The problem with vinyl is repeated use. Personally, I'd just go for high quality recordings (which seem to be at a minimum these days) in lossless digital format. Get a good DAC and let the amp and speakers take care of the sonic signature.

If you really want to get blown away sometime, stop by a properly setup listening room in a high-end audio store and listen to the B&W 802Ds powered by Krell. Ah, if only we were all made of money.

I'm glad you're really liking the sound: critical music listening is something that has become a little lost over the last few decades with the advent of crappy MP3 players and ear buds.

Well As for Turntable check out Rega:

http://www.musicdirect.com/p-9660-rega-rp1-turntable.aspx


For Speakers no need to look any further then a set of Magnepans.. You can get a set of MMG's reasonable priced but have a great sound.. But Speakers are highly debatable and this is just a start..

For a Warm Sound you would probally want to stick with a Tube Amp or tube devices as already noted here..

Myself I prefer the sound of SACD/DVD-Audio it is Multichannel sound and lossless.. I would like to experiment with a Rega but have not put that on the front burner yet..

I have heard it may take multiple thousand dollars for a Turntable to sound as good as a CD player especially SACD/DVD-A but that is debatable it is just what I have read here and there.. Personally I have not heard a decent turntable in recent years and I always thought when CD's first came out they sounded better then any Record I had at the time..

I would say the best sounding equipment is not going to be up to par in a substandard room so getting an Receiver with Audessy is essential.. It will help correct some small problems with the room and most newer receiver have it on the receiver..

You will also if you want to fine tune the room run an EQ Analyzer to find out what your Room Looks like. you can get a free Room EQ Analyzer from Hometheatershack.com.. I would say get out there and find some local Hi Fi stores or what have you and start listening to the different equipment and you will ultimately be the final say in what sounds good..

You will if asked what should I get tons of people suggesting this brand or that brand.. But ultimately you are going to have to try and getout there and do some comparing for yourself..

But the best bang for the buck would be a good set of speakers and some room treatments..

All I did was buy a Stanton T.92. I have 2 KRK Monitors and a Focusrite Sapphire interface. It's all line level and the pre-amps from the interface are great. I've recorded my dad's old spanish LP's and it sounds amazing. I do a lot sampling myself and have had no complaints at all with the sound quality of this setup. I wouldn't say it's cheap, but very easy and great sound.
