That is not what Elizabeth is saying, she is saying if / when it packs up down the road it can and often cost a fortune to fix and sometimes you can’t get it fixed hence you end up with a very expensive doorstop.
twitch54 you can do it for far less than that.I do kind of agree with you about starting from scratch today, why would you bother but saying that it’s far easier with record players than a tape deck or a Reel to reel player. At least with records, you can still get new records / record players. With tape decks and reel to reel, good luck.
mix4fix not if you get it correct in the first place, I don’t change my kit often as I do my homework.
There are tons of vinyl options. Plenty of turntables available. Everybody has vinyl (even Target had a little bit of vinyl. Best Buy. Hot Topic. Urban Outfitters. Plenty of vinyl vendors at Capitol Audio Fest. Online vendors. etc.).On a side note, how much is a new, used, or vintage real-to-real? The ones at United Home Audio are crazy expensive. Tapes are like $300 a piece.

I didn't say everybody. Many people do though. I will upgrade up because I can't afford all higher-end in one shot. It just takes me longer than the average person.Correct is subjective. To one person, the million dollar VAC room at Capitol Audio Fest is the greatest thing in the world. To others, some of the other rooms (Salk for example) is our cup of tea.
really ?? show me, obviously you and I can't ... LOL !
Okay using UK prices Rega P6 £1049Rega Fono MC £249Spin Clean £90I make that £1388
LOL, you said ......"a lot less" ! and besides you didn't include a phono-pre !regardless, I fully understand opinions differ but I've never heard a analog set up done on the 'cheap' that I would consider remotely challenging to digital.
Yes I could do it a lot less, but i still want something that is going to sound reasonable. By the way the Rega Fono MC is a phonostage.
Ok, but what about a cartridge ?
If you bothered to look up the Rega P6, you would know it comes with Ania MC cartridge.
Well for a budget system- maybe a VPI Prime $4000, a VPI phono preamp at $500, Cartridge around $1000 and all the coolest VPI accessories $1,300
I guess people have different ideas of 'Budget'... My idea of 'budget' would be an Orbit TT at $459 for the tricked-out version with the acrylic platter and bamboo plinth, $299 for a VanAlstine modded Grado, and $500 for a VanAlstine phono pre. Total cost ~$1300.
