First of all I am new here. If this has been answered over and over again, then please just point me in the right direction, and I will refine my searching skills.
I am going to be building a new system from scratch, for a room in my house that has become available to me for use as an office and listening room. Roughly its about 4x5m with a fire place at one end and a bay window at the other. The fire won’t be used and the speakers will sit either side of it.
My Primary source is VINYL, 99.99% of what I will be listening to on this system. I may stream occasionally just to hear some new stuff, but I’m not bothered about that…
I have some options, but I am seriously considering the following
- Stellar Pre Amp
- New Stellar Phono Stage
That dream of a shopping basket is about 33% of my budget.
On top of that I need
- Turntable (with bits and pieces)
- Chair x 2 (Seriously )
- Any sound treatments for the room (which might just be a rug or two hung along the walls), ie diffuser’s
- Power Treatment unit?
One thing I don’t have is the luxury of time to audition different speakers and turntables.
So my question for anyone who has a similar size room and components (I know the Stellar photostage is new, but I’m assuming you will be using something similar ). What speakers / turntable works with this setup, that leaves me change for the other bits…
I’m not looking for ‘go out and buy this’ just some helpful pointers in which direction to look…
Any advice welcome
