Question Help with my first build - P3, what next?

Jan 6, 2023
Hi all,

I'm looking for some help with my first setup. I'm in my early 20s and I started getting into HiFi and vinyl over the past year thanks to my father in law.
He's 60 and loves this stuff. Anyways, I thought I'd spark up a conversation here.

My current setup is quite fun, as it consists of his old stuff and a turntable I bought recently.

So, I have an old but gold AudioLab 8000A (internal phono stage is MM & MC) as my amp.
My father in law is currently in the process of building me a pre-amp, and I have some old Monitor Audio Speakers of his, which are Silver S5 (501350).
My turntable is a Rega Planar 3 with Exact Cartridge. I also have a Yamaha MusicCast plugged into the amp that I use for any quick remote usage (rarely).

So, I'm looking to upgrade incrementally (I'm not a millionaire, and I'm happy with my turntable for now).
I'm open to all ideas and suggestions. I'm UK based.
I'm thinking speakers next, but please let me know what you think.

I'm a vinyl guy. Beatles, Stones --> ELO --> Pink Floyd --> Oasis, if you go along that line of things.

Many thanks everyone.
