You are starting to fish completely in the dark now me thinks but if you want to go s/h and older, a Sony STR-DB930 and a pair of Mordaunt Short MS20i Pearls would be my suggestion. Decent phono stage and DAC's built in and it should leave change for a TT.Eland said:So is there any iconic/well-trusted gear I should keep an eye out for??
I found a pair of KLH Model 6's on craigslist near me. Would those be worth picking up?
?? These monitors (+cheap audio interface) will outsound ANY integrated + passive combination for similar (and bigger money). So will a pair of Yamaha HS5/7/8, Adam A5X/A7X etc. The JBLs are very well regarded, and they're actually some of the warmer sounding ones.drummerman said:Didn't Vladimir have something like those?gasolin said:Not shure the have Q Acoustics in usa, nyc (New york city)muljao said:

I think he disappeared from here shortly thereafter and some say he lost his mind
Honestly, I would stay away from these cheap actives.
I'd say they are probably a sure way of putting you off listening to music. With the OP's budget you want something that masks its faults reasonably well and sounds nice rather than attempting to be accurate and failing ... which they almost certainly will for that money.
for 250 bucks (new) and who knows ho little SH? Ok...lindsayt said:No they won't Rainsoothe. Not if you buy 2nd hand. Not even close.
In this thread the OP is living in the real world where things like Craigslist and an abundant choice of good 2nd hand audio equipment exists.
If he follows my advice, he'll be in deep water to the tune of 20 bucks on the amplifier front.luckylion100 said:if he doesn't have someone to guide him and offer specific (not general) advice about any potential 2nd hand puchased he could find himself in deep water and budget down the drain. Will you guide him? And of course in mentioning the 2nd hand market I suspect the focus is solely on a passive amp and speaker selection presumably because this is the way he intends to go. But this budget could also purchase a very decent active set of speakers better than those previously mentioned. Not arguing for an active solution here just saying.
