Hi I want to buy a turntable , more for sunday's listening sessions than every day listening . so don't need expensive one . but i've got mostly 180g pressings in my small collection ( about 20 ) so I want to achieve the best sound possible for no more than 250 £ :silenced: Would Audio Technica ATLP 120 with Ortofon concorde pro s sound like Rega RP1 with ottofon 2M red ? ( I know its over my budget :roll: ) I dont want to buy used TT I dont have good experience .

A.T's advantage is pitch control ( I also like electronic music ) and usb for hi res rips .

thank You fellaz

Convenience/ripping LPs etc... AT-LP120-USB (Superfi have them for £179 so you could afford to fit an AT120e cartridge within your budget).

Sound quality... Rega RP1 (at a later date you could buy the 'Performance Pack' upgrade)

What Hi-fi? have reviews of both machines online.

With only 20 LPs I would be tempted not to bother with a turntable at all. (Unless you plan to get a lot more records.)

Worth checking the 'favourite albums' are available on vinyl, there a few I would like but are not on 180gs, so its boot sales and charity shops for the older ones . . . any really modern alums may never have been issued in vinyl?
