TLDR for the advice. That record player looks pretty cool, but it won't play super well and will damage your records. It's a very thoughtful gift, but I recommend getting the Audio Technica LP60 instead. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N3RFXRL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_uvSwFbKCP3H5Z

Also, get some powered speakers and you'll be set: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_AwSwFb93Q6G9C

This will give you a nice easy setup that will sound great, won't damage your records, and won't cause you any problems.

Best of luck!

These are passive speakers that will need an amp, and they're also not the near-field type so they're better for a TV setup than the $100 Edifiers that are usually used as PC speakers. A more apt comparison is the Micca MB42X, and the usual /r/BudgetAudiophile opinion is that the Miccas are far better than the Polk.

Even a “cheap/affordable” vinyl setup is around $200

Its an expensive hobby, but here is a great starter setup:

These Edifier R1280T are very affordable and are at a good price point. I’m a newbie but I use these for my LP60 and can’t complain at all. Very affordable beginner setup!

Grab a pair of powered bookshelf speakers.

I used Kanto YUMIs, but even some edifiers would be nice.

I recently got a pair of these. They're awesome and really put out some sound waves. They will need to be equalized as out of the box they can sound tinny. They are only 21W/speaker but they can shake my room when gaming or watching an action movie.

Edit: there is also a bluetooth model available if you wanted that option too. I think they're like $20 more.

Id get a $99 pair of Edifer R1280T speakers. They include a 3.5mm to RCA cable to connect to your projector.

If your not willing to save a bit, choices are more limited.

Check out the Cyber Acoustics speakers on Amazon that have a sub. I’ve used a set in the past on a computer and they sounded great.

That turntable and a pair of powered speakers is fine. You don't need to invest in other components. At the absolute worst, you could use a pair of PC speakers. I wouldn't, but you could. I bought the LP-60X and these Edifier speakers and it works well.

The needle that comes with it is fine if you're buying it new.

These Edifiers are pretty much the default recommendation for starter speakers: https://www.amazon.com/Edifier-R1280T-Powered-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=edifier+speakers&qid=1586378166&sprefix=edif&sr=8-3

These should be all you need since the amplifier is included. (Again, make sure the turntable is set to line, not phono).

If there wasn't a pandemic right now I would recommend hitting up local thrift stores for inexpensive used speakers and a reciever, but obviously these aren't normal times!

You might be able to but there may be some latency, personally I would get something like these if you don't want to worry about buying an amp and speakers. This will put any pc speaker in that price range to shame imo. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fab_e9hGFbX8WECR1

Don’t spend more money for Bluetooth. Bluetooth on a record player is silly.

These are solid budget speakers: Edifier R1280T Powered Bookshelf Speakers - 2.0 Stereo Active Near Field Monitors - Studio Monitor Speaker - Wooden Enclosure - 42 Watts RMS https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_KXn4EbYDA5MVK

Combine the LP60x with the above speakers and you’re good to go.

Just one example. There are many more models. Search for edifier on Amazon

It all depends on how much you're willing to spend. These will be great for a lower budget oriented setup!

Looking at your suggested system, there's no mention of a subwoofer which is included with this. Is the subwoofer just not that important for general use? Is it more important for more serious or professional setups? Similarly, how important is the amp? Considering buying the speakers and then the amp later when I've got more money.

And, off-topic, how do the Micca compare with Edifier R1280T? Both are around the same price point on Amazon right now.

Looks like Edifier R1280T. Cheap $100 powered desktop speakers.

Thank you so much!

The headphone jack to some cheap speakers is alright by me. I'm only looking to produce audio whilst not using my headphones so I can - for example - have it at low volume, just enough to hear what's going on, whilst farming on a game (or something else that doesn't require full attention), and then have my second TV with Netflix, YT, etc, going on.

"You can buy any speakers like this, just connect the red/white cables to the PC in on that speaker and there are no settings to change on the PS4 for audio"

Sorry for being dumb, but the wording here confused me. The "PC in" and "no settings" part.

1st. Do you mean red/white cables coming from that extractor? So red/white to them linked speakers' "PC in" or something?

2nd. Does that mean there are no settings available or that there's no settings that need to be changed?

Using this extractor will also still provide me with the full image quality, etc; I won't have to make any compromise to use that device? I know it says 4k, etc, but I just want be sure.

Sorry to rattle on with all of these questions. I'm really slow and illiterate when it comes to all of this stuff.

"Off topic but video related, the PS4 has a hard time with LG displays and applying the correct black level, in PS4 video settings set RGB range to Limited and in monitor settings look under picture adjust->black level and make sure it is set to low."

Once again: Thank you. I wouldn't have known about that otherwise.

I recently purchased a U-Turn Orbit which from what I understand doesn’t have a pre-amp. I am looking as this speakers. I don’t think it comes with a pre-amp. What should I buy for a pre-amp, i’m lost. Budget is under $200 for both speakers and pre-amp if what i’ve chosen is dogshit

Maybe try out the Edifier R1280T

I personally haven't used them but it will be my first purchase once I have the money for it.

I've read really good things from others on r/budgetaudiophile about these speakers. And you can see many people using them on r/battlestations.

Hope this helps.

Well would you look at that, a set of powered speakers which conveniently fits exactly what you need!

Also important to note that virtually every amazon setup uses this.

I hope you got those on sale for $99, the are very similar to Edifier R1280T $99.

Alright, a lot to unpack here:

In terms of pure sound quality the hk is much better than the Sony.

The hk has a battery, will last ~4-6 hours of continuous play before needing to recharge.

Bookshelf speaker: check these out. They dont have a battery, but will otherwise do all the same as the sony or HK units.


With regard to JBL: I would usually say their products are overpiced, but the XTREME 2 is currently on sale for $150 (as well as some others). I own this one and am pretty happy with it. Will sound good, but not as good as the HK. I've never drained it dry, but i get at least 10 hours of battery life out of it.

Edifier speakers, I got them on sale. They're okay. They have built in eq and volume knobs and get loud enough for my purposes but you'll want something beefier if you aren't sitting at the desk in front of them. It did take a bit of tweaking the eq to make it sound right and I have the treble just about maxed out. You'll probably want a subwoofer if you're into bass. The model up from it hss a line out from the R speaker for a subwoofer

If you don't have an amp to drive these, then the R1280T for $100 is a good deal.

I have these and for price, punch above their pay grade.

r/audiophile • comment

I am going to assume you plugged in headphones directly into the turntable using the provided cables. Unfortunately signals from a record player are typically very low and require amplification.

For powered speakers I would start with some Edifiers. If you do decide to chase that high fidelity dragon there are many other options you can go for in the future. But for now i think these are good way to get started without breaking the bank.

Also check out /r/BudgetAudiophile for some low costs suggestions too.

These are supposed to be pretty good for the price and should sound much better than "gaming" brand speakers. https://www.amazon.com/Edifier-R1280T-Powered-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B016P9HJIA

If you don't like the wood finish there's similar options in black. Just make sure they have the red and white rca style inputs and volume control so you can run them off your motherboard sound card.

I am looking to build my first set up so I can play this stack of records I have accumulated. I was about to pull the trigger on the $100 audio technica player with these speakers but after browsing this sub I am having second thoughts. I like the idea of having that setup for $200 but would be willing to drop a little more if it is absolutely worthwhile. Craigslist around me is kinda dead but there were a few recievers that looks decent at a good price. Can probably find a player at a thrift store but im worried about quality and would prefer to not have to fix it up. Any tips would be greatly appreciated
