    Tube pre-amps for Turntables

    I bought a Fosi Audio tube pre-amp about a week ago. Very impressed with it. However, as I have until the end of Jan to return it (I bought it off Amazon). Just intrigued if the Pro-Ject Box S2 would take the sound to another level? Any thoughts?

    Do different turntables have more surface noise? Crackle, pop etc..

    Question What are the best value Bluetooth turntables?

    My sister is looking for a Bluetooth turntable for her bf for Xmas: she doesn't want to spend too much, but I don't want her buying the hifi equivalent of a Christmas cracker toy. I was thinking the AT LP60BT, at £180, but are there any less expensive ones that'd be worth checking out?

    Considering three turntables

    I'm mainly into a new turntable for vinyl playback. I have read about looking for used vintage, but to be blunt I don't know what I'm doing. This will be my first turntable in a decade or two, much less a decent turntable (upgrading from a cheap sony toy I had in 1997). So my three contenders...
