Turntable upgrade advice
« on: April 18, 2018, 08:01:00 PM »
Looking to upgrade my deck. My budget is around 500. Currently using the AT.LP120. Looking at the AT.LP5.

Thanks.

How has your AT-LP120 treated you? I’m thinking of upgrading from my AT-LP60 and found a seller on CL for $150.

For $500 u-turn is great choice with room to spare, or Entry level Rega or Project or Music Hall all fall under $500

Musicdirect has sales often and great support help

It’s a great entry level deck. Just ready to move on. It has a lot DJ stuff on it. Looking for a sleeker looking table. If your interested PM me. I still have original box. Makes it easier to ship.

If you don't mind the screen printing.... Best Buy has the Project Debut Carbon Esprit SB for $450

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/pro-ject-debut-carbon-esprit-sb-turntable-beatles-1964-edition-white-and-black/5655630.p?skuId=5655630

It's a $599 table without the graphics.  I picked one up and love it.  Since my table is up in the air it just looks like a white table from the sides.

And I dig the Beatles so the graphics on the top to not bother me one whit.

Debut Carbon with the acrylic platter and built in speed box.  Good stuff.
Yes, but what do you HEAR?

I have one of these (except with the blue cartridge and just black)...love it.

Upgraded from a Project RPM 1.3 and it was a noticeable upgrade.
