What TT should I get?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OK, I have a Yamaha HTR 5540 that is connected both digital/optical and analog to a D2X. I am wanting to get into vinyl. So what TT should I look at getting. My preference would be a vintage TT, and I am looking at something like this , but I am still looking around. Or, should I get something more modern. I dont have much of a clue for specs, except what I am reading in reviews. I dont want to go cheap, but I dont need super hi end. Maybe something mid entry level that I can upgrade the cartridge later. I have also heard good reviews on this Stanton. Will I need a pre-amp, or will my D2X take care of that. All good input will be appreciated.

You need a preamp, unless you are running through a receiver, which many already have. I'm not sure if your Yamaha would work. Check out Phonopreamps.com or look into Cambridge Audio's Preamps. If you have a headphone amp with analog in/out I would use that for a volume control. Otherwise make sure you get a preamp that has one. You want MM, not MC.

Here's a good list of budget TTs. I remembering hearing good things about the Rotel and the Denon budget TTs. Also remember you need a decent Cartridge and stylus.
