Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

Opinions seem to be all over the place!

Personally, I would head down to Magnolia HiFi and ask to audition a Pro-ject turntable in my price range and see what that yields.

Failing that, I would try to get a Rega P2 used that is not too old, maybe from a dealer tradein and then spend the least possible on a phono preamp and see how things go from there.

The only problem I have with Pro-ject turntables, is that they don't come with a lid AFAIK and I think that would be essential.

The only other turntable I would consider at that price range would be a used Technics SL-1200 because you guys have mentioned it so many times, but I've never heard one.

I do like the all-in-one that somebody mentioned for a newbie. I like that very much, because someone did ask me about how to get into vinyl, but I didn't pay much attention to that because unless someone has a lot of money OR a lot of cheaply acquired vinyl, what is the purpose? To be COOL, well, maybe.
