Turntable Question
#1
Have a stack of 33's and 45's and a 30 year old turntable.
Not sure if I can connect the record player to a modern A/V
receiver. The Denon manual makes no mention of a turntable Huh
I only use the amp to upscale all satellite feeds to 1080p anyway.
If I need to buy a new turntable what do members recommend?
Bang & Olufsen don't seem to make turntables anymore but they
would be a first choice. I need to protect the 1966 Buffalo Springfield
album not to mention the Debussy collection.

+1 or dig up some old fashioned equipment. I still use my late 70s early 80s set up mostly pioneer components except for kenwood and cerwin vega speakers. the cd player is newer of coarse but hard to beat the a$$ kicking sound of an old silver face modular pioneer system. I use mine in the shop for motivational purposes...LOL...and it will put a thumpin on ya!

Specialy the modern turn tables.... http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/gad...rnized.htm artical on them...you have to flip threw the pages..But yes..You should be able to hook any turn table up that had audio video plug...Or a regular old plug will work too....with the right adaptors..You can even get it too plug into a USB!!

Hey, Mike, if you'd asked this question 30 years ago I would have had a definitive answer for you, but you know how it goes with age. And it's almost like asking "What's the best color for a Mach I". A lot of it is personal preference and how much money, etc. You know how it works.

I was very content with my Technics turntables with the right needles. Are any of your albums half-speed mastered or higher fidelity? I would feel comfortable playing my old albums on my Technics equipment, or most Audio-Technica turntables. With the advent of CDs, not many people have the opportunity to appreciate sounds above 8 - 10K, if memory serves correctly. Vinyl, especially half-speed mastered, maintains fidelity above that of CDs (and I believe any digitally mastered or recorded music, like mp3). Analogue is hard to find anymore (remember cassettes that contained CrO2 and other metal alloys? Ancient history.)

Anyway, that's my 2 cents, but I'm hoping someone with more knowledge or a better memory comes along, because this is a topic that consumed a lot of my spare time years ago.

Back when I was a mobile DJ, I only used Technics 1200 turntables. Their sound with the right stylus, would rival that of those new fangled compact disc players!

The turntable is labeled MCS and purchased at a JCPenney store.
I found a belt a few years ago and found this website for a needle.

The parts for these old turntables are still out there.

Belt drive vs direct drive? Gawd, the discussions we used to have in the barracks in Japan in 1980 about the subject. Gotta let you know that direct drive always prevailed. Cool
