Hello all. First post here.
tl;dr; below is a list of equipment I currently have and I'd like to put together a first setup for listening mostly used / some new vinyl and cds.
I just signed a lease on a new apartment and while looking at the place I noticed there was a used / new record and cd store in the bottom floor of my building. I decided to go in and check out the store and was instantly blown away by the amount of great albums they had and the cool relaxing atmosphere of the place. Not to mention the owner is an American Lit. professor at a nearby college and seems like he knows his stuff. So after seeing this place I knew I HAD to get a turntable but I would like to get some advice here as to which model I should look at and what kind of additional equipment I would need to complete a sound system. I already have a few things but not sure how they will work together in the same ecosystem. I'll just list them:
-2 KRK Rokit6 studio monitors (http://www.krksys.com/krk-studio-monitor-speakers/rokit/rokit-6.html)
-Onkyo P-301 Preamp
-Onkyo M-501 Power Amp (http://www.onkyousa.com/model.cfm?m=M-501&class=Amplifier&p=i)
I realize the power amp is useless with the self powered speakers but just figured I'd list everything I've got.
