Looking For Recommendation/Advice - Complete Setup $1300 Budget


Recommended Posts

As the title states ... looking to finally upgrade from our AT-LP60 . 

Right now we are looking at pretty much going "all-in" from U-Turn site  with record player, preamp, speakers, and some accessories and that brings the total to around $1300. 
Does anyone have other suggestions in this price range? 
Also while we're at it can someone explain to me the pros and cons of built-in vs external pre-amp? 

Thanks!

If it were me I'd do:

Marantz PM5005 Integrated Amplifier ($500)

Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB Turntable ($600)

Wharfedale - Diamond 10.2 Bookshelf Speakers ($300)

 

With some online coupon codes with TTL or other sites you should be able to get that down from $1400 to $1300

I have pretty much this, except with a NADC326BEE receiver ($400ish new) and a Hagerman Bugle2 preamp. A very solid setup, durable and reliable. My next move, maybe when my kids are older, will likely be 3-4 times in price, because it will start to take a lot more money for bigger sound improvements.

Hey - we ended up getting the Marantz and Wharfedale speakers with a fully upgraded U Turn. Just got it all set up last night and it's sounding great. Thanks for the recommendations!
