I recently moved, and decided I needed to finally move forward with my audio system upgrade. I didn't even want to go through the trouble of setting up my old Sony surround sound system. I decided to keep my cheap turntable for the time being, but needed an amp and speakers. After some research I found I could just get some active speakers and connect them to my turntable directly. I went with the Audioengine A5+ speakers. I'm still in the process of breaking in these bad boys. They sound good. Next I will get an Audioengine S8 sub to go with the speakers, and a white Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. After that configuration is complete, I think I will be happy for a while.
You'll need to get a pre-amp for the Pro-ject Debut Carbon though, right? Because it doesn't have a built in pre-amp, and the A5+ speakers only include a power amp?
I am also getting a Pro-ject Debut Carbon turntable - should arrive next week. I'm running it through a simple Onkyo integrated amp and passive 2-channel Pioneer speakers, the floor-standing Andrew Jones ones.
Next up on my last is a AptX bluetooth DAC, and then some RF wireless headphones, and I'll be in like Flynt.
He's saying that he has such little faith in Huka Entertainment that he wouldn't be surprised if an advertised sneak peek (presumably of the lineup) actually came out after the lineup was widely released. Because so far they've got a terrible track record of actually following through on things.
Also, Pemberton lineup comes out Tuesday, so it would be interesting for them to do a sneak PEEK on Wednesday or Thursday, unless it's a sneak PEEK of something besides the lineup. Not sure what that means.
