Haha you flatter me greatly, I’m still learning but I do know a lot and I’m very glad to help! I know what you mean by record player stuff being complex, I was completely lost at first too when I decided that I wanted to upgrade to a serious turntable after my initial cheap starter. It all depends upon your desired price range and we can talk about that more if you want. My Audio Technica LP120 ran at about $215 when I acquired it a year ago(and still currently runs at about $199 on Amazon), and while it does require a set of speakers(fortunately I had a pair of decent Bose handy) it’s not too difficult of a setup. I do recommend that model because I know it very well, it’s not at all hard to operate and the existing equipment on it has served me very faithfully(I haven’t needed to upgrade or replace a thing on it and it still sounds great to my ears). But again it depends on what you want to spend and whether you want to concern yourself with getting speakers if you don’t have some already in some way shape or form. Sound quality can be lost when they’re built in, but it’s not the end of the world and it does cut costs.
But by all means message me with more info on what your general parameters are(pricing, built in or external speakers), and I’d be happy to get you some more information and do some research. Anything to help ease your mind a bit and have you listening to some cool records in no time! :)
Anyone who’s a fan of the Fleet Foxes should go check out this link. I’m not sure what the exact story of this song is, but from all appearances it’s a new song he’s put out there solo?
It’s beautiful of course, and it comes as no surprise given how these songs he puts out from time to time are of the greatest quality. Very cool.
