    Hello

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a place selling new vinyl players, I have a growing collection and my parents player is getting knackered, so I thought i'd get a new one. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanksssssssss James

    To be embarrasingly honest, up to £100 really, i've had to buy loads of gear recently and i'm runnin on empty. I'd probably just use any speakers, like off my CD player or something, which could well be a disaster i'm not sure!

    As you can probably tell, i'm at the lower end of AV experience. hah.

    You will need an AMP with a phono stage or a Turntable with one built in suggest you up budget to £300 and go for Project Debut http://ws4.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=PROJ-DEBUT3-BLK
    An AMP http://ws4.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=MARA-PM4400-BLK
    and some speakers
    http://ws4.richersounds.com/productlist.php?cda=productlist&sgroup=STAND-MOUNT&sort=price
    get them to throw in speaker cable and a set of analogue interconnects and you will smile all the way home then later add a CD player like this

    It isn't to be messed with certainly- I believe it weighs a quarter of a ton.
