Brio 3 or Rega Mira 3 to get true 2.0 sound.
I was then told from another source that a vintage McIntosh 1700 receiver is a great vintage 2.0 receiver that would rock my world. I am getting a bit confused by both recommendations. I unfortunately don't have a stereo shop that carries Rega for me to listen to.
I would like some input as to what the members of this forum thinks and recommends. I am also open to hear any speaker recommendations since I am not really that convinced by these Norman Labs 82's.
