Speaking of.... speakers. On a related topic of vinyl club... what are some of your choices and recommendation for speakers to support a record player??

Just got in the mail my new player, AT-LP-1240-USB.

Wanting to see what you think will crank out some great noise to combine with my record player.

I got these last year for $500 for the pair. I use them with my Realistic sta-2080 80 watt, paired with a Pioneer fully auto 1980 turntable.
They are very good for the price.

Polk sti 500, BTW. They came with standard black screen covers, but I like them off.

I have the same, but black instead of walnut. Could use more bass, but that's why GOD invented subwoofers.

#6157 13 days ago

Yep, definite lack of thump, but super nice quality for a pair at $500, and free Amazon shipping. They got here a 10 PM. In under 22 hours.

That's a loaded question that's going to get a different response from anyone you ask. Budget? Music style? Buying new/used? What reciever is driving them?

My advice is to head to an audio equipment store with some music samples and start test driving speakers.

Yes, good point. I hope you can tell i'm not an audio guy. Passionate about listening to music, but lack the knowledge of components that drive the sound.

At the moment I have Yamaha R-N303BL running some simple Knox LP1 Powered Bookshelf Speaker.

When I started I bought a decent receiver with a basic turntable/speaker combo.

So, my budget would be around $600-$700. However, depending on suggestions I could sit and save a little more. I also understand depending on the speaker choice my receiver may need to be replaced.

My taste of music is little of EVERYTHING. The desire would be how to buy a setup that can satisfy all genres well enough?

That is true and agree 100%. You need to hear the hardware running the music to determine which is best for you.

However, being that I live in the california desert with a population around 26K... Sadly, we do not have an audio equipment store (unless you call Walmart one.. haha). The nearest place is over 1 1/2 hour drive.

They budget will get you some very decent speakers, pretty high end speakers in the used market. I would also read up on the speakers forum on audio karma.

#6165 13 days ago

audiokarma and stevehoffman forums are good resources for gear reviews / suggestions.

What kind of room are you trying to fill and what are you looking to get out of playback that your current setup is lacking/weak with?

Buying vintage speakers is a crapshoot.

But I love vintage equipment, I've bought several pairs over the years.

The best sounding are my Sansui SP-7500X

>>The best sounding are my Sansui SP-7500X

I have a Quad set of SP-x 7700s here that I bought from the original owner with all the docs and receipts. They are very nice sounding speakers.

I also have some nice Ohms and a set of Advents in a guest room that sound great with Vintage Receivers.

My dad had a set of old Realistic speakers about that size - and they rocked the house!

Wish I could find another like that some day. But I probably shouldn't, I have too much stuff already!

I had my parents' Advents refoamed and they sound amazing. Great rock speakers.

That is the issue.... those foams and rubbers dry out and the speaker just looses that movement.

Man, this thread is killing me. I have what I consider to be a decent home theater setup I listen to vinyl on. Decent in the I shop at Best Buy price range. Ha! I think it sounds great..... but what if it could sound better?! I've been wanting a Technics 1200 for a long time. There were 2 in my family's bar I could have had for next to nothing in the 90's. Unfortunately the bar went tits up and with it went my chances of buying the turntables and most of my record collection that I was storing there. Most were $1 flea market albums but there are a handful of sentimental albums I'd kill to get back. I've been scouring Facebook for a used 1200 but I'm wondering if my turntable isn't the weakest link in the system. Klipsch reference speakers, Audio Technica LP-120 with the preamp removed and an Ortofon Red cartridge, DIY Bugle preamp, Yamaha TSR-7810 receiver. It gets used a lot more for movies than it does vinyl, it needs to be dual purpose. Would the 1200 be a significant upgrade or would you look elsewhere? Yes, I need to dust my setup and put away some albums, and yes I used a shim to level my TV because it's probably too big for that stand. I'll fix it someday.

Boston acoustics from the mid to late 80's.
Model A 150, I posted about these before, wonderful speakers, amazing clarity. It sounds if the band is in the room.

I would say that I would switch out the AT TT, but more importantly, get some spare headshells and some extra cartridges, a stylus force gauge, and an azimuth guide.

I'd opine that the baseline of cartridges you want to start to try would start at the $150-$200 range. The AT VM 540, Nagaoka MP-150, Grado (forgot the model name), Sumiko Ranier would be on my list if looking for an upgrade.

I've grabbed a few of the gauges and azimuth guides here to help.

Definitely not on vinyl(sorry) suspect208, sounds just like his father. What do you guys think? There fathers have laid some serious ground work to follow but from there first two singles I believe there headed in the right direction.

Never did follow through on the speakers. I hope Covid doesn’t drive the last stake into gear shops and record stores. The last record shores in Chicago seem to be in high rent areas.

Not ours. Back Door Records. Right down town across from the big pawn shop!

Vinyl = all analog (IMO)

Any other equipment you regret selling? I regret selling both of these.

Fu Manchu, Godzilla's/Eating Dust
New 2lp Deluxe repress swirl color vinyl.
45 rpm.

Originally two separate 10 inch ep's, releases in the mid 90's.
The Fu combined them with new songs to a full length album in 1999.
This edition contains bonus demos, some songs used on the next 1997 album, The Action Is Go.

Crushing fuzzy groovy riffage. The song Eating Dust has simply one of the greatest opening riffs of all time. The lyrics of Orbiter are genius idiocy of drag racing UFO's.

Best way to describe the Fu, is Sabbath meets the Beach Boys. Heavy fuzzy riffs, and goofy lyrics about muscle cars, skating, UFO's, sleestacks, surfing, and custom vans.
