Amplification I am currently using an older Marantz 2270. Turntable is WTL Amadeus Mk1, Dynavector 20x2 with AVA Vision Q phono preamp, running into GR-Research XLS Encore speakers. I plan on adding a pre amp and at some point upgrading my amplification. For right now, sounds pretty darn good with vinyl.
i i'd suggest to do something simple and practical. no matter how much you spend it is still going to not be vinyl. A modest digital system will amazing. you'll listen and be wowed. Clicking though songs, no getting up...all those benefits, clean, bright, detailed.... for me, after a couple hours the magic wears off and i'm back to flipping records.
I was reading this thread hoping to find out if anyone mentioned newer players other than Foobar, jriver, or whatever.. but I don't see it.. Looks like the trend is to find an acceptable sounding 'easy button'.
First, the comment "no matter how much you spend it is still going to not be vinyl" Well now, am I thankful for that? Perhaps this poster has never heard good digital. I have and it is not cheap.
Perhaps There is a Polish company called Lampizator. They have a page on here and other forums, lots of people consider if good, or at least it was 5 years ago. I'm just sharing my experience-- maybe not as expansive as yours.
My suggestion is just to get an ordinary computer or laptop - maybe you already have an extra one you can use, buy a Topping E30. It's super easy, inexpensive and will sound reasonably nice just to get going. If it's too much of a bother, then you won't have wasted too much time and money. If you like its potential, then you can improve it step by step at your leisure.
OP, I am in the same position as you looking for a means of playing digital.Consider too that 3000 albums is gonna take up a whole lot of space, whereas the same number of albums in digital format will take up 2 hard-drives. I do enjoy analogue playback but feel that extracting music from those tiny grooves has evolved about as far as it can. Digital is still advancing.I encourage you to read as much as you can on this digital thing by visiting other forums too. You will soon come across posters claiming that their turntable has not been used for months and is now for sale.
I do have some old desktops, without getting too off topic, what player is recommended to get my feet wet?
Yes, currently looking at used tube dacs. Not Lampy 's tho, not quite ready to take that financial plunge just yet.
