    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    Don't you need a dedicated 20 amp circuit for that?

    If so then get the 20 amp cord. It does look pretty powerful.

    Hmm... well, the Kef Q150s are on sale until Jan. 31st, add a Marantz PM5005, U-Turn Orbit, and Marantz CD5005, assorted cables and you are good to go. :)

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Hey, I know better now, but in 2007 someone gave me one of those as my first record player. My first album purchased was Neil Young EKTINW. I was hooked.

    11 years, 3 turntables, 600 albums, and accessories that cost more than that stupid Crosley....I’m still hooked.

    Sooo...it makes me cringe to think of playing a record on it, but I do have a soft spot in my heart a little bit for them. :)

    A few days ago, there was a Craigslist ad near me that would fit the bill... I'll try to find it.

    This should do it!!

    Jeeez man, we never get deals like that around here. Around here, that stuff would be missing feet, have pencils sticking out of the drivers, and a snapped off tonearm (that one's for you Don). AND would be listed as very good condition for $2k.
    I disabled signatures.

    A Marantz PM7005 would be a good start no?

    Any ideas on if vinyl or digital is the preferred format. With $1500 you have options, but based on their needs it make more sense to focus on one as the primary.

    On the vinyl front if they are looking at new, UTurn is still my top pick under $300. The new Fluance RT85 looks very interesting at $500.

    RT85 + MoFi Studiophono should be a pretty compelling analog front end for $800, but now we're over half the budget. Might be too much if they have 10 records and 200 CDs.
    Analog: MoFi MasterTracker > MoFi UltraDeck > Sutherland 20/20
    Digital: Sony CDP-CE375 / Streaming > Cambridge CXN v2
    MastersounD Dueventi > JBL Studio 580 or Arcam rHead > Hifiman HE4XX

    $1500 can get some pretty decent sound if you shop carefully
