Get yourself over to the nearest Richer sounds mate if you can.....or Superfi , ...etc.....But also when you do see something you like, check the web for decent prices......If youre playing vinyl, cd, etc...you will need a hifi stereo amp.....don't get mixed up and buy a multi cinema type amp...even if cheaper...these are for tv, dvd speakers set up..etc......

You will need a amp with built in phono stage....or you will need to buy a small phono stage thingy...like pro-ject.

also think about how many speakers you will require...you may only need the normal one set for one room...But some amps like mine have two sets so you can use two sets of speakers, say for two rooms at the same time, or either room...

Then think how many units you will be using it for......deck, cd, cassette even, tuner, ...etc......Good luck.

Just a thought....you can pick up without speakers the Denon  DM 39...about £169.......which is a space saving unit..,which will be a cd, dab, unit + usb input to let you play your files...etc....But even though it does habe a rca input..( normal 2 wire leads )...think to play a turntable through it you will need the pro-ject phono box thingy ?.....But check.Richer, superfi, sell these.

If it's just to play your records, I'd recommend a NAD 3020. I bought one new in about 1987 and still going strong !!!

Very basic, no frills, good enough to make a right old racket in most homes.

 

Simply plug your deck and speakers into the back and away you go. Can also plug in CD and Tuner (and tape deck!!)

 

Plenty second hand on eBay - about £80

Hi jack, superfl in Manchester have some great deals on at the minute, I went to by an amp on Monday which they didn't have in stock but gave me a Denon PMA-520AE for £119 which was reduced from £179 to £129, I just asked could they do a better price, works great with my warfdale speakers and audio technica AT120 turntable....
