I've been researching for a while, and I was down to the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon or the Rega RP1. I'm pretty sure I've decided on the Debut Carbon after reading a couple of good reviews, but now I'm having trouble picking out a preamp (or amp, receiver, anything that's going to give me power) and speakers. I'd like to keep everything under $1000, so that leaves me some room to get a nice entry level system going.
Sonos speakers have peaked my interest because of their ability to stream music to multiple locations which is something I plan to upgrade to sometime after this initial investment, so if anyone knows anything about hooking phono up to sonos, please share.
But right now I'm looking for a decent entry+ level preamp and speakers. I mostly listen to classic rock, blues rock, motown, and 90s alternative. Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Led Zeppelin, Oasis, the White Stripes, etc...
