Hello, my knowledge on audio systems is minimal and i would appretiate any help(my main questions have been underlined). I have recently decided to purchase a new sound system to play just vinyl. Im not a DJ or anything, so a domestic turntable would be more suited. I will be willing to spend £250-£300 on new or 2nd hand seperate based system, not a substantial amount. For starters, I was looking at ACOUSTIC ENERGY AEGO 2 , which is a sub woofer with a built in amp and satellite speakers; very cheap and some great reviews in the press. *I think* the built in amp has no connections for a turntable though. So would a decent preamp be important to maintain sound quality?, any recommendations? Is this system package a good choice to use with a turntable? Or could i find better deals elsewhere? (ebay?) The trouble is i dont know any respectable audio makes for speakers, turntables and amplifiers. I was also thinking about getting a sub also, but this could break my price range. As for turntables, i had my eye on THE GOLDRING GR1 TURNTABLE. Is it worth the money in terms of performance if i can find a older model of the same make of turntable for half the price on ebay? : http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1442&item=5716976524&rd=1 Any help would be very much appreciated indeed. Regards.
