I've been into HiFi for many years but have not ever quite made the jump into vinyl. I have a CD setup that I'm very happy with, and I'm looking for a turntable that will pair well with my amp/speakers. My current system is: Quad 405 mk 2 w/ Quad 34 KEF 104 a/b (currently fed by Arcam rDac/DVD setup) I'm happy with this as a setup and am looking to pair a turntable with this that will provide a similar level of performance. Having taken advice from a friend who has a lot of experience with HiFi vinyl, he suggested a Linn LP12, however time spent on eBay suggests I won't get one for what would be in my budget, I'd prefer not to get much above the £2-300 mark. Reading the posts on here, the Rega Planar3 sounds like it might be about right, but as it is significantly cheaper than the LP12, I don't know how well it will pair with my system. Any thoughts would be much appreciated! New or second hand turntable alternative suggestions welcome.
