“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

For a setup if you plan on spinning, Direct-Drive tables are a MUST. Belt drive is junk for anything but listening. There are some more reasonable priced direct drive tables out there that will work for all until you're on Tiesto or Digweeds level.

You'll want neoprene slipmats and a decent mixer. Keep in fade the crossfaders will wear out, some of the cheaper ones don't have replaceable fader, the moderate/higher end ones almost always do. Dunno about inputs without looking at mine.

If you're just listening, I have an extra belt-drive table you can have for efree. IIRC it's missing a cartridge you could get a cheap one on ebay, it would only be good for straight listening to though.

Wow, thanks for that info! Good to know on a lot of stuff, although I was just planning on getting a table for listening purposes only, and then outputting the signal into a receiver and out to some small speakers (don't need a huge setup.)

I was looking at this: Crosley Radio Any thoughts on something like that?

Thta looks good, I've noticed how the newer tables all have the USB outputs. If you want one just for listening, you can have one of mine. Its a cheapy gemini XL-100, but good for listening. No USB capabilities like the on you posted though.

I don't think so. I have seen most self powered speakers which take XLR not RCA. Better to have a mixer that has XLR outputs or if the mixer has RCA outs then you will need to connect to a mixing board that has XLR outputs. I have tried using standard RCA to 1/4" to XLR adaptors and that sucks

I'm not super concerned with all the analog ---> digital capabilities, just a nice looking, relatively simple table that can play all formats of vinyl. Also, at least that one wouldn't look terribly out of place with the rest of the stuff I plan on picking up. But if yours is up for grabs I'll take you up on the offer till I can piece the rest of everything together.

Good to know as well. I was planning on building up a simple all around system I think, and I found a Onkyo receiver on sale I might get, and just run the line outs from the turntable into the receiver, and have that send out the signal to my speakers. I dont know much at all about turntables though, so this was just a start.

Thanks for the help!

my technic sl1200 mk2s have RCA outputs and a ground cable. when i dont connect the ground cable to the ground post on my mixer they sound like shit. im not sure if the turntable you are considering has this or not. basically what i am trying to say is everything is better when you have a mixer. otherwise you are relying on the internals of the onkyo to feed the signal from the turntables out to the speakers
