I know there are a couple threads that are either in the Vinyl section or the Turntables & Other Audio Equipment section that are basically this but I think one needs to be created and pinned or moved and pinned in the Turntable section. About half of the questions people ask there (like "What do you recommend?" type stuff) could be answered by looking in a thread like this but the setup threads keep drifting past the first page and people would rather create a new thread than find it. Plus I like (and I'm assuming other people do to) looking at people's setups, but I don't like having to find and look through three different threads to do that.
And this thread obviously belongs in the Turntables & Other Audio Equipment section.
