I know nothing about stereos but want to play some actual records in my apartment rather than just ipod stuff (so nothing loud but want something that sounds and looks ok). Anyone willing to throw out some advice? I'd really like a to get a braun sk5 but seems like those are tough to find in the us?
So could someone recommend a decent small set up that wouldn't require too much brain damage? Or maybe I'll throw a straw man out and tell me why it doesn't work and what I'm missing (I literally might not even have the right components listed)?
turntable (maybe that technics sl 1500 that someone's selling on here or something)
This looks like it should work fine, but the output from the miniwatt is only 3.5 watts per channel. I'm not sure that this amp will be able to push those speakers very well. You may want to consider getting a simple phono stage and separate analong amplifier to drive those speakers or alternatively, find a more powerful integrated tube amp.
