Sick! This is one lucky guy to be getting this gift to go with records. Lucky Gal too, to have the scratch to drop.
Wow you mean she bought without listening first, hope she likes it. I never buy anything before I have listened first and most of the time I take it home and try it in my room with the rest of my setup. Expensive mistake if you don’t like it.
I think is their first step into hifi. I think it's ok to dive in (if you have the cash) and go from there. I honestly think I could suggest anything mentioned here, and it would have been mind blowing for them. That's how hifi was for me the first time I heard something outside the Bose world.
All components have been reviewed rather favorably, none more than the Thorens.
UPDATE again - i've convinced her to go with the restored Thorens. She wants the iFi retro setup too now.I think i'm just gonna get her to commit to this.
friend wants to surprise her husband with a new 2 channel turntable setup. US based couple in LAhe's not a huge hifi person, but appreciates good taste and just came into a large vinyl collection. i suggested we pick the TT first, and we've started with an LP 12 but I'm open to other suggestions.they want something with a classic but not gaudy look. they're not a fan of the whole open-tube situation either. so i think SS etc makes more sense. she's also thinking BOOKSHELF over floor standers. $6K is the total budget for this so:TTAmps / PhonoSpeakersConnectsAny help would be greatly appreciated!UPDATE:after consideration - she wants an all-black style setup but with a traditional style base - Regar Planar 6 etc... the stereo setup is going on a banquette which is right up against the wall... and it's about 2 feet deep, 3 feet high and about 10ft wide.
