My current set-up:
Polk Monitor 70 speakers
Technics SL-10 turntable
I listen to a ton of music (90%) and the occassional movie. I'm not really interested in surround sound. The music I listen to is mostly rock (Black Keys, Doors, Stones, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Peter Green), but I also enjoy Soul, R&B, Blues.
I like to play my music loud and often, and I haven't really been too happy with the sound of my current set-up, but I don't know what area I'm lacking the most in. I like a warm sound.
I currently have the turntable connected into a small pre-amp, but it is absolutely terrible. I need to crank the volume on my receiver just to hear it. So that has been limiting my vinyl listening a ton. Not sure what the best option would be for that problem.
I have about $1200 to spend.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
