    Long story short, i've got a bunch of old records that I'd like to listen to. And no record player. I'm frugal so would like to scour craiglist and FB for stuff, but willing to buy some stuff new if it makes more sense. Would also like capability to play stuff via bluetooth from my phone...

    Greetings forum! First post here! I recently purchased this Klipsch reference speaker package at a local shop for an extremely marked down price. I am currently running my AudioTechnica AT-LPW40WN turntable though a pair of R-15PM speakers and much enjoy the sound, but it's time for a louder...

    I am looking to upgrade my vinyl stereo sound either using my current 5.1 surround set-up, or abandoning it all together. Right now, I have a Denon AVR with Polk 5.1 Signature Series bookshelves. It's great for movies, but I feel like my vinyl could sound more transparent, analog and warmer...

    Want to add a turntable to my setup and start building a record collection. The only experience I have with turntables is my parents Realistic turntable and collection of vinyl from 20+ years ago, all of which has been lost in the decades. So it's safe to say that I know nothing. Setup I am...

    It's been three decades since Yamaha released a new turntable but that's exactly what the company did at CEDIA 2018. Reason enough to start dancing! No joke, when the needle dropped on Thriller, that's what happened with the new TT-N503 MusicCast turntable from Yamaha. Proof of the power of...

Meanwhile, streaming content is growing by leaps and bounds. But one physical format seems immune to this trend: vinyl...

    Given the idiosyncrasies associated with the medium, the resurgence of vinyl records has had surprising staying power. While it’s easy to debate whether the format’s analog nature makes up for its inherent limitations, there’s no question that with a good record player connected to a capable...

    I've got a used Onkyo CP-1050 in excellent condition. The dust cover is immaculate, and the Audio-Technica cartridge and stylus that came with it have very little mileage. Looking for $550 or best offer. If you'd like to learn more about this wonderful TT, check out CNet's glowing review.

    In one of the more unusual twists of fate, Best Buy will stop selling compact discs at its stores beginning July 1, 2018. The company made the announcement last week and the result has been a lot of chatter about what this move means. But perhaps the most amusing part of the decision is that...

    I need advice on components for a vinyl setup. I am repurposing a room in my basement to a listening room - I just recovered a vintage vinyl collection from the sixties-eighties that I thought my mom threw out/donated years ago. I have a home theater already so think of this as a room only...

    I've had my music hall MMF2.2 for a while now and I love it. Upgraded to an acrylic platter. I recently acquired a mitsubishi dp 6 and all it needs is a new cart. I was already researching new carts to replace my mmf2.2's current Music Hall Magic 2 and bought a Goldring 1006. I originally was...

    Hi there, recently I got my hands on a B&O Beogram 1700 turntable in quite good condition. I've hooked it up with my Denon AVR-1912 (an amplifier I very satisfied with). When I play vinyls, however, there seems to be a problem with the lower and middle frequencies. Also, I have to turn up...

    Q: What do I need to digitize vinyl LPs? I don't have a large collection—100 albums or so. Some are junk, but some are audiophile recordings from the 1980s, so I want good quality at a reasonable cost. My system includes a Sony PS-X40 turntable with a Micro Seiki LF-7 cartridge, Carver C-1...
