  1. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum! I'm looking for an uprgade to my Dual CS 415-2. I bought this turntable three years ago, when i started collecting vinyl records. To be honest it's a nice turntable,it does the job, but i can't stand having records that are 70€ played on turntable, which I bought for 50€ or about 60$. I have a rather nice amplifier, Hitachi HA-4500. I'm looking for better a audio quality and overall better alternative to the one I have. My budget is about 300€ or 360$. I made a bit of research and came to the conclusion, that there are two turntables that are in my price point and are worth it. Firstly, Audio-Technica AT-LP5, not Audio-Technica AT-LP5X. I found one,second hand in great condition, in my country for around 280€ or 330$. I saw few reviews and it turns out to be a great overall turntable, for pure listening. Secondly, Pro-Ject Primary E, belt driven, with a great reaviews. I would love to hear more record player suggestions, either second hand or new. Maybe thorens or Technics. I just want to have the best sound quality at this price, I'm sure i won't be able to find good sounding Technics SL 1200 at this price, but I'm looking forward to your suggestions and ideas. Thank you in advance, Ivan.
  2. I didn't see this anywhere and am curious as to what people think. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/865809794/wheel-by-miniot It seems pretty intriguing, but too rich for my blood.
  3. I picked up a Pioneer PL 12D II the other day at a thrift store for $15 it needs some work but i think its worth it, it has a Empire 2000 E/III cartridge in it... I dont have a pre amp yet, because the previous record players i had are already equipped with a preamp inside it, so whats a good and stable but cheap preamp? Im 16 so i dont have aton of money to buy something crazy, i saw a pyle one for $13 on amazon but i heard that model isnt very stable and breaks within a month, aswell as a poor warrenty policy. what do you guys think? anyone here upgrading their preamps soon? or have one from a previous upgrade their willing to cut me a deal on? And if anyone has a belt for the player, stylus, or a tracking gauge i would be interested in those. One more thing, i know you need a preamp to make it loud But can i plug it straight into my reciever just to test it? before i go ahead and spend however much on a preamp?
  4. It looks like they share the same manual and im being offered one for cheap. Just want to make sure i can use the needle from the KD-291R since i cant find one for the RC. Whats the difference anyways? And does it have a preamp built in?
  5. Hey guys, As the title says, I'm selling a Stanton T.60 Turntable. If you'd like to make me a direct offer before any bids are placed, I can always cancel the auction and sell through here/PayPal. Once someone bids, however, it will have to be through eBay. Thanks for taking a look.
  6. Hi, I've sold my vinyl collection, so there is no point in keeping this... For sale: Stanton T.62 record player, W/Artcessories DJ pre II phono pre-amp! Please PM me for more pictures. I would prefer a direct through PayPal payment, but you can see the pictures I have now through my eBay links. Very well taken care of. This is a fantastic priced item, everything works perfectly! It includes it's dust cover. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171680587054?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2648 I also have an LPBin LP storage Cabinet *Modern Black* GREAT CONDITION, with included set of Groove Mats (which aren't cheap)!!! However, that is a fully built, 102 lbs item that I don't want to mess with, so unfortunately it is only available for pick up, I'm located in Miami, FL. Get in touch if interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/171680584977?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  7. So I went to the flea market recently and for 10 bucks I could not pass up this ugly/pretty pink Symphonic Model 1159. The guy said it turned, and that was enough for me. So I ran inside to hit up the atm and came back and paid the guy. Took it home, plugged it in, and much to the dismay of my ears, horrible scraping sounds and just general noise, the thing turned. One needle seems to be intact (there's another that flips over?) and the other is trash. I stuck one of my 33's on it that came with it.......drumroll...... no music. I have no idea what I'm doing, I'm 16 and I've never owned one of these before. I mean my uncle has a solid 1000 records and an extremely nice player, but I don't have to figure anything out, just put on some Allman Brothers or Canned Heat, maybe Doobie Brothers, and drop the needle. But classic rock and records have always been something I've wanted to have. I collect Intellivision stuff primarily, but these might overtake that pursuit. If anyone can assist me at all, either to help me get it going, or just to maybe advise me otherwise, I just want to play my records. I won an ebay auction of 36 records so I'll have plenty to play. If I were to buy another turntable (or put money into this one), I don't want to put a whole lot into anything, maybe 50 bucks at most, though even that's pushing it. I'm not looking for audiophile quality obviously, I just want to hear some Traffic and Best of ZZTop. So what is a common problem? Is it like wiring, the tubes on the speakers? What? Any ideas off the bat? I've tried to look this particular model up and I haven't found anything. All I know is it's a symphonic model 1159 and it plays 16's, 33's, 45's and 78's. Not age, function, or origins of manufacture. Oh, and the arm doesn't want to move in all the way. It barely reaches the platter and doesn't go farther. I unscrewed part of the thing and pulled it up to see all of the wires and stuff going on and I took some pictures, though I am trying to figure out if I can put them up without using photobucket. If that's the only way I'll post them in a little bit. Thanks ahead of time Dominic
  8. Hello I have no idea where to post this, so for that, I apologise. I just got given a sharp hifi midi system SG-FS30E, it was my girlfriend's mum's old record player from the 80s and she doesn't use it, now it's mine. Could anybody tell me anything about it? Is it any good? What cartridge does it come with? Will it scratch my records? I've googled and nothing comes up, just thought I'd ask here, surely someone must have seen one! Cheers.
  9. Does anyone know where I can purchase replacement needles for this record player?? Much appreciated, Lachie
  10. I've got myself a DJ Technics SL 1200 (thanks to my mother's old hobbies), and I have it hooked up to my tiny kit guitar amp so far. I mean it sounds fine and I'll get some nice speakers from Goodwill soon probably, but I was looking at portable record players and of the reviews, all the trendy kids seem to like the sound and everything on the Crosley's (thanks Urban Outfitters), but I notice some older folk say the sound is shit. And I've been looking at some on EBay, like the Fisher-Price ones, and other older portable record players, even the battery operated ones (think Moonrise Kingdom). How's the sound on portable record players? Is there really any point if I own $500 turntables other than for ease of use and novelty?
  11. So, I've had my record player for about a year now. It's an ION Profile Pro. Lately, when I've been playing my records, they sound fine in the beginning, but when it gets to about the last two songs, the sound starts to get really scratchy and you can't understand it very well. Any ideas?
  12. I'm trying to find out why people spend the extra bang, the extra buck to grab Pro-Ject Turntables? Is it purely aesthetic? What is your opinion? Thanks! http://www.project-audio.com/main.php?list=rpmline&cat=turntables〈=en
  13. So here's the bottom line, I'm moving and I decided I wanted to completely get a whole new setup. My price for everything all together is probably going to be roughly $400 - $500. I'm not looking for completely high end stuff, but I am looking for decent stuff that's good. Nothing dirt cheap (though I hear good things about preamps). I'm just looking for some guidance for everything. I need a turntable, preamp, and speakers. Hit me with what you recommend. Thank you in advance!
