The cheap Audio Technica AT-120XUSB also has a 78rpm facility, you can buy 78rpm adapters for some Pro-ject decks and Rega do a 78rpm only deck.The only turntable that springs to mind with 78 is the ClearAudio Concept, which IMO is an excellent all-round table. They also come with MM and MC cartridges.
£2500 would get you the basic Prima Luna EVO 100 amp if indeed valves were required, it only outputs 40wpc but should be sufficient. Note: an external phono preamp would also need to be purchased.Technics 1500c and above do 78rpm with no fuss just a button press (well 2 at the same time) get what ever stylus you like. I quite like nag. Currently have the 150mp. couldn't recommend a mono stylus i have no desire to use one so no experiance.
Amps id look at musical fidelity, sugden if you fancy the class A sound and if you must have valves prima luna
though not sure how much they are these days. All should drive the ls50 to room-filling levels.
Naims newly released limited run Nait looks to be very good also. And can pretty much drive anything looking that spec sheet. And a true investment piece which is rare in hifi circles.
but in the 1500-2.5k there are plenty to choose from.
Interesting....The cheap Audio Technica AT-120XUSB also has a 78rpm facility, you can buy 78rpm adapters for some Pro-ject decks and Rega do a 78rpm only deck.
Quite a few Thorens decks like the 148a have 78rpm facility.
Same here....I'd need to sell some of my other gear though....and I can't really be bothered atm..lol....but that Volvere is probably a end game tt for me.Well he did say up to £2500 on each so it leaves a bit for the cartridge.
I'd be on that like a shot if I intended to by with that sort of budget.
Avid turntables are very, very good.
Hey PP.....your source can never be overkill....The Lynn and Naim moto " source first" as I'm sure you are very much aware...and I'm sure this applies to turntables (and their accessories) more than today's contemporary streamers/dacs etc.Just been looking at the Origin Live/Onyx, it looks good but fear it would be an overkill for my amp.
