Hello, I am a new member and have a question to put out.
I have a $3000 budget to put together a system for vinyl (amp, turntable and speakers). I do have a relative that can get me Polk, Jbl, and Marantz at dealer prices so it would be nice if those are options. I know Marantz has great components ,but not sure of the quality of Jbl and Polk speakers these days. I live in a condo so I will not be blasting music soon but want to be able to in the future when I have a house.
Question: What are your opinions on how much to spend on each part of the system?
I would like floor standing speakers.
Marantz has the Pm 8004 integrated amp with a phono stage- 100watts at 4 oms. $999 without discount. Would that be enough power for good speakers?
or Marantz MM7025 power amp coupled with Pm 5004 as a pre amp for more power?
Polk Lsi or Jbl Studio speakers seem to be the better options for these companies.
Project debut 3 or Project Expression turntables...thoughts. I understand the cartridge is only decent for the Expression.
I listen to every kind of music so no preference there.
Hope this is enough info and appreciate any help you guys can give me.
