    :embar: I'm rather embarrassed to post this but right now I have a very old Technics SLPD888 CD player, SAEX110 Receiver, and a RSTR373 dual tape deck with 2 Bose 301 series 4 Direct / Reflecting Speakers in a 700 sq ft. apartment.

    I'd really like to upgrade to the 21st century and be able to play pandora, apple music, spotify, internet, etc. stations, and need to get a record player and play CD's / MP3s. Any suggestions of what to upgrade to?

    I'm loathe to sell what I have as it's in perfect condition and the resale value is horrendous but I feel like I really need to upgrade.

    For digital music you could get a Bluesound Node 2, Sonos Connect, or old Logitech Squeezebox if you can find one. Hook that into your receiver and control from your phone or tablet. What kind of budget are you looking at re: the rest of the components? The sky is the limit really. Spend some time on Audiogon.

    Lol, I've never even heard of this stuff. I'll have to check it out (and the website).

    I'm not really sure of the budget although I really don't think I need much ewuipment, do I? I really just want internet / pandora, etc. radio, ability to play CD's and a record player. The speakers I can live with for now.
