    Turntable Question

    Question for the hi(fi)ve mind. Currently running a Project Debut Carbon, with a 2M Blue attached. Sounds good enough. However, just upgraded to a Rega amp, so my last unupgraded bit of kit is the turntable. Question is, will a Planar 3 be significant upgrade or just a sideways move/small bump...

    Awful sound from turntable

    Hello I've just plumbed in a turntable convertor to my Marantz AV receiver and the sound is awful. I've used quality brand new phono leads (2 sets) and through headphones direct from the turntable it sounds Ok. Everything else PS4/DVD sounds amazing. Any idea's?

    Turntable Unit

    Apologies for the daft question.... Got my TT on a unit, all feet level, and the surface of the unit is bigger than the TT. However, I'm looking to move it. The other unit is big enough to accommodate the 4 feet of the TT, but back and front, it would kind of over hang. Makes sense? The new...

    Turntable advice to match stereo

    Hello all, I'm looking for a turntable that I can use with my NAD350 amp and Celestion F30 speakers.
