I have managed to get a phono pre-amp for free, my dad has a few spare so thats good.
Budget for speakers/amp would be anything up to £300/£350 I guess at the minute, but as suggestions I would like a spectrum of prices from cheap to the higher end if possible.
Size of the room is 8M x 12M.
And the turntable is on a desk, meaning the speakers will have to fit alongside it.
From the suggestions you have given, and from what i've looked at I am more inclined to go with an Active Speaker set up, as i'm getting the pre-amp for free.
Any other suggestions for Active Speakers?
