Great ! My wife got the hi-fi bug from me !!
And I've been planning to sell my Wharfedale 10.4 and upgrade to Focal Chorus
Guess that's out the window for a while...
Anyway she wants to get into vinyl 'cause that's what her father was playing all day long when she grew up; when she read my stack of hi-fi magazines she realised vinyl back with a vengeance!
Budget for Int Amp,tt and speakers is about $ 1650 (or 1300 €)
The system would sit on a big wood cabinet in our bedroom (wood floor, 8mt x 4mt, or 24ft x 12ft if you prefer) facing width wise.
Listening from armchair at about 7-8 ft.
I did estensive research these few last days. I want to keep it simple, less cables , so i'll go with an Integrated Amp with phono input like the Marantz PM8004 or 5004, or Rotel RA line. Other suggestions here?
Now the hard part....no experience on turntables so i'm thinking Project Carbon with Ortofon 2M, or Rega RP1 as these are easy to get in my area and good value/quality, or another in the same price range, under 400€ ?
