My wife mentioned she wanted a turntable for Christmas. However, a bit more inquiry determined that she doesn’t want a turntable for our media rooms stereo, but rather something she can use to play records in her new home office.
Now, never mind that a mini-stereo or record player isn’t going to provide better audio than CDs. She just thinks it would be cool and nostalgic, and some artists she likes are releasing on vinyl.
So I’m thinking of making two purchases here:
- A small stereo or record player with turntable for her office.
- A nicer turntable for our mid-range stereo in our media room. (But not one of these $2,000 jobs – our stereo’s not THAT good, a $500 Onkyo receiver. :) USB would be nice so I can rip the records before they inevitably scratch or pop…
Anyone purchased anything along these lines recently?
