Didn't see this thread before so will def be watching it.
From a turntable perspective you can't go wrong with the AT LP120 at that price point, this is currently what I run. If you want to customize the
sound a bit there are multiple videos or sites that go over how to remove the built in preamp. Granted you are talking scratching and not just a
listening experience so that could impact your choice.
Im about to drop a good amount on a vintage (circa 60s) McIntosh Tube setup or the newish MA252 for my analog setup .
Could get something cheaper or whatever but for me its not only an investment, McIntosh build quality, but also the aesthetics and hell since I got
into audio 25 years ago it's been a dream of mine to own a piece of M gear.
Current setup is a good quality budget config of an Onkyo A-9010 for integrated amp, Onkyo C-7030 for CD, Definitive Tech D7 with music streaming via
thunderbolt to audio out.
Previous setup was a Marantz mono block 5 channel system with B&W DM607s. this was a great though very bright sounding system but I had to sell it for
a few reasons.
