Pikey Hi bigjdubb! , no I don't think there are any other threads, this might be it!

There's a few other places out there , vinyl engine is one I'm a member at! ... https://www.vinylengine.com
A couple of others spring to mind ... the stevehoffman forum ... https://www.stevehoffman.tv ... the hifiwigwam ... https://www.hifiwigwam.com

There's plenty more including (for more home AV stuff) , the AVforum ... https://www.avforums.com ... there's also facebook groups too!

When it comes to buying I use good old ebay or discogs for second hand stuff , or if you have a local record shop it makes sense to support them if you can!

Meanwhile, new in this last week ... a Division Bell re-issue ...

bigjdubb Is there an existing thread/forum section OCN about the hardware side of vinyl? If not, is there a forum you all would suggest for discussing and learning about the hardware side of things?

Also, are there any decent (trust worthy) places to buy vinyl online? I know I can buy new stuff just about anywhere now but I'm thinking more along the lines of things I would have to buy used.

That turntable has a built-in preamp, no need for phono input.

If you have it bypassed via the switch to use that external preamp, the sound is still being muddied through the USB section of the turntable preamp PCB. There are a view videos that show you how to remove that section and have a true bypass to actually get the full effect of your external preamp.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that your sound is still being screwed with even with the switch set to phono.

Simmons572 Oh dope, never knew this club existed! I will have to get some photos uploaded soon, I am using my dad's player from the 70s-80s, and I am starting to build a collection of vinyls
