I am a long time musician (actually - a lifelong hack) that wants to explore the world of vinyl, particularly as I age out of the concert scene. I am starting from scratch (essentially), well I have a super old (perhaps 1995 - http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/onkyo/tx-sv525.shtml ) onkyo digital surround sound amp that appears to have a phono pre-amp built in, and some crappy yamaha bookshelf speakers. Essentially I would like to be able to: Start playing vinyl Eventually stream from a PC (no solution yet) Support a Tuner Support a CD player (maybe not) I guess once I get into a streaming solution, I would be better off moving all of my CDs to a PC anyhow (lossless?). As a musician I have always favored tube amplifiers and analogue synths. Ideally I would be able to grow into this system slowly, and thus be able to extend mu budget (it would be tough to come out of pocket for more than 2K on day one. That said I don't want want to under buy components that I will outgrow in a year. I am also not afraid of Vintage equipment, and may even prefer it in some circumstances. There is so much out there, I don't even know where to start. For example this looks like a nice entry point for a turntable: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_252DCESDGB/Pro-Ject-Debut-Carbon-Esprit-SB-DC-Gloss-Black.html?tp=200 Does anybody have any experience? Thx!
